JGarden Description:A nunnery that sits on a heavily forested site and against a sloping hillside. A waterfull; small pond; clipped azaleas; camellias; maples; cherries; known for its fall color. 




In the shadow of the rocks
The pond water
Glows with the color
Of Andromeda flowers.
Must these fall?
