How was your weekend? I enjoyed mine by walking through the incredible 20-acre Kubota Gardens, a dream-like Japanese garden in south Seattle. It seems like not too many people know about it - I felt like the only one there. I found secret trails and serene hidden resting spots. It was pouring down rain when I got there, but as luck would have it, the sun came out just as I pulled my camera out.
I'm sort of infatuated with Japanese maples in autumn, so I wanted to make sure to visit the gardens before the heavy rains washed all the leaves away. The intense reds, pinks, oranges, and greens are just breathtaking, don't you think?
