Today, it was fine and warm.
I went to a woods near my house, and took these photos.
Kobushi is a tree which bloom in early spring.
So it is a word of spring in haiku poetry.
Those trees in the first photo are very tall.
"kobushi" literally means fist in English.
Because the fruit of the tree looks like a fist.

It is getting warm, we are in early spring.
By the way, this ikebana was displayed in a concourse of railway station.
About Ikebana, Please, check my article Ikebana in the railway station .
This ikebana has very simple composition.
Very small petals which have soft colours get the fresh green colour more beautiful.
I think it is an image of spring.
