AN AZALEA GARDEN IN A SHRINE.  根津神社

There is a famous azalea garden in Nezu shrine.
It takes about 15 minutes from our house by car.



An azalea garden.



It was Saturday , many people were there.



The azalea blossoms were in full bloom.



This five leaf azalea is a symbol plant for Princess Aiko.

It was a cloudy day.

  1. This Azalea Gardens is a very pretty sight in Spring. All the colourful shrubs being planted together in a myriad of colours make a beautiful painting. I could spend many hours sitting there on the bench just to relax and read a good book.

    I am amazed at nature's wonders to see the brown sticky thing that covered to protect the azalea's buds from insects. I guess these flowers are fragrant and has some sweetness inside. Thanks for sharing Minaru-San.

  6. 子供のころに家の庭にあるツツジの花のガクをとって蜜を吸ったことを覚えています。奈良の我が家では淡いピンクの雲仙ツツジが満開。神社にこんな素敵なツツジ園があるのですね。このツツジ園は神戸の相楽園に似ている気がしますが、神戸のは古い洋館のある公園です。私の五月初ポストは山ツツジです。
