Nanohana can be seen growing in many places in Japan right now, especially around riverbanks. The young flowers are edible and can be eaten if they are lightly boiled in water, the taste is a little similar to broccoli.
The picture shows the same flower, rape, on the hillsides of Hampshire, UK. Here rape is used to make vegetable oil for cooking.

We call it colza in France!
Spring is coming. It means a lot for football fans. I’m ready to fight at knock out stage. In April, there are many important games for the Big-4. Chelsea faces Liverpool at quarter final of the Champions league and faces Arsenal at Semi final of FA CUP. We never foget last season’s chagrin.
Yes, and Chelsea have a very interesting game tomorrow against Newcastle, who have a new coach, their former hero, Alan Shearer.
