大樹の下で

2015.4.16  竹林便り 

連日の雨もようやく一休み お花見日和は少ないけれど

生まれたてのタケノコたちは ウキウキしているかもしれません 

この時期に花開く山吹を見に 松尾大社を訪れると

駐車場の隅っこの ケヤキの木の株元に 春色をそえるツツジの花

( 苗木くらいの小さな体によくこれだけの花をつけたな )

大きな大きなケヤキを見上げて チカラが湧いてきたのかな 

Under the big tree

The rain continued for a long time this spring. But I think that the newly born bamboo shoots most have been feeling happy about that.
When I visited Matsuo-Taisha Shrine to see some Japanese kerria which bloom this time of the year, I found a very small azalea blooming at the base of a zelkova tree in the parking area.
Although the azalea I sew was a young plant, it was in full bloom. I wonder if the azalea have been getting energy from the giant zelkova tree.
