Graceful Flowers

When I guided in the Nishinomaru-Teien Garden in Wakayama Castle, I noticed Tricyrtis macranthopsis ―a rare plant, came out.  These are blooming gracefully around the rocks under the stone bridge. The Japanese name “Joro” came from the “Joro Otoshiyori “―the highest rank female servant in lady’s chambers in a palace.        I guess from the color of the flower, she was permitted to wear prohibited noble colors. I hope visitors peacefully enjoy this beauty.

 

Goats at Wakayama Castle zoo

Philosophical consideration is usually done by meditating by himself. However, sometimes it is necessary to carried out debating with fellow philosophers. Today, philosopher goats seemed to be exchanging thoughts together by having their heads getting together.

Philosophy is, sort of, a battle of the brain. The philosopher goat at Wakayama Castle zoo is usually staying still, but today, he was scratching the ground with his legs vigorously and seemed to be deeping his philosophical consideration by doing that.
