Forgive me, I am so sorry , but I couldn't stop myself! I visited the Japanese- Americ Society Alabama's Festival at the Japanese Gardens yesterday, and they had this wonderful pool of carp on display! What a beautiful day it was. The Birmingham Botanical Gardens parking lot was FULL. Apparently everyone in Birmingham wanted to get outside and see the cherry blossoms in bloom and take advantage of the beautiful spring weather. Today, two images from my visit. More to come of course!
