VISITING GARDENS IN HOKKAIDO. 1/2

We visited gardens in Hokkaido. It was early spring even now in Hokkaido.

We first visited Rokkano Mori garden at Obihiro.

A small stream with Ezono-Ryuukinka flowers both banks.

  5. Minoru, I have never seen so much Trillium in one place, and it is just beautiful.
    We have just a few of them in our front garden. Some are white and some are red.

    I especially love the Shirane-Aoi flower.

    Thank you so much for always sharing such beautiful photographs here.

  6. こんにちは、蝦夷の立金花の群生と小川が綺麗ですね。白樺の並木も美しいし、こういうところを散歩すると気持ちがいいでしょうね。 六花の森というと旭川-富良野-十勝から続く北海道ガーデン街道として旅行会社が売出し中ですが、この景色だと訪問客も多そうですね。どの花も綺麗ですが、雪餅草が可憐です。

       こんばんは。十勝、帯広方面は長い間、行って無かったので、この方面を選びました。
      山野草が多く、園芸種の花が少なかったので楽しめました。
       雪餅草はとても可憐でした。

  7. It's interesting to me that so many of your flowers are what we have growing wild here in northern Minnesota in the springtime, too!
