The Camellia japonica - red lilly, 'Yuri' in Japanese, is opening its bulb in the east yard of my garden. It takes much more time to bloom this year. Another species of Camellia pink - 'Akebono' has blossomed, and it looks somehow shrinked rather than always. This winter is really severe to Camellia.

A red bulb of the lilly Camellia japonica - 'Yuri' is ready for blooming in the east yard of my house. It is a flower like a red lilly. I'm excited to see it again this year.

Snow flakes danced at noon in Tokyo. It's a timely gift from the heavens as is proper for the season. Camellias hesitate to open the flowers in my yards. The end of winter is too afar.

I found a white flower of the original species of Camellia japonica - 'Shiro Yabu' opened under the blue sky in this morning. Two more bulbs of the Camellia wait for blooming this year. Today is the last day off of this new year holidays. I'm happy to enjoy this gift from God all day.

In the midnight, before the dawn, a very much strange quake occurred only in the very center of Tokyo right under the Imperial Palace and three regions of Tohoku area. The magnitude of the quake is very much small around 3.4, and its epi center was very much far from Tokyo, that was under the deep sea of Ise area, where there was no quake felt therein. It's a very much rare type of a quake, that happens sometimes during these two years. But, it is really strange.

A white bulb of Camellia japonica - 'Haku Myou-ren-ji' began to bloom in this new year morning. This flower shines of transparent white that means very much clearer white than any other Camellia species. I really love that white color among various Camellia series. It's a nice gift from God for this new year!

It's a pleasant day! Dogs lie and enjoy sweet dreams under a blue sky. What a nice weather we enjoy on the last day of 2016. Camellias wait for blooming in my yards. Tomorrow should be very much nice for them.
