This photograph is taken in Kyu-Furukawa Gardens near my house. In this garden, there are a Western style garden and a Japanese landscape garden. In a western style garden, a rose festival will be held twice in spring and autumn, and many kinds of roses can be appreciated. Although I visited several times in here, there are various kinds of roses, and I am surprised at abundant shapes and colors of rose. A rose is a very artificial flower which repeats mating and to which a new species is born. And, as for each kind, it is also interesting that scents differ and the original name is attached. Many visitors come at the time of a rose festival, the lady of a kimono figure is seen occasionally. Although the combination the western rose and kimono are strange somehow, they match well with it being unexpected.

Idyllic blend of attractive classical clothed female and dense green foliage with a few rose buds for color.
The most numerous flowering plant in my garden is the rose. My Father was a high school gardener and I recall fond memories of his profession.
Thanks for sharing,

So if I understand you correctly, the rose is not a common or even a natural flower of Japan if you find the combination of this lady in her beautiful traditional kimono and the rose garden that strange?
In my eye the two go perfectly together, both are equally beautiful and serene.
have a great weekend

This is a beautiful photo and you have composed it excellently with the well placed woman standing nicely, facing the roses. I think however that there is a rather strong green tone, so I tried to improve the colors. I hope you won't mind.

This is an excellent shot of this proud lady enjoying her domain. She looks like a rose herself in her beautiful kimono.
