BLUE FLOWERS IN EARLY SPRING (早春の青い花たち)



Crocus, violet, ajuga and muscari are the members of spring blue flowers in our garden.  Violet (Viola mandshurica) and Ajuga decumbens are native plants in Japan, and they grow spontaneously in our garden.  When we weed, they are selected to be left if possible.

In a few days, hyacinth and Vinca major have also started to bloom.  There are lots of blue flowers in our garden now.

  1. Dear Poirot
    Lovely Spring flowers. Your flowers are a bit ahead of us in the UK. It is the first day of Spring here, but we haven't yet got the muscari in bloom. I am looking forward to seeing them in a few weeks time. Enjoy your beautiful flowers.
    Best wishes
    Ellie
