One morning last week I went for a quiet walk with friends through the Japanese Tea Garden in the Ft. Worth Botanical Garden.

@Linerberry: Thanks. I was actually surprised to find this scenery so close to home. I thought I would need to go to somewhere more exciting for good fall colors.

The colours are glorious..very nicely composed shot with the reflections. Hope you had a nice cup of tea while you were there!
