Yellow Blooms


Another sign that spring is near.

Flowers are starting to bloom around Shinjuku. This is a flower we call Robai, or Winter Sweet in English. They usually bloom in January or February.

And they also have a fabulous scent that had me sticking my nose in the bloom and drinking it all in!

  4. Yellow blossoms against a blue sky. Beautiful! There's only one problem: if the flowers are appearing, it means hayfever misery is imminent. Oh, help.

  6. What a lovely shot, and a sign of things to come. Although where I live March and April are our snowiest months, so it will be a while until we see anything like this!

  7. I thought I recognized that flower. It's been too warm for ours to bloom this year. You're so right -- the fragrance is lovely -- sweet yet clean.
