Lan Su Chinese Garden

Pomegranates growing in the garden.
I had never seen one growing before.
On the bottom is part of the original blossom.
A banana tree grows there too.
It was a rainy day, but perfect for exploring during
a time that was quiet, peaceful, and not high tourist season.
Quite beautiful in the rain.

I was amazed at the growing persimmon tree.
It was full of fruit not quite ready to pick.

Isn't it amazing how life cycles come and go, sometimes
when we aren't looking.
A child will continue growing,
fruit continues to flourish,
we get older and the colors become
more brilliant.
