I took this photo on the walking road along ebigawa ( ebi-river ) today.
That tree is jugatsu-zakurra (Prunus x subhirtella cv. Autumnalis).
It is a cherry starts to bloom in fall.

I found the moon above the tree.
I love the moon in fall.

Jugatsu-zakura in Blue Sky

I took this photo in my town today.
Jugatsu-zakura (Prunus x subhirtella cv. Autumnalis) is a cherry tree that starts to bloom in fall. "jugatsu" means October.
In winter, it stops blooming.
And it blooms again in spring.
We can enjoy those blossoms twice in a year.

Japanese Photinia in Autumn

Japanese Photinia in Autumn
I took this photo today.
These small trees are Japanese Photinia.
It is popular as hedge.

Those red ( not green ) leaves are fresh leaves.
( Colour of the leaf turns to green from red )

Usually, fresh leaves of the tree come out in spring.
But, if they prune it in summer, fresh red leaves come out again in fall.
And it makes beautiful contrast of green and red.

Boats in the Town

boats in the town

Those small boats in the river go to a shallow in Tokyo bay to catch clams.
You can see nets for catching clams in the first photo.
I have something nostalgic feeling when I see those boats in the town.
