☆☆ BB's Blog ☆☆ KV 2

ぼくの名前はBBです。「悪いヤツ」と呼ぶ人もいます。でも、犬には「いいヤツ」だと思われているかもしれません。これでいいのだ。バカボンのパパなのだ。ちなみに、バカボンもBBみたいですが、ぼくはバカボンとは別人です。

英国のバラ


バラは高温多湿のニッポンの風土には合わないという。英国はちがう。英国の気候はバラのためにあると言ってもいいくらいに、バラにとって住みよい国が英国だ。それだけじゃない。イギリス人に花を愛する人は多いが、中でもバラは特別な花のようであり、英国ほどにバラが愛されている国は、この地球上にそう多くは存在しないのじゃないだろうか。

ロンドンで一戸建ての家を所有するのはふつうじゃないから、多くの住民は大きな庭をもつことができない。しかし、集合住宅に広い庭が備わっているのは珍しくないようだし、そうでなくても、窓辺に植木鉢を並べたりしながら草花との交流を楽しむのは、イギリス人の国技と呼んでもいいくらいだから、朝青龍も朝顔もビックリ仰天だろう。

庭というと、地上げ国家ニッポンでは、カネモチ連中の贅沢だと思うかもしれないが、これも英国の常識ではちがっている。かの国では、平均以下の稼ぎしかない労働者階級の人でも、小さな庭付きの家をもつことは可能であり、実際、英国にはバラとかダリアとかの園芸名士として知られた人が、貴族的なマナーハウスにではなく、つつましやかな家で静かに暮らしながら、園芸とは関係のない仕事で薄給を稼いでいるということが多いようだ。

庭といえば、英国の一戸建て住宅の庭は、おもてからは見えない裏側にあるのがふつうだ。東京の地元でも、むかしは同じように外からは見えない庭を所有する古い家が多かったように思う。おそらくそれが日本家屋の伝統じゃなかったのだろうか。しかし、例のX市でよく見かけた真新しい一戸建て住宅の場合は、おもてから丸見えの豪華な庭を有する豪邸が目立ったような気がする。

イギリス人にとって庭の手入れは、まったく個人的な生き甲斐に関する行為であって、そこに世間の眼が干渉する余地は何もない。隣りの車がベンツに昇格したら、うちのがマーチのままじゃ世間体が悪いというような、その種の虚栄が入る余地もない。ただひと知れず花を愛し、花から愛され、そこに言葉がなくとも無言のうちに幸福の何たるかを知る。イギリス人は人生を贅沢に生きるすべを、イヌばかりか草花からも学んでいるのかもしれない。

それはともかく、ぼくの英国かぶれはマークス寿子どころの騒ぎじゃないから、今年もひと知れず日本語圏ネット世界の片隅で、ぽつりぽつりと語っていこうと思う。美しいバラとの交流を楽しむように。

英国の話ではないけれど、ヘッセの「庭仕事の愉しみ」という本を思い出しました。私の本棚はきちんと整理されているので、内容を確認しようと思えばすぐに手にとることができるのですが、とても深いテーマなので、また落ち着いた機会にお話したいと思います。

ところで、”英国のバラ”の写真をよくよく見たのですが、私にはどうしても”日本の椿”に見えてしまうのです。何かの間違いか、私の勘違いか、どちらなんでしょう?

椿のように見えると言われれば、たしかにそんな気がしてきますね。バラは100種類以上もあるそうですから、中には椿みたいなのも混じっているのかもしれません。Dog Roseなんて名前のバラまであって、これはどう見てもバラには見えないし、なぜイヌがくっついているのかも不明です。たとえば、BBはヒュー・グラントのように見えることもあれば、時にはミスター・ビーンのように見えることもある。バラもきっとそうなのでしょう。奥が深いんですね。

Hello just wanted to give you a quick heads up. The words in your content seem to be running off the screen
in Internet explorer. I'm not sure if this is a format issue or something to do with browser compatibility but I figured I'd
post to let you know. The layout look great though!
Hope you get the problem resolved soon. Thanks

Hey there would you mind stating which blog platform you're working with? I'm looking to start my
own blog in the near future but I'm having a difficult time choosing between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal. The reason I ask is because your design and style seems different then most blogs and I'm looking for something unique.
P.S Sorry for getting off-topic but I had to ask!

does offer me some fodder for thought. However, because of everything
that I have observed, I simply just wish as other

Anyway, thank you for this outstanding point and even though I do not necessarily go along with this in totality, I regard the point of view.

The root of your writing while sounding reasonable initially, did not
sit perfectly with me after some time. Somewhere within the paragraphs you managed
to make me a believer but just for a very short while.
I still have a problem with your jumps in logic and
you would do nicely to fill in all those gaps. When you can accomplish that,
I could undoubtedly end up being fascinated.
