Rain Protection

April showers are supposed to bring May flowers, but they are already blooming in Tokyo. These are azaleas which are pretty hardy flowers. White ones, though, can get bruised by constant rain. A gardener is trying to protect them by putting this umbrella over them. I've seen this done for peonies. I haven't seen any in bloom yet. As you can see by the reflection, the sun came out a little today. Exactly at the time I took this picture.
