Spring Flowers in Japan

Hello there! Long time no see! How have you been so far? I am sorry that I hadn’t posted anything on my blog for a while. Now, I have returned!

In Japan we are in the mid spring and I would love to show you what kinds of flowers we can see in this season.

A couple of weeks ago, I went into my neighborhood and took some photos of these flowers called Renge in Japanese.

I love these tiny flowers because they are my favorite color purple! They bloom in rice fields.

When I was a little girl, I used to make crowns or necklaces with these flowers with my childhood friends.

Look at the center of the photo! Can you see a bee?

The bee seemed to be busy to gather honey from the Renge flowers.

What kinds of flowers can you see in your area where you live now?

I will post other flowers for spring some time soon! So, stay tuned!!

Thanks for taking a look at my blog post! See you around!

    Thanks for sharing, Yumi. Our vetch hasn’t even started growing here in MI. The flowers we do have are tulips, daffodils, narcissus, hyacinth, grape hyacinth, crocus (all bulb flowers). Our grass is just beginning to turn green and the trees are just starting to get their leaves. So, we have a lot to look forward to once the weather warms up and stays warm.
    Take care and keep on painting!!!

      Hi, Emilie

      I miss Michigan a lot! This year is my first time to spend this season in Japan in nine years! I had always missed the Renge flowers because I had been in the States. I want to enjoy the flowers in Japan this year.

      I hope you will have a great spring this year!

      Yes, I am keeping painting!!
