Brian's day off

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!
