15th June, 2014
It is a fine day, about 25C and a little sultry.
We decided not to do housework but to go to the park
for a picnic instead.
Luncheon is served.
There is wonderful woodland with a fast-flowing stream. Perfect for a casual ramble .
Maple tree, I think.
Of special interest to me is the amazing rose garden.
Natural spires look so much better than the artificial one.
Ice cream is perfect on a hot afternoon. Bit of a queue in the shop.
Unbelievably, there are still patches of snow high up on the surrounding mountains.
The centre peak is Mt. Adatara.
The very substantial rock walls were part of an ancient water diversion from the nearby river.
Hanamizuki - bloodwood tree.
A relaxing Sunday arvo in the park.
