Japanese Gardens

Yesterday Vicki and I spent some time at the Japanese Gardens.  We had not been expecting that it was free admission day, but it was, which meant A LOT of people were there. So, it could have been a more peaceful experience, but it was still enjoyable. The foliage is still some bright orange and reds were still visible among the browns and greens.  I most enjoyed the water features - ponds, fountains, waterfalls, and the interesting stone paths.  I love the way different textures and materials can be used in ways that are functional and beautiful.

Here is one of my favorite pictures from the day.

Isn't the surface of the water remarkable?

Happy Weekend!
