Burst of color from bulbs next to Joystep

「Joystep」の隣に、たくさんきれいな花が咲いています。春の球根みたいですけれど、晩夏に姿を見せます。

These bright flowers have popped up all around my apartment building. They look like spring bulbs but they bloom in early September, with the petals closing at night. I like how they are next to the Joystep, the ubiquitous Tokyo contraption for turning a sidewalk curb into a ramp.

  1. This is not a spontaneous specie in Italy, I bought few bulbs years ago and I grow them in my small garden in Northern Italy.
    Ciao!
