After shower at a moment amid record-breaking dry month

These images have been taken at around 14 o'clock today (13 July 2015). Early morning it has rained.

My tiny garden may be Tsubo-niwa kinds. One Tsubo 坪 is 3.3㎡ that is exact 2 sheets of Tatami (Rice-straw mat). The traditional Japanese houses equip a Tsubo-niwa inside its space arranged architectural sense. Such a style is often seen in old capital Kyoto yet. But my garden is upside down far from the order and maintenance. Ha ha...only association with it, I prefer a bit wild due to work much less.


Wild teasel ナベナ属オニナベナ Grote kaardebol ''Dipsacus fullonum''. This flowers belt goes to bloom from ''the equator'' to the upper and lower direction. Soon you will see stripe pattern with two zones.


Trees are germinating between Stepping tiles and stones, Front : European ash / Es トネリコ属 ''Fraxinus excelsior''. Behind : Sycamore maple / Gewone Esdoorn ''Acer pseudoplatanus''.

Tsuwabuki and Ivy at a dark corner.
Tsu-wa-bu-ki ツワブキ Asteraceae ''Farfugium japonicum'' is perennial evergreen that grows such as the coast of rocks and cliffs in Japan. Why does it called ''Leopard plant'' in English? Because of the pattern of green and yellow ? I brought the seeds back out of my birth village, coast of Tango peninsula. They could germinate more than a decade ago, but only this individual survives without getting flowers. I have no idea how it can maintain the life by own.
The Ivy キヅタ属 is not common European type at all as you see. I's possible an ivy from Himalaya as ''Hedera nepalensis'', but I found no further information.


Behind on the wall : Grape tree / Wijnstok ''Vitis spp.…''. Front : Japanese angelica-tree / Duivelswandelstok. Tara-no-ki タラノキ ''Aralia elata''. Sprouts of Taranaki is the most delicious wild vegetable regarded in the Sansai culture.


Wild angelica / シシウド属アンジェリカ / Engelwurzen / Engelwortel. ''Angelica sylvestris''.
Fruits/seeds are becoming ripe.


Yellow Fennel buds with background of tunnel of grape tree.
Fennel / Venkel / ウイキョウ ''Foeniculum vulgare'' belongs to the carrot family. Such a aroma spreading is freshly surprising. All parts of the plant is useful like the Dandelion タンポポ both for the medicine and the kitchen.

Postscriput ; It rains quietly at evening, maybe in whole night. All other plants will be pleased with friendly shower.
