NOBLE SCALLOPS IN THE GARDEN (庭のヒオウギガイ)

There are noble scallops (Mimachlamys nobilis) for decorating bricks of the central raised bed in our garden.

A year ago, we brought back many scallops discarded at the nearby fishing port.  Colours of the scallops include yellow, orange, red, pink, purple and white.  They look dark and dull when they are dry, however, once they are wet, they become vividly colored.

Colorful scallops add colour in  a desolate wintry garden.


In a couple of months muscari flowers in the bed.  

Well grown foxgloves are waiting for spring in the bed.
