Floodgate and Water Facility;

         These floodgate and water facility are located very close to my house. 
I would not have paid much attention for their function and how important they are if it were not for blogging and Tex's meme.

This flood gate is adjusting the amount of water of the small river, pumping water to the bigger river on the left.  I sometimes find Egrets here.

This water facility supplies water directly to the pipes of the individual houses. 



Extra pictures to add;
These flowers are from Tropical Botanical Garden in this spring. I wished to put different colors than blue p:)  And the birds on wires I could catch recently. 

Thank you very much for stopping by, wishing you all are having a great week.;

Interesting angles in your fencing.
But I must say I've never seen an ALL WHITE hibiscus. I want one. :-)

Girlfriend, you always find such interesting ideas for pictures, and this one fits right in. Very unusual, and like you I'm much more aware of my surroundings since blogging. Thanks, and hugs from Texas.

Lovely egret! The flood gates is quite a picturesque place, and very important as well. Lovely blossoms, extremely beautiful! Lucky you. Frost is beginning to take a toll on so many of my flowers already.

i love how blogging makes us look a bit closer to our surroundings and see the important role they play in our daily lives. :) something like a water plant would be something i would pass by every day without thinking too much about it. but water is such a vital part of our daily lives. :)

Very interesting to learn about your water plant facility. It is indeed benefical to those who use the water from it.
Nice shots of the pretty flowers and the birds on the wires too.

Like you, photography and blogging have opened my eyes to sights I would have overlooked before. Nice shots of the water facility. The white flowers are gorgeous

Who would have thought a water purifying plant would be front and center on your (or any) meme. Great fence and I am glad it is there as it looks like you could take a tumble from up there. And tnank you for the extras ... always love birds and fences.

Dearest Miyako,
Quite amazing what human beings can accomplish for distributing the water, where needed. Water means life; for growing crops and for keeping people, animals and plants, shrubs, trees alive...
Lovely photos from the botanical garden. Love the white bougainvillea too and of course your birds!
Hugs,
Mariette

Your birds on the wire are cute and like everyone else I think the white flowers are lovely. We visited a water museum while we were in Japan and it was quite intriguing - the blue and white fences of the water facility are very pretty and make a functional place attractive.
