Phantom Water Lilies" in Nakajima Family Natural Garden in bloom

Monday, June 24, 2024

The "phantom water lilies" in the Nakajima Family Natural Garden have finally flowered.

The water lilies finally started blooming last year after 7 to 8 years of loving cultivation by Mr. and Mrs. Nakajima.

During the winter, the soil is dug up and the entire pot is buried, covered with straw, and carefully and carefully nurtured over the winter!

It has glossy, round, lobed leaves, and modest, quietly pretty pink flowers.

With boundless love, gratitude, and prayers for having met this mysterious flower that seems to have water fairies lurking in it, and for having had the opportunity to see it at the precious moment when it blossomed.
