ROSES IN A TOKYO METROPOLITAN GARDEN. 旧古河庭園。

There is a Tokyo metropolitan garden named Kyu-urukawateien near our house.



It takes 20 minutes from our house by walking.



There are both  a rose garden and a Japanese garden.



A rose.


Looking at the rose bud, There are 4 sepals. 
At first,the two jagged sepals would start to open.
Then two  round sepals would open.


The first two sepals would protect petals from bad insects.
Other two round sepals would cover  the petals softly.


Looking at the stem,you can find the grafting a  European rose to  a Japanese rose.



European roses would not grow in Japan,because of the different weather.


This one is Japanese original rose,called Noibara.


There is a Japanese one in this garden.
There is a stone lantern by the pond.



There is a waterfall too.



This stone work is very famous.
It seems to fall apart,but never collapse.



This stone work is made of  lava stones of Mt.Fuji.




Good by from this garden.


Sharing with Today's Flowers.


Thanks for visiting this post.

  8. 古川庭園、一度行ってみたいと思ってました。春と秋の花の見ごろに行くチャンスが巡ってくれたら嬉しいのですが、中々行けません。レンガ造りの洋館と日本庭園が見事に調和していますね。歩いて20分で行けるとはなんと羨ましい!

  10. Minoru, when we had a house in Denver, we lived within walking distance of the Botanic Garden. Your Japanese Garden reminds me of the garden in Denver (though we didn't have lava stones). I like the formal rose garden, too. I cannot grow roses at my altitude because of the harsh weather. However, I have always loved seeing roses blooming.

  13. こちらもバラ園のポストでしたか。都会のバラ園とは思えないほど閑静なところですね。植込みの間を歩くのもいいですが、庭園が低くなっているのでお屋敷から全体を眺めるのも素敵でしょうね。お茶でも飲みながら。スカーフの観光客はたぶんマレーシアからでしょうか。奈良でも大阪でもよく見かけますが、たいてい明るい女の子たちです。私の家からも歩いて30分くらいのところにバラ園があります。お寺の鬼門の方向に洋風のバラ園。昨年Green Tomatoさんが投稿していたところです。

      こんばんは。こちらの洋館と薔薇園はジョサイア.コンドルが設計し、日本庭園は京都の作庭家、小川治兵衛が設計しました。
       薔薇は上から見るもので落床花壇と言われています。

  14. oh * c'est original de trouver les roses dans ce jardin et ces magnifiques allées de pierres et avec aussi des pierres volcaniques du mont Fudji !
    ici en France les villes de Clermont Ferrand et Le Puy en Velay sont bâtis avec des pierres volcaniques et cela donne une merveilleuse impression lorsque l'on marche sur une allée construites avec ces pierres noires et poreuses ;)
    désolé d'écrire en français *
    merci pour toutes ces belles images qui invitent à venir au Japon !
