kiku

it's chrysanthemum season #autumn #kiku #Japan #kawanishi #hyogo #flower 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.

IMG_8697 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!

IMG_8698 Another thing I was impressed with were these very tall kiku.

IMG_8699 If you look at the potting, each pot has 3 stems, but they all come from one plant! Amazing!

IMG_8700 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.
