RED LYCORIS FOLLOWS (赤いリコリスが続きます)


Red lycoris (Lycoris radiata) usually flowers at autumnal equinox in our area, and it's called equinoctial flower.  However, some of lycoris flowers much earlier than that, especially in our garden.  It's begun to flower here and there.
And white and yellow flowers of lycoris is going to bloom in a week.

赤いヒガンバナはこの辺りでは普通彼岸のころに咲き、ヒガンバナと呼ばれますが、
一部のヒガンバナはそれよりずっと早く咲きます. 
すでにあちこちで咲き始めています.
そして、白や黄色のリコリスも一週間ほどで咲きそうです.


Under the plum tree, it flowers with Liriope muscari, which bear spikes with a number of small lavender-colour flowers.
