Magical Wanderings in Wonderland…

Yesterday we went to Elswout which is within (long) walking distance from where we are staying, in Holland.  Back in the day this used to be a summer property for the rich.  Now it is parkland which mystical pathways that lead you around into what appears to be Middle Earth.  Moss and bridges and trees.  So beautiful.

A trip to the old hood…

 

Today we went a few train stations away to visit the old neighbourhood that we lived in the first time we came to Tokyo.  We walked to our old guesthouse, which, while old and dark, is in a beautiful park like setting with bamboo and purple flowers in bloom.  There is the final type of sakura blooming now, which happens to be my favourite because it’s layered and ruffled.  Most of the cherry blossoms are now done and the other flowers, such as tulips and lilacs are starting.  I am going to a Wisteria Festival next weekend and hope to have lots of beautiful photos.
