Following the first post in January, I checked the colors I found at Tama River in February.
Record of January Colors Found at Tama River - Clouds at Dusk
I looked back on the post of January and thought that I didn't try to find colors at all. I must have done more. This is why I decided to walk around the Tokyo side and the Kawasaki Side of Tama River near Tamagawa Ohashi Bridge.
It was cloudy and sometimes rainy today, and the sky was a bit bluish. Many ducks were looking for their food on the grass. As the man in orange came with his bicycle into the group, they flew immediately into the river.
Have they started to play over this bush in beige? Why not try going by myself?
As I expected, they were having a rest in the edge. It was like waiting in line for the coming train. Oh, one gray dove is walking in the bottom left while all the other birds are brown ducks.
Then I looked at the right and found these white Seagulls. The one in the center is striking a pose bravely.
Seagulls of this group are standing in order. They must be quite co-operative. Ah, their legs and beaks look red, or rather orange?
I went back from the edge and found this vivid yellow color. I'm not sure what it is called, but it is quite outstanding in winter.
Here are some green bamboo grass. They look so fresh with the background of the bluish gray color.
I had thought that this was Japanese pampas grass, but maybe this is another type of Poaceae plants, right?
These plants and Japanese pampas grass are growing mixedly. But the biggest difference is that Japanese pampas grass lost their downs in winter whereas these plants not.
I googled and found that these plants are called Phragmites in English and Yoshi in Japanese. I categorized Phragmites as Japanese pampas grass in the past posts by mistake...
Anyway, I love this genuine beige color. It's pretty faint and beautiful.
The true Japanese pampas grass in winter is like this. They lost all their downs and looked yellow.
Ohh! I found some Japanese pampas grass with some white downs alive. They are struggling powerfully to survive in severe winter. Well done.
The last photo is made of green, white, yellow and purple. Japanese wild radish has already started to bloom in winter. I look forward to much more colorful flowers at Tama River!
