Don't Forget These Flowers

Amidst all the fuss during sakura season, it's easy to overlook all the other flowers also in bloom.

Koubai (literally red plum blossoms), exactly the kind of flowers you see on hanafuda cards.

A loropetalum bush. I'd seen magenta blooms before, but I didn't know they also come in white. Here, the petals are still uncurling.

The look like small streamers.

A ladybug, miraculously in focus though shot on my camera phone.
