9th May 2012 – A Week In Red – The Entrance

In Penticton, on the southern shore of Lake Okanagan, there is a Japanese Garden.  At the moment, it is bursting into colour.  There are Spring Snow Crabapple trees, aptly named because the blossoms and petals are falling like snow at the moment; azaleas in various colours, which have flowered; rhododendrons are just about to burst; and Acer trees with their new leaf growth rich and vibrant.

You can enter the garden from various points but the most impressive is this one: a traditional Japanese style entrance, leading to a bridge which runs over a creek, and on into the gardens themselves.

You can’t miss the entrance.  Not only is it big, impressive and of an eye-catching design – it is also RED!
