Japanese Tea Gardens

On an overcast and chilly Saturday, we head up north to one of my favorite photography locations, the San Mateo Japanese Tea Gardens in Central Park. We were late in some of the early spring blooms, but caught the early growth of the ornamental Japanese maple trees.

  • Some unusual yellow blossoming plant.

  • Picturesque fountain with a couple of mallards.

  • Toby in a sea of pink blossoms.

  • Look, no one on the bridge but ME.

  • A unique Japanese maple just starting to sprout leaves.

  • A delicate red maple.

  • A colorful blossoming plant, love the shades of color in one plant.

  • FWEE .. had to jump!

  • I love this plant, reminds me of my youth in Salinas.
