Signs of the spring Ⅱ
Edible ume blossoms are cultivated.
Therefore there is ume forest (Bai-rin) in each place.
At Odawara-shi, Kanagawa Prefecture, Soga bai-rin are very famous. More than 35,000 of them are cultivated. Now Soga is almost in full bloom.
Here is Karatsu, Saga Prefecture.
These ume blossoms were planted for admiration.
Hands having a camera are still numb by cold.
However, there is a premonition of the spring here.
