Isn’t she elegant? She came into my picture at the right moment. I love these little stone bridges…

It was our first day in Kyoto. It was a sunny day. We found this garden and spent quite a long time here, reading and taking photos.

So beautiful.

I hope your photos of Japan never ends! I am really loving the memories they bring back of my 2 trips the last couple of years. These are lovely. The beautiful green maple leaves will turn to the most vibrant reds imaginable in the fall...that's what I hope to see someday. The lady in the kimono with the umbrella walks with such grace...I can just see her slight footsteps.

You and Woody are up first for Sunday Bridges - even before it publishes or the Linky opens!

This is fun - having posts to the meme going up even before the host's posts!

I'm ready to get back on the plane to Kyoto NOW. As Carolyn mentioned, in the fall that pretty green maple leaf turns a brilliant red... that is what I got. I was going to post a Kyoto bridge photo for Louis tomorrow, but you beat me to it. :-D
