Meladramas

Sunday, I spent an "alone" day at Kyodo No Mori,
walking and painting...

I packed up all my materials, and went by bicycle to the park...

I wasn't sure where to set my cap,
until almost walking a full circle.

I looked inside a graveled drive,
and a fleck of cornflower blue caught my eye...

I was saddened to learn of Ray Manzarek's passing...

I've always loved this song,
and Ray's elegant keyboard on it :





"Riders On The Storm"

I returned to the Jindai Botanical Garden,
yesterday...

The rose gardens are in full bloom.

Myself, and a small group of my friends,
spent the day under the spell of Mother Nature...

From the intoxicating roses; so fragrant and breathtakingly beautiful,
to the lush ferns and grasses, and verdant tall trees...


Here are a few pics:

Thursday, I went to Kyodo No Mori,
a beautiful forest-like historical site, in my neighborhood...

My friend, Iijima-san,
joined me.

I so enjoy strolling around this space...

From the historical buildings, and planetarium,
to the well-kept gardens, streams, and ponds :
