This past weekend was actually a 3-day weekend. It rained for the most part of it. Sunday, it was really gloomy and drizzly. We went to Kawanishi for lunch and checked out their kiku (chrysanthemum) display.
I was impressed with their bonsai. If you click on the photo you'll see that the roots of the kiku go all the way down the carved rock!
Another thing I was impressed with were these very tall kiku.
If you look at the potting, each pot has 3 stems, but they all come from one plant! Amazing!
There were also very different varieties of chrysanthemum.
Autumn is here.
