A WILD FLOWER GARDEN IN TOKYO.

                         I  went to a wild flower garden for the first time in this year.

                             今年、初めて白金台の自然教育園に行きました。



The season of fresh green now. 新緑が美しいです。



Wind flowers. 二輪草です。

Mitugashiwa. ミツガシワです。

土佐、山内家の家紋も丸に「三つ柏」です。それをアレンジして生まれたのが、
家来、岩崎弥太郎の三菱のマークと言われてます。

Ikariso. イカリソウです。


Rashomonkazura. 羅生門葛です。


Ebine.(orchid family) エビネです。


A pond.


Great egret. ダイサギです。


Dusky thrush. ツグミです。


Grey heron. I have not enough time to fix the shutter speed.

アオサギが飛んで来ましたが、シャッターを合わせる時間が有りませんでした。


In a moment,this bird went far away.

一瞬後には、遥遠くまで行ってしまいました。

  10. やはり行ってみたいと思える場所ですね。アオサギの飛んで行く写真はかっこいいです。シャッターを合わせる時間がなかったそうですけど、かなりの腕前ですよ。鳥の名前とか、後で調べるのですか?専門家とか?ツグミというのは、あのような鳥なんですね。日本ドラマのMother で、他人の子供連れて逃げる時に、新しい名前として、ツグミと付けていたように覚えています。

      こんにちは。コメントありがとうございます。ここに載せた鳥の写真は、どこでも居るような鳥です。
      ツグミは渡り鳥で、夏にはいなくなるので、鳴き声が聞こえなくなるので、「ツグミ」と名付けたという説があります。
       女の子に「愛美」と書いて「つぐみ」と読ませる事が有るそうですが、鳥の名前とは関係無いと思います。

  14. こんばんは
    自然教育園の緑が綺麗な季節になりましたね。ダイサギやアオサギは、私が小学生の頃、同級生たちと塀の隙間から無料侵入して、遊んでた時代にはいなかったので、彼らの登場は最近のことだと思います。自然教育園が、野鳥にとって過ごしやすい環境に変化してきたと思うと嬉しい出来事です。

  15. Lovely park Minoru -- and that is a perfect way to describe Spring "the season of fresh green." And your pictures show that fresh green beautifully. I love buttercups and birds too... this post is filled with joy!

  18. 自然が一杯のリフレッシュできそうな場所ですね。前回のウラシマソウもめずらしい植物だとおもいましたが、イカリソウも見た事がないですが、きれいな花ですね。三菱のマークが、山内家の三つ柏からきたと知り,なるほどと思いました。
    Have a nice week!

      こんばんは。コメントありがとうございます。 イカリソウは距が4つ出ていまして、北前船などの和船も4本爪の錨を使ってました。 それでイカリソウと名付けられたそうです。
       丸に三つ柏は、ベンツのマークにも似ていて不思議です。

  24. Lovely spring flowers! I like your macros of the tiny flowers. Anemones make such delightful sheets of flowers and foliage. Your Egret shot is wonderful, showing the S-curve of the neck.

  25. 風薫る季節、新緑が陽の中で煌めく季節ですね。今日はあいにくの雨、少し肌寒いです。いつも思うのですが、東京には公園がたくさんありますね。つぐみちゃん、可愛い~! 三菱紋のいわれ、みのる様の雑学、博学にいつも学ばせていただいています。

      こんばんは。 お褒めいただきありがとうございます。 元大名の上屋敷が公園になっていることもあります。 旧岩崎庭園という都立公園もあります。我が家の住んでいる所も、旧三菱村と言われました。

  26. こんにちは。三つ柏、羅生門葛、イカリソウ、きれいな花ですね。とっても素敵です。
    エビネは我が家の庭にも咲いていますが、ひっそり咲くので、うっかりすると見過ごしてしまいそうになります。たまにはMinoruさまのようにしっかり見つめてあげないとかわいそうですね。反省です。

  27. What a beautiful blog you have, Minoru-san! You are such a talented photograph. As someone who knows only the busy crowded side of Tokyo, I'm delighted to discover such a peaceful beautiful place exists in this city. I must absolutely visit it on my next trip. (I have come here from Nipponnin's blog).
