Japanese Flowers and Floral Art
These pictures appeared in a power point presented twice in Bucyrus this past year by Mary Lee Minor.
During a program at the January, 2016 meeting of the Earth, Wind and Flowers Garden Club, Mary Lee brought a power point which emphasized the many gardens, horticultural centers, and flowers viewed while she and her husband Bill visited friends Keiji and Kazuko Nishio in Kawagoe, Japan.
The two week stay took them to an International Rose Show in the Tokyo Dome where competitive classes had been judged. Collections of 10 roses, shrub roses, a flowing walkway of shifting colors, arranged roses in wall pockets, bonsai including roses, hanging baskets and roses grown with annuals in framed displays were featured.
Travel by train took them to Hamasatzu Botanical Gardens where the visit was an entire day. Vertical gardening efforts made use of begonias and sempervirens and other annuals which were massive, and themed. Inside the building were collections of plants from around the world, and an especially well-done Mexican garden. Rose walkways, and other collections could be seen from a small train ride through the grounds. Huge fountains were lined with topiaries.
In Kawagoe City a tour down Penny Candy Lane brought handmade items, gardening efforts, antiques and every variation of sweet potato snacks. Temples also brought landscaping visual; delights.
After an initial explanation of the highlights Mary Lee played a tape with oriental water sounds to accompany the flowers and plants which had their own beauty. She pointed out the fact that orchids were abundant, and the people clearly love blue flowers and especially hydrangeas.
If a group is interested in having this as a program, it is simple, bringing a glimpse of the beauty in Japan with some glimpses over backyard fencing and entrances to homes. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
