This photograph is taken in the garden near my house. In this garden, the spring rose festival started on May 11. It is said that it continues till June 10. Although I had also carried out several times, there were many kinds of roses. There are also already roses in full bloom, or there are still roses of bud. So, it's various. Many groups in character with a party of tourists were coming inside the garden. Mainly, the elderly person was able to see for many. A splendid brick European-style building is in front of a flower bed. It is said that it is the building which British Josiah Conder designed to Meiji period anything. Although the inheritor of the Furukawa financial combine lived here in Meiji-Taishō period, it is sold off to Tokyo Metropolitan goverment in Shōwa period and general public presentation is carried out now. The place of origin of a rose is also various with a very artificial flower. A new type of rose also grows by mating. Moreover, it is interesting that each kind is named. So, there is a thing of a name of a person, and there is an idiom suitable for the image of the flower. Before the rose of the garden here, there is the stake in which the name, the producing district, and the production year were written. It also become study for a while. It opens during this period from 9:00 till 9:00 of night, and is lit up at night.

A most beautiful and pleasant collage of roses. You almost challenged the rules of TE with these close-ups of flowers but you have probably been saved by including the larger picture of the house and the people in front of it, thereby putting the flowers in a wider context.
It is all very well done and appealing.

Perfect exposure and details in each photo of roses and a fine shot of the building to provide a different image from the other six. Interesting building. Lovely light all over. Informative note in addition. Regards. Klaudio.
