Autumn in the Japanese Garden

Autumn is fading fast on the US East coast as we head into Winter. Japanese gardens have a special beauty in all seasons because of the mix of natural features as well as plantings and architecture. I was looking around the web and wanted to capture a few pictures of the beauty of Autumn in the Japanese garden before it all disappears into the silver and white of Winter.

This beautiful shot was taken by Sarairachel in Capitol Hill, Seattle.        Sarairachel



So enviable...
maple-leaves
most glorious 
Contemplating death

The winds that blow -
Ask them which leaf on the tree 
Will be next to go.

Autumn wind
in Ise's shrine cemetery
even more lonely.
