During Golden Week, we visited the beautiful garden on Daikonshima, Yuushien. The garden is famous for its peonies and has 250 different Japanese varieties. Many were still in full bloom while we were there.
It was a warm, sunny day, with a brilliant blue sky. We strolled along the garden paths, over the beautiful vermiliion bridge, and admired the little waterfall.
Also stunning were the many trellises with their veils of blooming wisteria.♥
This morning was overcast, and it looked like it might rain at any moment. Imagine my surprise then, when I caught the powerful scent of daphne in the air while walking to Hair Innovation. I followed the scent and found a plant already full of fragrant blossoms!
For the past five years, I’ve posted about my childhood Halloween costumes. Here is a picture from when I was in second grade. I chose to be a cute, pink(!) rabbit, but my brother chose to be scary Count Dracula!🧛 Of course, we went trick-or-treating right after the picture was taken!!
