Do Not Enter

I love how the “do not enter” gate uses a piece of bamboo set into notched pillars of granite. A classy touch.

Beautiful!

Where mosses grow, so do ferns, one of my specialities – so how about a photographic fern challenge, Jeffrey? I can tell you, they are not easy things to photograph, but in Japan you have about 600 species to practice on – in the UK, a paltry 70 or so. I’m waiting!

Your pink bell-shaped flower is a European foxglove, a long way from home.

These pictures are wonderful. I love the mosses and natural intrusion into man made places in Japan. I saw some beautiful mossy gardens in Japan back in 2002 and this brings back memories.
