Azalea festival @ Nezu shrine

Lee and I went to the Nezu shrine a week before last Sunday.
From early April to the last day of the golden week, the azalea festival has been held there.

There are 50 species & 3000 pieces of azaleas. How beautiful!

Hi! It's Lee! I haven't been this blog a while. How you been?

There are many species of azaleas and the timings of full bloom are depends on the species. So you can enjoy various kind of azaleas during the festival. It was around 8:00 AM, but many visiters were enjoying the flowers.

I love this shrine. It show me various scenes at each season.
Please have a look the scene of another season, too.

Hello! Indeed the azalea flowers are so beautiful now.
You used the term "species" however in this case, "variety" seem to be more appropriate, for after all they are all Azalea! In biology, "variety" is the man made
variation of the same species, isn't it?

Thank you very much for pointing out from the biologist viewpoint! Yeah, "50varieties & 3000trees" is appropriate. very good comment! Thank you.
