Nanohana Flower Blooming in Winter

tnanohana blooming in winter
Nanohana(菜の花) is a typical flower which blooms in spring.
"naonohana" is a season word of spring in haiku-poetry.
It is a generic name of flowers which belong to Brassicaceae family.
But usually it indicate rapeseed.

By the way, some species of the family bloom in winter.
The other day, I took the photo above in a field.
Those flowers makes me warm in a moment.
