March 28/April 9, 2023 Flowers and Plants in our Garden

Photos of flowers and plants taken at our garden in Gifu City on March 28 and April 9, 2023.

I took these photos using SEL55210 from Sony’s alpha 6000 mirrorless digital camera double zoom lens kit. The sizes of the images are converted to be smaller than the original images so that they don’t take too long to display on a Web page.

I’m not so familiar with the names of flowers and learning them little by little as I look them up on the Internet.
