This visit couldn’t have been more different. I see something I’ve never seen before each time I visit the gardens, and this was no exception. Hidden fountains trickled into tucked away ponds, bees buzzed, and the wildflower meadow was glorious with blooming cosmos and gerber daisies.
And along the paths and in the trees, hidden harbingers of fall made their appearance. The first crimson leaves, scarlet berries, Japanese maples just starting to change—stand by for momojigari (leaf viewing)!
