Jindai Botanical Garden (February 2nd)

Prunus mume 'Shiro Namba' (白難波)

Today we went to Jindai Botanical Garden to see if any Shibateranthis pinnatifida (Setsubun-sou) flowers bloom yet. In the garden, there were more kinds of plum blossoms starting to bloom than the last time I went there. It was a little too early for the Adonis flowers yet, though... We found a small patch of Shibateranthis pinnatifida (Setsubun-sou) flowers beside a small creek in the garden, and we also happened to see 2 kingfishers flying over the creek. On the way back to the exit, we saw a Japanese green woodpecker, too.

It is so tiny, but it sure has pretty flower.
