雨の日は、昼まで琉球アサガオが咲いています。いっぱいです。

For four years, this Okinawa morning glory returns each year. While the annual Edo morning glories are just starting to climb, the Okinawa morning glory is already blooming and extending its reach to all corners of the narrow balcony.

昼に花園神社で、亡くなってしまった人に静かに祈りました。大事な人でした。天気は寒くて、空が青かったです。

 

A mid-day visit to Hanazono shrine in Shinjuku to say a silent prayer for Ros. RIP. Blue sky on a chilly winter day.

Wilted morning glory in afternoon sunshine

朝早くに、琉球アサガオの濃い青色の花がたくさん咲いています。昼には、しおれて花がピンクになります。これはフィルムの写真です。

Early in the day, this Okinawa morning glory is a deep blue with lots of large blooms. I like how by afternoon, the flowers turn pink as they wilt.
