It's stormy here on this Sunday morning and leaves are flying off trees at the same time as others are just coloring up. It's a pretty mess that we can wait to clean up.
Meanwhile we can remember that sunny day last Tuesday when we spent some time in Kubota Garden, surrounded by the glow of autumnal beauty.This is a more recently developed area with a more naturalized large pond.
We were winding down our visit and working our way slowly to the exit. We stopped for Tom to take a photo of me on this bench. A lady stopped and asked if we would like her to take a photo of both of us. She was from California, visiting her daughter, who had told her about this garden. She was just beginning her exploration but was thrilled by what she was discovering. I think all visitors feel that way here.
Yew tree berries.
Inside the gate. This visit is over, but the memories linger and will compel me to visit every October as long as I can.
