Pine tree, Japanese Friendship Garden, Phoenix, Arizona

hidden from all eyes
one snowflake pierced by needles
of the ancient pine

~~ ~~ ~~

Imagine snow nestling among the needles.

  1. I love this photo. I’m also imagining a Japanese garden in the middle of Arizona, but to throw the idea of snow on top of
    that is almost sinful. (But I get what you’re saying) You take such lovely images, MMT.

  2. I will be checking this place out on my next visit. Looks very interesting.

  3. It is so nice to see an evergreen in the hot desert, the green needles adding a hint of cooling to a very hot land. Imagine a pine covered in snow in th Valley of the Sun…

    Japanese gardens are always a place that one wants to just stay and never leave. Beautiful!
