White and Red

Please, look at the photo above carefully.
You can find a ume (Japanese apricot) tree that has both red blossoms and white blossoms.
This ume tree stands in kameido tenjin that is a shinto shrine located in kameido, koto ward.

These photos were taken on February 28, 2010.

I'm wondering how it is possible! but the result is marvellous, as your last picture shows it! I wish you a good week-end!

Very pleasing pictures!

I think the ume tree with the two different blossoms colours might have been grafted in the past. But I'm no specialist in gardening.
I'm more such of a kind of Nobu-san; I'm delighted by the beauty of nature and like to capture the scene or moment with my camera.

That is so unusual. How did that happen? Very pretty though!
