FALLEN PETALS

At the Bellevue Botanical Garden, cherry trees in the woods are already shedding flower petals.

 

If you peer closely at the cherry blossoms you can see shadows stamens cast on the petals.

Gravel crunches underfoot; the trees glow in late afternoon light.

The stream shines with reflections of trees and sky.

The Japanese Pavilion gathers long shadows.

And…it’s time for coffee!
