Methodist church in Gary, Autumn.
It has been a crazy week, I need some peace so we’re heading back to the Anderson Japanese Gardens. Let us start with one of my favorite aspects, koi.
Nice, I do love the koi, but I need something a little calmer.
Better, but I really am too tired to think about climbing all those steps no matter how much I wonder where they lead.
I see you fishy, and could sit by your pond all day.
Another mysterious stairway, alas it was deemed out of bounds for visitors.
Oh no, it has risen! It has come to eat your soul!
Or just a bit of granola bar I tossed into the pond.
Of course while there is always that one show-off who turns color early, there is also the stubborn hold-out who waits until all the other trees are naked before turning. Around it here it tends to be the ginkos, they’re too busy dropping foul berries all over the sidewalk to consider looking pretty.
