Welcome to September everyone! I don’t know about you, but the ‘tembers mark my absolute favorite months of the year. I do love a good winter snow storm, and of course adore the cherry blossoms and other flowers of spring, but nothing compares for me to the hues in the trees combined with the crisp air of autumn. Add in a couple of fantastic holidays, and there’s little the rest of the year can do to compete. So with that in mind I thought I’d kick off the start of the season with a fall photo from Shinjuku Park in Tokyo. This park is a great place to enjoy the fall, offering many trees with a variety of colors, shapes, and textures. The tall trees that make up the lane in this photo are called plane trees, and they come with some of the best autumn leaves around. The plane tree’s leaves not only have a lovely yellow hue during their peak, but because the leaves are huge, once they fall and dry up they are super crunchy and make that perfect seasonal sound when strolling through them. With a plane tree lined lane and plenty of benches to sit beneath them, Shinjuku Park is worth the visit during this time of year.
