Cherry Trees in Fall

For some reason I always miss the color change of cherry trees in the fall. I never see these beautiful leaves on the cherry tree.

I did see this cherry tree the other day at Jindai Botanical Gardens, but the colors were bleached out by the sun. The sun was too bright.

We used to come to see these cherry trees at the Jindai Botanical Gardens every spring. I still do. This walkway has a canopy of cherry blossoms, sakura in the spring.

This is another walkway at the Gardens. It leads to a covered sitting area with benches. It is near a big section of cherry trees where people have picnics for blossom viewing, o-hanami. People sit on plastic sheets and eat under the trees to enjoy the blossoms.
