Taura plum grove in Yokosuka City
|I went to a mountain in Taura, Yokosuka City, where there are the most large plum grove in this peninsula. The slope of the mountain was filled with different various kind of plum trees. |
The slope was so steep and long that I was tired and sweated, but stairs were maintained and there were a lot of plum trees around it.
At the highest plaza, I could see the beautiful panorama.
|Flowering was early because it was a mild winter this year. Though the blooming time was finishing, there were various kinds of plum trees such as white, red, single flowers and multi-petal flowers.|
Or, the strong wind in late February might have dispersed flowers.
Though it was too late to enjoy the fragrance of plum blossoms, I could enjoy the fresh air and the beautiful scenery.
