      こんばんは。ありがとうございます。鏡池は晴れると戸隠山の急峻な姿が見えるそうなんですけど、今回は霧の中に微かに見えました。 
       花も良かったですが、新緑も綺麗でした。

  8. こんにちは、風光明媚な地域が続いてますね。戸隠神社の中社も立派ですが、背景の新緑も綺麗で絵になります。戸隠森林植物園は行ったことがありませんが、ウッドデッキを歩きながら野草を観賞できるなんて素敵な公園ですね。「鴎蘭」と二つの池の写真に感動しました。

       こんばんは。ありがとうございます。新緑がとても美しかったです。鴎蘭は超希少種だと、森林植物園を管理している人に教えてもらいました。
       鏡池は晴れていればとても美しい所だそうです。みどりが池が美しかったので、良かったです。

  12. 最初と最後の池の画像は東山魁夷画伯の「緑響く」を思い起させます。戸隠高原は学生時代に行ったきりですが、リゾート開発された信州の中でも一番自然が残る、神々しいところの印象が強かったです。今はどうなのでしょう。藤棚の藤も美しいですが、山藤は自由に高く這い上がっていくのが素敵ですね。奈良公園の野に山に多くあります。

    コメントありがとうございます。そうなんです、今日の最高気温は36度、晴れでした。今年初の熱帯夜が予報されています。関東の天気は雨マークがありますが、関西はお日さまと雲マークばかり。先日行った依水園のこけはみじめな状態でした。

    こんばんは。「緑響く」ですか、ググってみました。絵は良く見ていましたが、題名は知りませんでした。モーツアルトのピアノ協奏曲23番の第二楽章が画伯には聞こえてくると、書いてありましたが、私には聞こえて来ませんでした。

     私は戸隠より志賀高原、白馬岳付近が好きです。戸隠とは天の岩戸の戸を隠した所が語源と言われてますが、その様な神秘的な雰囲気は有る様に思います。

     気候の変動が激しく、まるでヒステリーみたいだと言った方がいました。言いえて妙でした。

  25. The shrine is lovely and the ponds are beautiful, even on a cloud day (they actually look more serene in that muted light!) But it's the flowers that I most enjoyed - wild wisteria? Be still my heart!! :-) Beautiful photos, thank you for sharing them!

  35. Beautiful wildflowers from your walk. I can't believe you have wisteria growing wild in your country. So many gardeners here persevere for years to get it to flower.
