Tree Flowers from City park;

My friend and I went to our city park to see newly opened Zoo there on 17th. I wish to save the pictures for Eileen's meme later :-)  So, let me post a couple of tree flowers and tulips today.

*Peony, Rhododendron and Double Cherry*



Again, I found the name differences between Japanese and English so interesting. We call this type "八重桜" which means "eight・layered・cherry".  Eight just implies 'many'; I remember thinking this type has petal with 8 layers when young :-)  And checking the English name, I thought there are more than 'double' petal, haha.


*Entrance and the Turips*

Dearest Miyako,
A visit to you is like entering a botanical garden; starting with the beautiful header.
Your photos make me wish I could be transferred to your area and admire it in person!
But thanks for sharing with us. Crows look lovely against those flowers.
Hugs and love to my Japanese friend.

Dear Miyako,
What a beautiful park. I love the pictures and the flowers are gorgeous. Hope you're having a lovely Sunday!

Hannah said...

Dear Miyako, your flowers are so lovely, I love the double or 8-layered cherry blossoms, so elegant! And the color is so pretty too. I was shocked to see flower buds coming along on my tree peonies, I've never seen them this early. The tulips are lovely too, and the white sculptures make a nice back drop. I haven't seen tulips grown in spirals before either. Hugs from the PNW, Hannah

Visiting you from Normandy, France today via Mosaic Monday. Your photograph collages are beautiful, I love the peonies.
Have a great week.

Wow, the park is in full blossom! What delightful sceneries!
I think the difference between Japanese and English names for yae-zakura is very interesting, too! Somehow I connected yae-zakura with "smile," because the name reminds me of yae-ba :-)
Tulip is one of my favorite flowers. They are so pretty!

Have a wonderful new week, Miyako san xoxo

This is a beautiful zoo with the landscaping they've done. I'll want to see your photos of the animals too so will try to remember to come back when you link with Eileen.
It's interesting to see so many tulips in pots, perhaps they will change the flowers when the tulips are finished.
Thanks for linking to Mosaic Monday Miyako.

Donna said...

Your zoo has a gorgeous floral display in so many areas....

Sallie (FullTime-Life) said...

The gardens are absolutely beautiful. And all the pink flowers (whether you call them double or eight petaled ;>)) are simply gorgeous. I love the way you put the pinks all together. Made me smile. I would love to visit this beautiful zoo and garden.

What a beautiful park! Peonies are rare flowers here in India.

Mari said...

"many layeyed" cherry is so beautiful and all the other flowers too. It must feel heavenly in Japan every spring...blossoms are everywhere.

Andrea Priebe said...

There seems to be no end of beauty in your world. Perhaps your warm personality draws it to you. Beautiful pictures, Orchid ... you certainly are blessed.

Hello Miyako, I'm really impressed with those beautiful displays of flowers. Quite breathtaking to see, your photos are lovely. I too am intrigued by the '8 layer' name! The tulip display is wonderful as well. I hope you and your husband are keeping in good health. Thank you for this pretty post :D)
