Over the weekend, I realized that I hadn't been to the Japanese Friendship Garden in a long time so I took a walk there on Saturday morning. The garden looked a bit different in several areas with a few new plants and others were gone.
The crepe myrtle trees were blooming and showing off these red (and a few white) clusters of blooms. I was surprised by all the unexpected 'bokeh' in this shot when I downloaded it.
There was a large patch of lilies on one area. I must have taken dozen photos of all the pretty blooms. I found them so appealing.
My favorite sighting were these adorable little ducklings. There weren't many ducks around while I was there so I was surprised when I spotted these two little ones along with an attentive mother near by. They were relaxing in the cool grass while their mother did a little foraging.
