Sunny Japanese Garden

If you happened to see only the young maple tree, you’d swear it was autumn at the Arboretum’s Japanese Garden. But in full sunshine and 75 degrees this morning, it was definitely summer! It’s hard to believe I’m saying this during the first week of June, but Greg and I decided to get out early before the day got too hot. It’s the kind of day we wait most of the year for!

  1. Nice job on the tree, but I'm impressed with the koi and the turtle. Nicely done!

  2. Love the koi sketches. I see some sumi-i influence there. I chuckled over the 'it's hot' comment. We're at a time when it's a crapshoot whether I should wear shorts or long pants. I rarely get it right :-)
