Sunflowers;

Today without planning in advance, I visited the place called "Sea of Flowers; 花の海", where less than an hour drive from my house. The shop planted 100,000 of them and they bloom with 3 time lags (I wish I'm making myself understood). These were the ones planted for the second stage. It was not a good weather day but I enjoyed the flowers to the full



Some close up and the one which may help you capture how wide the place;

I said 'Goodbye' to the flowers and got into the shop; 



I'm linking this post to

So sorry that I knew I wasn't able to give comments back yet to many friends. 
But after the busy day tomorrow, I will; 

Thank you very much for stopping by;

The back side of the sunflowers is as beautiful as the front. Beautiful post and I didn't have any trouble understanding you.

What a happy sight, and wonderful photos.I always associate Sunflowers with cheerfulness,and brightness, and so many of them would cheer up the dullest of days. I wonder how they knew which way to turn!:))
Sending Warm Hugs!

Sunflowers are such big happy flowers. I've seen a sunflower field only once, and just the sight of it had me stopping the car to take a photo! That was many years ago. Enjoy your weekend Miyako! Wendy x

Lucky you being able to stop and admire them. I've only seen a field of them once but not where we could stop the car to get photo's.
Have a lovely day.

Dearest Miyako,
At first I thought you did visit Osaki City as they grow lots of sunflowers there! Always lovely and funny to see their faces turned towards the sun. In French they are called just that: Tournesol (turned to the sun).
Love the frog Welcome signs; so cute!
Hugs,
Mariette

Miyako, these pictures are stunning! Absolutely beautiful. Sunflowers are a great favorite of mine and these are some of the best I've ever seen.

You words are perfectly clear about the staggered plantings -- I understood it exactly (as anyone would).
