I came to Tamagawadai Park to find how the season is changing from summer to autumn. After dropping in at the riverside of Tama River for Lycoris radiata, I am now standing at the entrance of the park.
When I visited the park this June, it was literally full of Hydrangea. What kind of flowers can I see here today? I'm very curious.
The path inside the park runs like this.
Bush clover was growing, which is one of the seven autumn flowers in Japan.
The detail was like this.
I found some trees of Crape myrtle. But most of them are about to lose their flowers.
Half a month ago, Crape myrtle was fully blooming. Maybe another one week is enough to end its season.
Hibiscus mutabilis was not that blooming much. It seems to need more time to fully-bloom here.
I found Patrinia scabiosifolia. This is also one of seven autumn flowers in Japan. The yellow color looks interesting to me.
Cosmos sulphureus was blooming in groups. I have seen it often, but it is maybe the first time to appear in this blog.
This was impressive. Colchicum autumnale
looked quite cute with its sharp purple petals.
It was Clematis terniflora which was blooming in a sharp slope. The petals were tiny, but were pretty outstanding with its white color in the shade.
Of course, I found Lycoris radiata, too. The interesting fact here is that Lycoris radiata often grows inside the bushes of Hydrangea. This red flower really likes to grow with other flowers.
The most appealing flower here in September is this flower - Scilla scilloides. They were blooming near Clematis terniflora. Even though it was almost the same in size, its detailed shape and faint purple color were enough to take my breath away.
I approached and shooted it again. Simply great. I will be here again in the midst of autumn again.
