Chain Grove


Stone lantern in front of a Buddhist temple in the neighborhood surrounded by many lovely spring blossoms.


A pagoda-style stone garden decoration in the same Buddhist garden.


This canal runs right by the house and follows along a road leading the Buddhist funeral home (above) and the bottom of the stairs that lead up to the Shinto Shrine (below).



Love taking the dog for her walk on mornings after it has rained. The green tones really stand out!


Interesting mix of coniferous and deciduous trees, and bamboo stalks.


Was surprised to see this chain along the border of the "public property" and "private property" since we both went way off the trail to explore the greenery at the top of this hill in the neighborhood.


Puppy got a little stuck between two trees!
