It’s rose season! Actually, just about everything is in bloom. But the roses are my favorite. Here are too many photos of my favorite homes and gardens in my neighborhood.

Strangely, most of the roses here don’t have much in the way of scent. It doesn’t matter though – for the past two weeks, Chikugo (and Kurogi, where I teach) has smelled amazing. I don’t know what flower is responsible for the terrific smells that follow you everywhere, or if it’s more than one, but you can’t take ten steps without getting a delicious whiff of something sweet and flowery. Heavenly.

    Never too many! Wonderful to be surrounded by flowers and plants. Even more wonderful to engage more than one sense — lifts the spirits to get a whiff from somewhere of sweet naturelike smells.

      Glad you liked them! It really is a lovely time to be in Japan right now. 🙂
