Close-up – pretty in pink & white

While preparing a post about my short trip to Karatsu 唐津 here is the promised second flower post – close-ups

raindrop focus the light to pearls in white and rosé

the beauty of fallen leaves, glowing from within

somebody arranged single blossoms of camellia 椿 along the way

in between a blue eyed cocotte crossed my path

now that the early spring of plum blossoms and the high spring of cherry is over I am looking for the fruits of their effort and the next bloom – azalee 躑躅, rhodora  (there are different kinds, I just choose on of the possible japanese names) and chestnut

Though cool the breeze athwart the trees,
I see some bathers in the stream.
But for their sight in this twilight,
Spring is the season it would seem.
