kiku

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.

Pretty! I especially like the one where the root goes down the rock, that is amazing! I wonder if we have chrysanthemum's here in California as pretty as the ones in Japan.
