nice to see something this pretty coming out of Saitama

I went to visit there last week and half of the blooms were already dead, but it is still very pretty up there. Also I love that train ride to Chichibu. It's very pleasant and relaxing riding a train up in the mountains.

I fondly remember Shibazakura from Hokkaido.

Photographs don't do them justice.

They are gorgeous.

Phlox or moss pink, not moss phlox.

@ Nessie - Moss phlox is an acceptable term for phlox subulata; "moss phlox" is found in several different descriptions on the Internet. Why do you think that it is an incorrect term?
