May was the time for the penjing (Chinese bonsai) show. There are always some on exhibit, but others are added in May.
Although I had heard that landscape was more typical of Chinese than Japanese miniatures, there was only one example. I especially like the flowering miniatures.
June, of course, is rose month; although I was too late for the pink roses, the red were in full bloom along with other flowers and water lilies.
There was a most unusual bloom: here is bush and close-up.
And the water was clear enough and the light right to photograph the fish.
None of my “regular” spots were particularly photogenic on these visits. The stuffed dragons are down, so I never did get all 9 of them photographed, but the ones hanging now are much more ornate.
I am not sure how many there are to find or how long they will be hanging.
Oh, and a May Apple–from May of course. The Chinese version is much larger than the wild ones in our forests–leaves about waist high.
The delay in posting is the result of the WiFi being down over the weekend…there will be a July visit or two.
