Hitachi Seaside Park in April 2014
Sakura is not the only flowers Japan has in early spring. Many other flowers start blooming as soon as the weather gets warmer. As if living the local culture, everyone must follow the queue, so is flower. Sakura is the first in blooming line, followed by Nemophila, Wisteria, Hydrangea and the list is getting longer.
We decided to go directly to nemophila hills to get better chance of pictures taking without so many people. Well, of course everybody else had the same thought. There were many people but it wasn’t as crowded as we thought it would be just yet. It was stunning beyond the words I could every describe. It was all blue as far as eyes could see up on the hill. As if the sky touched the hills. Although it looked so gorgeous to my eyes, many said that nemophila this year was not as beautiful as last year. The coldest winter ruined many nemophila’s roots. That’s the reason we could still see the ground beneath the flowers.
Canola flowers could be found down the hills giving a nice contrast colour to the nemophila carpet. It’s nothing but beautiful as far as the eyes can see, like blue and yellow carpets made by mother nature.
Other flowers such as tulips are located at the front side of the park. They are also beautiful and have their own charm. There were not many so many of them back then but may be more have bloomed now. Be careful with the bees flying around the flowers.
