Flowers in English

One thing I love about living in Japan is that there are many flowers here and there.  It is easy to see many different kinds of flowers throughout the year just walking around the neighborhood. In my hometown in Florida, it is different. People like flowers in potted plants, and yards full of neatly trimmed grass. In Japan, I see many flowers growing more wildly here and there and many more types. Since the area around Japanese houses is much smaller, people tend to have flowers, plants and trees rather than grass. Despite the fact that there are so many buildings crowded together, there is still so much green around!  Here are some pictures of flowers that I have taken here and there. It is kind of a hobby for me!

How about you? What kind of flowers do you like? Do you have flowers around your house?

日本に住む好きな事の一つは、あちこちで沢山の花がみえる事です。近所を散歩して回っていると、年中、色々な種類の花を簡単に見れる。
フロリダの実家ではちょっと違います。アメリカ人はきれいに刈りそろえられた草(芝)と鉢植えの方が好きみたい。
日本では花があちこちで野性的に育っています。日本は家の周りが狭いので芝よりも花や植物や植木を育てる傾向があります。
ビルが沢山群がっているのに自然が多い!私の近所に咲く色々な花の写真を見てください。私の趣味の一つです!
