Scent of the Spring

   Ume blossoms have a few characteristic to other blossoms.
   It is the "Fragrance".

   It will be wrapped in a faint but very sweet fragrance when you walk Ume forest.
   This fragrance has the gentleness that is different from all other flowers.

   When blooming is over, the Ume trees prune most branches.
   Vitality is very a strong tree. Of course they resist cold.

   While, the cherry trees don't prune basically.

   The fragrance of Ume blossoms is "The Spring" itself.
   Ume blossoms has been loved in Japan from the ancient times.

   This is the most famous Ume blossoms Japanese poem (Waka) and an artist in the Far East.

    こちふかばにほひをこせよ梅のはな あるじなしとて春なわすれそ 
     菅原道真 (845-903) : 拾遺和歌集

    If an easterly wind blows, please remember a fragrance, Ume blossoms...
    Even if there is not the master (me), don't forget spring.
Sugawara no Michizane (845-903) : Shūi Wakashū

   If your heart and mind walk in Ume forest, I am glad.

  20. your pictures are powerful and delicate. they could be from the south os Portugal as well, but the rains of the last weeks have either ruined the blossoms or prevented them to sprout. the winter is still on. there's no hint of spring yet

  21. What spectacularly beautiful photographs of the ume blossoms, Ruma. I would so love to see them...perhaps, one of these days, when I win the lottery. In the meantime, I have put the one on my blog header to add spring brightens, temporarily, to replace the roses scherer arts let me use previously. How nice of you two to share your beautiful photographs.

    I will think of you whenever I see you ume on my header!!

    Thank you so much, Ruma.
