BEGINNING OF RAINY SEASON (梅雨入り)



 The start of the rainy season was announced for the Kyushu region the day before yesterday.  Much rain has fallen and vulnerable herbaceous plants with long thin stalks has fallen or broken here and there.  It's time to cut short such plants.


(九州地方が梅雨入りしたと一昨日発表がありました。たくさん雨が降って草花の長くて細い茎があちこちで倒れたり折れたりしています。短く切り戻す時期です。)


Two plants that suit the rain have become in bloom now.  They are both blue flowers.

The first is sweet flag in the small pool. 

(ひとつは小さな池の花菖蒲


Another one is hydrangea at the entrance.

(もう一つは入口の紫陽花


Raindrop ripples on the small garden fountain tell us that the rainy season has come.

  1. Thank goodness we do not get a rainy season, although some years it can feel like we do. So sad that it breaks your plants but nice that it waters the garden for you.
    Love your blue flag and Hydrangra.

    1. Thanks to much rain, we have a beautiful forest in Japan.
      However, sometimes too much rain jeopardise plants in our garden.

      We have to take the good with the bad:-)
