Quick Cleanse

Aging, if nothing else, has made rising early a common habit, and I was able to take advantage of that by slipping off to a nearby park and being blessed by the sanitizing surroundings.

Yakushiike Park in Machida is not far from my home, so I got on my bike in the predawn hours and headed off to take some shots.

The park is famous for its flowers throughout the seasons, and I consider it the best place to see wisteria in bloom in our local area.

With past experience having taught me that the park is staffed by officious jobsworths, I needed to get in, take photos and get out by 6 a.m.

Unfortunately, I was still a little too early to catch the wisteria in their splendor, but fortunately that meant I could focus on other areas of beauty and it gives me another chance to go back again later this week.
