Good afternoon everybody!
Welcome back to Koganecho Action News!
This is Bill McCormack bringing you the fast and furious news from Koganecho Yokohama Japan. So, today is a very important day here in Koganecho. Something very big happened. For day after day, for month after month, I have been watering this red hibiscus (the Hawaiian Red Hibiscus). And, I thought for sure, it would never flower, but today is the big day and it finally popped! Let’s take a look. So, as you can see, here it is behind me. And, well, unbelievable! Now it’s in front of me! Unbelievable! So, if you want to see Hawaii, you don’t have to fly to Hawaii. Just come here to the Tree House in Koganecho. Ahh! It’s interesting! There is a little discoloration on the edge there. I don’t know why. And there is his friend next-door. It’s a nice bud. It’s about to Blossom soon. Hopefully, the wind doesn’t blow off this flower. If it does, I’ll be back with another episode of Koganecho Action News and tell you how
the wind blew off the flower. I also noticed, today,
that ahh, there is a beautiful wild hibiscus growing here along the river in front of the Tree House. So, and, this is what it looks like here. It’s pink. These wild hibiscus grow along the river, the Ookagawa and they are quite fragile. They don’t like to be touched. If you pick them, and put them in a vase, they will die almost instantly. So they are very delicate flower, very beautiful though inside. So, well, that’s that. Thank you for watching. That’s the wild hibiscus. So now you know! You don’t have to fly to Hawaii to appreciate the Red Hawaiian Hibiscus. You can come here to Koganecho and take some pictures of this beautiful flower. I hope to see you soon!
