Autumn Beauty in a Japanese Garden

Some of the most colorful spots to visit during the autumn season is a Japanese garden. There is usually one located in major city parks, often hidden in a secluded area, nestled within the confines of a quiet, natural area. And, sometimes, they are found in areas that you would never think you would find them. Such is the Japanese garden hidden away in the beautiful Bloedel Reserve, located on Bainbridge Island, Washington. Here you can walk a few miles on groomed trails within a quiet, old-growth forest, and then suddenly come upon a clearing that contains an eloquent Japanese garden. Fortunately for me, I timed my visit to the garden at just the right time, when the leaves were at their prime colors. Here are a few photos of the garden that I hope you will enjoy.

Bloedel Reserve is privately owned, and there is a gate entrance fee. Please visit site link listed above for more info.

    The autumn color is exquisite! There happens to be one laceleaf Japanese maple at work that colored well, but only because of a bit of distress and a particular exposure. Otherwise, they are sort of mediocre here. We just lack the right sort of weather.

    What a charming and beautiful collection of images of this lovely and soothing garden. It’s wonderful how just seeing the photos made me shoulders relax, with a deep ahhhh! 😀

    • Thanks, Gunta! I’m glad you found the photos of the garden very relaxing! It naturally does that to whoever enters this garden place. It is a little bit of heaven! I wish I lived closer to it. I would be spending a lot of time there!

Thank you!
