But we feel the coming of Spring every where.

  1. 安全ベルトをしっかりつけてられますが、風は冷たかったでしょうね。ご苦労様です!

    浜離宮の菜の花が満開なのですか。驚きました。3月に東京に行く予定ですので、浜離宮にも寄ってみようかと思ってましたが、もう菜の花は咲いてないかもしれませんね。先日蠟梅の写真を撮ってる時に、隣におられた男性が中の花びらが赤いのは和蠟梅だと教えてくれました。雪はすっかりとけているのですね。

      こんばんは。ありがとうございます。 日陰では雪はまだ沢山残っています。また、寒くなりそうです。
       ロウバイは中が赤いのはロウバイ、中まで黄色いのはソシンロウバイ(素心蝋梅)と呼びます。和蝋梅とは普通、言いません。

  19. Spring! It will be a long time before Spring reaches Alberta, Canada, but we are already dreaming of it. Your photos are so beautiful, especially the flowers, birds, and Shioirinoike pond.

  22. 10年前に、浜離宮で何度か着物の撮影をしたことがあるので、とても懐かしくなりました。
    お花の写真もビルの窓拭きのゴンドラもみんな、外は寒いけれど、Minoruさんの日常のワンシーンがとても温かいです。

      こんばんは。ありがとうございます。何もネタがない時に行く浜離宮です。 まさか、梅が満開だとは思っていませんでした。
       もう少し暖かくなると、一本の梅に紅梅と白梅が咲く、「思いのまま」という梅がここで見られます。
