Kyodo-no-mori Park, Bubaigawara (March 5th)

Cerasus lannesiana (Kawazu Zakura) on the way to Kyodo-no-mori Park from Koremasa Sta.

We went to Kyodo-no-mori Park in Fuchuu city to see some plum blossoms.
It was Friday, but quite a few older people were there. It was really warm here in Tokyo today, actually it was so hot that we both just wore only T-shirt until the sun was setting.

Erythronium japonicum (Katakuri).

My Prunus mume is flowering at the same time in France. P.mume "Beni-chidori".The flowers are beautiful and the perfume is delicate. I have another one called ""Omoi-no-mama", a double one but to small for flowering now. These trees are not common at all in my country. I have never got fruits from them...

It is pretty amazing that you grow some Prunes mume trees in France. There is a big nice Plum garden in Tokyo. So, we are going to go there in a few weeks.
Here in Tokyo, it will be soon the nice season to go out to the mountains to find some violets, too.
