荒山公園の梅 3 (Ume Blossoms in Kozen Park 3)


 1枚目の写真は「輪違い」(一本の木に異なる色の花が咲くことを意味する)、2枚目は「新平家」(平家の旗は赤色だった)、3枚目は「白加賀」(加賀を治めた前田氏の家紋は黒地に白のウメの図案「加賀梅鉢」)というウメの品種。2011年3月5日、荒山公園で撮影。

The first photo shows the cultivar of ume called "wa-chigai," meaning "to have blossoms of different colors." The second shows "shin-Heike," named after the red flag of Heike or Taira family that had political power over Japan in the 12th century. The third shows "shiro-Kaga," meaning "white Kaga," where Kaga is the old name of the part of Ishikawa Prefecture that was ruled by Maeda clan from 1583 to 1868 (the emblem of Maeda clan, "kaga-umebachi," was a white ume blossom in the black background). The photos were taken in Kozen Park on March 5, 2011.
