Roses are Red…Violets are Blue
I recently visited the Tsurumai Park south of Nagoya to enjoy the Rose festival. The park has about 2000 trees of roses and for rose flower enthusiasts, I reckon, it was heaven on earth. I have never been the biggest fan of roses, as I opted for other floral varieties, but having spent that day amongst these beautiful flowers I can understand why they are so loved. When you look at these roses up close their petals are just like silky lace. In spite of the possibility of having hay fever (yet again!) I couldn’t help myself – I had to dip my face into some of the varieties that were so lovely! and the perfume…so subtle. I thought I’d share some of the many varieties I saw that day. Do enjoy…
And of course there were other interesting features of the park as well.
It was a wonderful day spent at the park. When I thought of Japan in the past, varieties of flowers would not come to mind. I came across the Floral Information and look forward to enjoying the monthly floral festivals this city has to offer.
