Today’s second #kanji is #園. It’s made of #くにがまえ（囗）and 袁. In Japanese 袁 is not usually used alone but it apparently describes a long dress/robe being worn loosely. I guess you can wear a loose long dress in 園.
袁 is made of 土 + 口 + the bottom part of 衣（ころも/garment）. Altogether 13 strokes and it’s listed as a Year 2 kanji (I think it’s mean!).
