A FREESIA SEASON IN HACHIJO ISLAND.

      We went to Hachijo island for 2 days. It takes 50 minutes from Tokyo by airplane.

 八丈島でレンタカーを借りたら、品川ナンバーでした。 ここは東京都です。

we arranged them in our house. 妻が生けました。


We went to a botanical garden. At first we went to a green house.

  15. Excellent and very beautiful sequence. I like the strength of your black and white photos, but my favourite is the rough lava shore with the contrasting brightness of the flowers forcing their way through.

  35. Hi Minoru,
    This lava seashore is really majestic.It's amazing the way plants can adapt to such conditions.
    I like the idea of visiting freesia fields........do the have a perfume? Last week I bought a bunch at a flower stall but I've noticed in recent years that they have lost their wonderful smell.

    Best wishes,
    Ruby

  42. 八丈島は流刑の島だったんですね。黒々とした岩場の海岸が印象的です。コケリンドウは空に向かって笑っていて可愛い!奥様の春の寄せ植えも素敵。家の中は奥様の愛情とフリージアの香りに包まれていたでしょうね。

      こんばんは。ありがとうございます。 もう一つ、亭主の思いやりにも、包まれています。 探検家、近藤重蔵の息子、近藤富蔵が有名な流刑人です。 「八丈島実記」 という本を書き、島の発展に大いに尽くしました。

  45. フリージアは好きな花の一つです。 香りがすごくいい! 姿も可愛くないですか? 奥様の生け花も立派ですね。 八丈島には東京からだとどのくらい時間かかりますか? 面白そうです。 お二人で仲良く旅行出来て、ほんとにラッキーだなーって思います。

      こんばんは。ありがとうございます。よい香りがまだ、家の中で漂ってます。 島へは、飛行機で50分です。 団体客が多いせいか、案内標識も少なく、借りた車にはカーナビの付いていませんでした。
      人が少ないので、良かったです。

  46. I love fresias - we had them in my parents house quite often. They also smell so good!

    But I also like the flowers you found by the lava shore - and also all these picture of the shore, too. It's such a good contrast, the rough terrain vs. the pretty, delicate flowers!
