This is Genpei Kazura which came from my elder sister as container-grow plant at first last year.

But AyeYai forgot to water this plant, so it was barely alive.

#009 Sugar peas

I happened to find out a flower of the sugar peas this morning.

It's first time to see it.

I can see a few insect at this time of day, but I think it's not enough to pollinate the flower.

Haru no Awayuki (A light snowfall in sprig)

When I got up the morning.

There was a lot of snowfall on our garden.
Here is the snowfall one month ago.

We coll it a light snowfall in spring.

But we say it Haru no Awayuki in Japanese.
Haru(春) means Spring, Awa(淡) means light or (泡) means bubble and Yuki(雪) means Snow.
The following are landscapes this evening at pm 6:00.

The snowfall disappear like bubbles.

It's typical climate on this period.
