Brian took Thursday and Friday off, so we took advantage of the wonderful weather and visited the Fort Worth Botanic Garden. It was a perfect day, and the autumn colors were brilliant against the bright blue sky:
The Japanese Garden at FWBG is one of my favorite places. The garden is a beautiful and contemplative place. It has so much to offer -- water features:
The brilliant colors of Japanese maples:
Beautiful architecture and paving:
I loved the rather random pattern of the cobblestones. Not sure why...
Ravenous (and astoundingly large) koi:
Arching bridges (Brian only adds to the natural beauty):
And plentiful turtles:
After our walk around the garden, we had a delicious Thai lunch. What a lovely day!
