亀清の庭及び森の杏: 新着情報 Flower News from Kamesei’s Garden and Mori “Apricot Village”


客間「千歳」の坪庭にChristmas Rose

亀清の渡り廊下の坪庭にクリスマスロースがこんなに可愛いく咲いてきました。紫も白もあって、上品な綺麗さ。

そして、私の森「杏の里」のコネから新着情報:杏の枝のつぼみがほんの少し開き始まったそうです。地元のおばあさん情報では、3月28日・29日の週末から花見が出来るそうです。杏祭り実態はその次の週末から始まる予定なので偉い込みます。空いている内に、早目に行った方が勝ちかもしれません。(ちなみに、亀清はまだ空き部屋があるので宿泊は宜しくお願いします。)

In the “tsubo” pocket gardens off our “watari-roka” passageway, the Christmas Rose plants are starting to fully bloom. They have a subtle, unpretentious charm to their flower — it perfectly matches the relaxing mood of our inn.

In other flower news, the Apricot Village in Mori on the other side of town is gearing up for the Apricot Festival, scheduled to take place from 04-April to 17-April. However, I just heard from my Mori “connection” that the buds on the branches are already starting to open. That’s right — Mori’s apricot blossoms will be in peak form for viewing about a week ahead of their official festival. March 28th, 29th weekend should be perfect, and the crowds won’t start until the weekend after! (For anyone wishing to stay the night, we still have rooms available the weekend of the 28th!)
