Blossom Tree by the Water Wheel

September 7, 2013

I’ve been waiting for this blossom tree to come out – as in the last few years I’ve missed it in full bloom, being a little too late to take photos of it. But this year, I’ve been checking on it each week to see how far away the blossom was. The water wheel used to operate but hasn’t done so since the earthquakes.

    Looks like the main shaft for the water wheel lost its housing during the earthquake. Just curious if the folks at Steam Scene know about this water wheel as they would probably have access to lots of old parts, even old housings that can be made to fit. It might be an idea to contact them and send a pic too as it couldn’t hurt, and besides these guy would probably enjoy working on old stuff like this, and visitors here would be equally happy to see it working again too.

    Besides the tip, beautiful picture — Definitely looks like Spring has arrived!
