Jindai Botanical Garden (March 21st)

Cerasus x kanzakura "Oh-kanzakura" (Oo-kan-zakura).

Today we were first going to Takao to see if any spring flowers were growing yet, but it was not sunny and the wind was really strong since yesterday, so we ended up going to Jindai Botanical Garden in Chofu. Some of the cherries were already blooming there. We found the pretty nice patch of Erythronium japonicum (Katakuri), too.


Anemone pseudoaltaica (Kikuzaki Ichige).
They have purple ones like this in this garden. You can see something like this originally at the snowy area such as the Touhoku regions and Niigata prefecture, etc.

Magnolia kobus (Kobushi).
It smells nice and sweet.
