My short words

I could get some kinds of freshness and pleasure form the flowers when I saw them in the morning :)

My short words (in Japan)

Tradescantia ohiensis (Ohio Spiderwort, Bluejacket) flowers in Fukuoka, Japan

I came across these flowers when I went for a walk in a nearby park in the morning.
I felt as if they said, "Good morning, everyone!"
