Japan is famous for its springtime displays, and rightly so – the cherry and peach and plum trees errupt into a glorious riot of fluffy pink and white blossoms that rain down like heavenly snow.
But the Japanese autumn is not without its own charms. The ginko trees are my particular favourite, filling the landscape with a blaze of gold leaves. In fact, I love them so much that I penned the haiku that I’m sharing for this week’s Poetry Friday celebration.
And by the way, thank you all so much for helping me host last week’s roundup, it was lovely to “meet” everyone!

Covers all the land in gold
Autumn’s parting gift
Have a golden weekend, friends, wherever in the world you are!
