Today we drove by a rose garden not far from our home. Whenever I pass it, whether I'm on the car or on the train, I always make a point of checking to see if there are any roses blooming. The rose season usually finishes towards the end of November but although today is December 12, there were still roses blooming! Not a lot, of course, but still... I'm originally from Canada where this time of year brings snow and cold and so, even after all these years in Japan, the fall blooming season continues to delight me. It always seems miraculous!
This rose was blooming in the Nakanoshima Rose Garden in central Osaka, in mid-November.
I'm a photographer based in Osaka, Japan. I love to take photographs. I like to share.
