THUNBERG'S MEADOWSWEET IN THE POTAGER (ポタジェのユキヤナギ)



In the kitchen garden, Thunberg's meadowsweet is in full bloom now.
It announces us the beginning of spring. 
Temperature has been increasing little by little in March.
Pure white colour of the flowers is a origin of the name in Japanese;
'Yuki-Yanagi' which means 'snow-willow'.

Morning sunlight stains white flowers light pink.
朝日が白い花を淡いピンクに染めます



The flower has five pure white petals and pure yellow stamens.
純白の5枚の花弁と真っ黄色な雄蕊

ポタジェではユキヤナギが今満開です
春の到来を告げる花です
気温は三月に少しずつ上昇しています
この花の純白の色は日本語の植物名の由来です
「白い柳」
