Back to Shinjuku Gyoen to check out what’s growing now in July 2009. First a gallery of photos, then some highlights. It is freaking hot and humid at this time.

I have so many pictures to load that I sometimes wonder why I’m doing this, starting yet another blog to keep up with. These pictures are on my facebook page but I can’t quite write the narrative on FB that I can do here. Endlessly go blah blah blah, y’know? Here I can link website to website from a blog versus my “private” photo pages on facebook. Plus there are so many mushroom photo websites that I thought I’d join the damn club and add more mushroom traffic to the world wide web. Ironically, the WWW is compared to mycelium in Paul Stamets talk on TED. But like I said before, this blog won’t be all about mushrooms, though right now it does feel that way. Anyhow, in Tokyo, we were living in a nabe called Otsuka. There is a fantastic huge park just a few miles walk away called Koishikawa Botanical Gardens, of Tokyo University. I go there a few times and the time I took the following photos, I was totally ravaged by mosquitoes. They would just, like, swarm all over the moment I stopped to take a photo. It was brutal, I was so unprepared, so a lot of these photos were taken under the attack of blood-thirsty mosquitoes. Keep that in mind.
