HYDRANGEAS IN HAKUSAN SHRINE.

 We visited Hakusan shrine to see hydrangeas in the precinct.
It takes about 10 minutes to go to Hakusan shrine from our house.

我が家から車で10分、地下鉄で2駅の、白山神社へ行きました。

一言に、紫と言っても、京都と東京では、色に違いがあります。

There were grey herons in this park.

  1. The flowers are very pretty and vibrant when viewed so close up. I like the Gardenia and purple ones.
    Those herons are very elegant looking birds. During the Winter each year, we see lots of foreign birds flying south to my country and they resemble herons & storks. I guess they flew south from China and Japan to enjoy our warm climate.

  11. こんばんわ。
    やはりアジサイは神社とかお寺に咲いてるのが似合うような気がします。色とりどりですね。
    京紫系、江戸紫系の紫があるとは始めて知りました。とんでるアオサギ、ナイスキャッチですね!

      こんばんは。 この神社はすぐ近くにありますが、初めて行きました。「紫の上」や「あかねさす、紫野ゆき、、、」の紫はどんな色でしたのでしょうか。 アオサギは木にとまっているのを見ていたら偶然見、やってきました。運が良かったです。

  21. 散歩によさそうなところですね。きれいです。アジサイの花は近くで見ると、かなりおもしろいですね。 もう梅雨に入ってますか? ご夫婦で出かけたりと仲が良くて、素晴らしい事だと思います。 私たちも経済的に余裕があれば、引退して、こういう風に2人で旅をしたいです。 いつになるやら、、、ためいきです。

  26. Dear Minouru,

    first of all I have to say sorry that I didn't have the time to visit your blog for some time now, the time bevor the school year ends here is quite busy.

    I like Japanese gardens and your pictures reinforce this oppinion: great macro shots and beautiful scenery!

    Have a nice day!

  27. 地域ごとにアジサイや花菖蒲の名所があり、私たちは幸せですね。赤紫と青紫で京、江戸の違いがあること初めて知りました。私も紫陽花の花の写真たくさん撮りましたが、何しろ忙しくて(月半分は朝から夕まで2歳孫の子守です)まだ整理できていません。ポストもなんとか月2回ゆっくりでも着実にやってます。なかなか訪問が追いつかずにごめんなさいね。訪問できた時はまとめて拝見しています。

      こんにちは。 嬉しい忙しさですね。 私どもは末っ子同士の結婚でして。両親の介護は卒業しました。息子は結婚しましたが、子供はまだで、のんびりした毎日です。 と書くと、何もストレスが無いかの様に思われますが、中々、人生はそんなに甘いものではありません。
