On Saturday morning, my daughter Kathy called to see if I would like to spend the day with her. Then she picked me up and we went to lunch at Red Robin In Carmel, In. After lunch of burgers and fries. we went to a shoe store. Lots of people and lots of shoes. We did not buy any. LOL
We went to Kathy's and look at bird watching pictures on face book. Then the sun came out again. So Kathy suggested we go this adorable Japanese garden. It's called Kawachinagano Japanese Garden. That is a sister city to Carmel.
The weeping willow was leafing out.
There were daffodils and hyacinths. It was a calm beautiful place. Always plenty of people out and about in this city. Most walking dogs...and some actually cleaning up after their dogs. :)
This was called Sukiya-Mon, the garden gate. Very nice. I really enjoyed our time in this little garden. So pretty and peaceful. You could smell the scent of the flowers too.
Big koi fish swimming along with bluegills.
This was the biggest koi. We did not have anything to feed them. Maybe next time.
This is Carmel city hall. It is next to the Japanese garden. This is a busy city. Lots to offer.
I think this is the entertainment center. I can not tell you how many urns and containers they had on this spot. They were all full of pansies. The grounds keepers are doing a fine job.
There are statues all over this city and here is a brass trio. So nice. The day went from 76 degrees to 46 by the time I returned home. I was certainly glad I wore a light weight jacket at least.
Today is snowing and thankfully not sticking to anything...but it is cold. It will only be about 38-40 today. Winter is hanging on...but I see glimpses of spring here and there...so it can't stay cold. Wishing all of you a great new week. XO
