JAPANESQUE PEONY (日本風のピオニー)


The earliest variety of peony is in full bloom now.


(シャクヤクの一番早咲きの品種が満開です。)



On 29th April, the peony 'Daifuki' began to flower.  This dark pink variety flowers earliest every year.

(4月29日に「大富貴」は咲き始めました。この濃いピンクの花が毎年一番に咲きます。)


In three days, five flowers are in bloom one after another. 

(3日ほどで、5つの花が次々と咲いてきました。)


Next day, it was rainy all day.  I used a Japanese umbrella to cover plants against rain.   Rain water was filled in the flowers and it bends the stalks and damages flowers.  This umbrella is a Japanese traditional coarse oilpaper umbrella (Ban-gasa).  It looks very Japanesque, doesn't it?

(次の日は一日中雨でした。雨から守るために傘を使います。雨水は花のなかに充満して花茎を曲げて花を傷めてしまいますこの傘は日本の伝統的な番傘です。とても日本風でしょう?)






On 4th May, weather got better, and the umbrella was removed. The flowers had became in full bloom.  What a wonderful colour it is! 

(5月4日、お天気は回復し、傘をしまいました。花は満開になっています。なんと素晴らしい色でしょう!)
