満開のツツジ / Azaleas in full bloom


あしかがフラワーパークに向かったときに思い出したのが、館林にあるつつじが岡公園だった。2003年に館林を訪れた際に取材先の方に教えていただき、取材の翌週くらいに、樹齢800年などと言われているヤマツツジを見に行っていた。

個人的には藤の花よりツツジの方が好き。人が植えたものだとしても、自立して場合によってはワイルドに育つから。で、今回は諦めていたけのだけれども、あしかがフラワーパークにもツツジはたくさんあった。

鮮やかな赤は、陽光の下でさらにギラギラと輝いていた。

On my way to the Ashikaga Flower Park, I remembered I had visited the Tsutsujigaoka Park in Tatebayashi City in Gunma prefecture. I wrote an article about a school in Tatebayashi in 2003, and one of the teachers there told me about the park. I visited the park one or two weeks after that and enjoyed the azalea flowers in full bloom. The park had very old azalea trees which were 800 hundred or so years old.

I like azaleas more than wisteria. Both were planted by men but the former stood by themselves and sometimes they look wilder. I didn't expect to see azalea flowers in the Ashikaga Flower Park but they had plenty of them. They looked really nice.

Their vivid red was glaring under the harsh sunlight.
