The spring of the Morning Calm begins at the same time as the yellow adonis , winter hazel, and abundant flowers bloom.

Looking at plants that show their faces vigorously in the warm sunshine gives off a fresh spring energy.

The sound of water flowing through the frozen valley and the singing of birds, and the verdure grow on the thin branches that shrink all the whole winter time.

The view of The Garden of Morning Calm holding a Mt.Bukryeong seems to be simply the watercolor painting.

From anywhere, you can enjoy the colorful fall foliage of Mt.Chungryeong, which forms the background.

In the morning, with the scent of autumn chrysanthemums, the autumn glows with red foliage under the high blue sky.

Plants that showed off their beauty during spring, summer, and fall, all start preparing for the winter with their heads down in the cold.

The plain sight of the garden covered with white snow is calm and peaceful.

If you walk slowly along the snow, the sound of water flowing under the ice and chirping birds sounds clears your mind.
