Fallen Autumnal tints in Tenryu-ji (Kyoto)

The fallen colorful leaves of maple are quietly piling up on the ground covered with dark green moss.

These brilliant tints in the garden are creating the colorful mosaic of this fading-away season.

Soon the white flakes of the first snow will lightly fly down to this garden to cover the fallen leaves with pale whiteness.

May the Joy and Peace of Christmas be with you now and throughout the new year.

Thank you heartily for your kind comment and your frequent visits to my blog.

In Japan, we experienced that catastrophic natural calamity in this year.

The New Year is the year of Dragon.

In China, Dragon is believed to be the most powerful and auspicious creature which protects Heaven.

Soon we will ring out the old year and ring in the new year.

Very best wishes for the New Year.
