    And, a few scenes from the banquet, where the Hardcastles showed they understood what Halloween is about.

    The star of the show was Henry's Showa. She just keeps getting bigger and friendlier. At about 88cm, she is a monster, and Henry has posted a good shot of her above. However, I think most visitors will remember her more like in these shots... following folks passing her tank with her head breaking the surface, ready for hand feeding. It was as if she was saying: 'enough with this fasting!'

    The gardens are the best example of large scale Japanese garden design in Florida, but not in the same league as the leading gardens in more northerly climes, and certainly not those on the west coast. However, the basic structure is in place and the concepts are sound. The challenge comes in the care and maintenance, the relative newness of the garden and the adaptation of fast-growing tropical and subtropical landscape material. In particular spots, the design is effective and evocative. The use of rushing water, quite foreign to Florida, is very well done. A few scenes:

    This held special interest. It is a single rock about 4.5 feet in diameter on which numerous plants are being trained and trimmed to simulate an entire mountain scene. Additional plantings will be added over time... the next 30 years or so.

    Friday evening Lester Berkow hosted a casual dinner event at his home. He has beautiful koi. When someone asked how he kept each so perfect, he replied that all that failed were sent to live in the lake at the Morikami.

    I think we found some of his cast-offs, together with tilapia and turtles galore.

    My koi photos did not come out too well, but I will leave you with a gal belonging to John Melz, a member of the Orlando contingent, who picked up the Most Unique award for his Sanke Goshiki, a crowd pleaser every time she is shown.
