Fall Colors and a Black Pine

Fall colors and a Black Pine


This is the first Fall for me here at Aichi-en and it’s amazing!  As all the deciduous trees start to change colors, I really got a sense of the change in season.  Also, the cold temperatures reminded me of that as well.  So far, I have found that in Nagoya, the Spring is short and the Fall is short.  The longest seasons seem to be the Summer and Winter.  Perhaps it’s just my mind playing tricks on me because the Summers are so hot and the Winters are so cold.  ;o)  Coming from California where the weather is mild year round, I’ve had to adjust to the weather in Japan big time.  I have to care what I’m going to wear because I’ll either freeze or suffer a heat stroke!  Having said that, I can’t complain though (though I think I just did) because it’s a great experience for me and it’ll make going home to California that much sweeter at the end.  In this post, I’m going to give you readers a sense of what Fall is like here at the nursery and I’m going to sneak in a Black Pine that I worked on recently.  Here we go!
