It was a cloudy day off, but nice and warm for a walk in the hills...AND miraculously, my husband had a day off too! I can't remember the last time that we had a day off together!
So, to "celebrate" we went to Kobe's herb garden.This is the city of Kobe seen from the ropeway that goes up to the Nunobiki Herb Park (altitude 400m). A 10 minute ride.
The Herb Park is up there...with hundreds of different types of flowers and herbs.
My blog "debut"... I'm standing in from of one of the greenhouses next to a "unique sculpture".In the greenhouse...
In the park...
I thought this was interesting...a bit of Pennsylvania in Kobe...
The above "pavilion" was made in the USA..."just like you" my husband said.
So many flowers, so many pictures...I can't choose!
It wasn't overly crowded being a Monday... I did "spy" a group of people from the UK admiring the herb garden, couples having lunch on the grass and park benches and a silly man who kept asking his wife to take a picture of him adding "be sure to get the ropeway gondolas in the picture too!"
We strolled around for about 2 hours. The air was nice and clean compared to what we've been breathing down in the city. But my husband kept looking for an ashtray. He is a walking, talking chimney. His "blog debut" will be coming soon.
