The Japanese Garden at the Fort Worth Botanical Gardens

Today I went to the Japanese Gardens.  I’m from New Jersey, and a friend of mine from back home showed me some photos of the fall foliage there, which inspired me to go to the Botanical Gardens today to see if there were any autumn colors.   At it’s peak, the Japanese Garden is one of the most beautiful places to go, the red maple trees reflected in the water is breathtaking.  Normally that is not until late November, but I thought I’d try today.

For the most part right now, everything is still green, but I did manage to pick out a few views with some very pretty colors.   I will try and return sometime late November to check again.

Yesterday, Oct. 23, I went to the zoo to see the baby elephants.   I will make another posting over the weekend with some thoughts and photos but I haven’t had a chance to go through all of my photos yet to decide which ones to post.   I had to go this week, because next week I will be in Hawaii and I will have to miss seeing them!   Soon, I want to put up photos of Belle’s and Bowie’s growth since they were presented to the public.   Belle has filled out, last I heard she was already 590 pounds, and Bowie was only 330, but then he’s a month younger and he was also born 6 weeks early… but more about that when I post the zoo photos over the weekend.    I hope you enjoy looking at the Japanese Gardens.

  3. I enjoyed the photos. You have a cool perspective of the images you take. I did not realize at first you were a dancer, glad to hear it. Carol and i dance as well. We do country. Two step, shuffle, waltz, and west coast swing. We dont go as often as we used to but still enjoying dancing. Glad you found a new partner. Hope it works well for you

    1. Thank you, Boyd, yes, I’m a dancer 🙂 I haven’t done much country/western, I love West Coast, but haven’t done it in awhile… I’ll check your photos on Facebook and send you a friend request. I am

      And thank you so much for the compliments on my photography, I’m sure I’ll see you around at the zoo!


  4. So you are from New Jersey!!! Great pictures Laura. And great writer!!!! Congratulations.


    1. Thanks Nestor! Yes I was born in and lived in NJ up until the last 51/2 years. The last 10 years in Jersey we lived in East Windsor, not very far from Jackson. We love it here in Texas now…. Although today the weather is probably warmer up by you. I’ll check your site out later or tomorrow :). Thanks again for visiting and the nice words about my work.


    2. Very nice gallery Nestor! I especially enjoyed the photos of Colombia. Where in Colombia were they taken? I thought I noticed one in the Salt Cathedral somewhere near Bogotá? My husband and I adopted our daughter from Colombia, Pereira in the Risaralda region. Anyway, I enjoyed looking through your gallery! Laura
