The Gardener’s View

Frost Falls Upon the Garden
In the morning, when temperatures fall inside the garden, there are times when the garden greets its visitors not with a snowy landscape, but a world of frosty silver. It only lasts a short while after the garden opens, but the satsuki azaleas, moss and grass quietly create the true charm of winter.

Kingfisher Visitors
In the morning, Murin-an is covered in a mist that makes for a wholly wintery scene. That green bird we see shining amid the scenery is a kingfisher. We approached the bird as slowly as possible and then let our shutter fly.

A Rest Stop for the Spot-billed Duck
Occasionally, a pair of this duck will flitter by the big red pines in the garden.
This duck species live in Japan all year round. The tip of its bill is characteristically yellow.

The Gardener’s View

Pruning of the evergreens surrounding Murin-an is now finished.
The finished look appears natural and casual, but provides an even clearer and more beautiful view of the Higashiyama Mountains.

Further in, there are Camellia Japonicas starting to bloom on the right side of the waterfall.
The adorable way they pop up here and there is sure to bring a smile to your face.
