Fence and Flowers;

*For Tex's "Good Fences"*
On my way back from the temple I visited to see "Higan-bana", I saw very idyllic scene which I can't see in my city. Trees are fencing the large rice paddy field, I asked my husband to stop the car and luckily he found the space to park:-) 
I may not pay attention to the beauty of these scene without blogging and Tex's meme (^_^)




*For Trishie's "Floral Friday" and DeniseinVA's "TODAY'S FLOWERS"*
Especially for the theme of the "Floral Friday" which is "garden flowers", these flowers are from my dear friend's garden taken in the middle of last month.
Crape-myrtle, we call this flower "百日紅、サルスベリ"
These two Japanese names have different context even if we call both characters "saru-suberi".  First character means "redish for 100 days" and second one means "monkey slip" due to the tree sap.  Dictionary said not exactly so p-:)
White ones were a bit late;

Chinese trumpet vine;
sorry, don't know the name;

Linking this post to "Good Fences""Floral Friday" and "TODAY'S FLOWERS".

          Thank you very much for stopping by;                           
                      Happy October, friends.  And I'll see you soon♪

Dearest Miyako,
What a lovely scenery you show us in those top photos; glad you managed to stop!
Love your Crape-myrtle photos and yes, they do emit a very sticky sap, that is nearly impossible to get off your car... We did have a huge white one next to the driveway but we had to cut it. Soiling the cars parked there, the concrete and also our balcony. We have a baby from that big white one and it is in the lawn behind the gazebo where no problems exist.
Hugs to you and thanks for sharing the botanical beauty!

Hi Miyako san. What a beautiful scenery of rice paddy field! And the trees make such lovely and natural fence. Colors of the field is amazing. I love 田園風景 in Japan :-)
Sarusuberi looks very pretty! Interesting that Kanji character reads Sarusuberi.
Happy October, Miyako san. I bet your favorite cake shop is having cute Halloween display. I see orange/black a lot in stores here :-)

The fence scenes truly are idyllic, Miyako! I love the terracotta coloured roofs in amongst the greens and yellow.

Beautiful scenery --- digital cameras and blogging have certainly made me see beauty where I might not have noticed it before!

We saw our first crape myrtle only a few years ago when we were traveling in the south. (It does not bloom in western US)... I couldn't get over how lush and lovely it is.

Tanya Breese said...

that view is incredible! i love that tree fence :) i love crepe myrtles, we have them here too!

McGuffy Ann Morris said...

Gorgeous scenes. I have a Crepe Myrtle on my post, too! Great minds think alike.

HOOTIN ANNI said...

That trumpet vine has huge blossoms!! Very pretty. Here in Texas, the trumpets are the same color, but not so big. I'm jealous.

georgettesullins said...

Beautiful blooms! I agree "I may not pay attention to the beauty of these scene without blogging and Tex's meme." Thanks again to Theresa who brings us together and prompts us to really look.

The nostalgic autumn rice paddy view! The smoky makes me feel autumn. I like the view like this. Because I'm a Japanese,I wonder.
Have a nice day!

Ileana said...

Great views and flowers! Greetings from Romania!

Carola Bartz said...

The trees make such a beautiful fence, I love the curve they are forming. Beautiful flowers, too - we have crape myrtle here as well, they are stunning at the end of the summer. The trumpet vine is gorgeous, the hummingbirds love that one!

Gorgeous scenic views! The crape myrtle flowers are really lovely.

Margaret Adamson said...

Love the fence of trees and scenery. The flowers are very beautiful. thanks for comment on my post today.

Marie said...

The fence photos are just stunning! Such beautiful scenery! And I love the crepe myrtles...we grow them in the American south as well, and I miss them! Beautiful photos Miyako!

Ida said...

These were wonderful. What a neat way to fence the rice fields with the trees. Such gorgeous countryside and beautiful flowers. I enjoyed all your photos very much.

janiceadcock said...

Another terrific series of photos and comments. Have a blessed weekend.

trishie said...

Love that scenery. And the crepe mrytle from your friends garden is very beautiful

Andrea Priebe said...

What an eye you have and bless you husband for stopping and allowing you to take pictures so you could share with us. The perfect tree fence ... something I haven't seen around here ... or maybe I have and didn't realize that was the purpose. Your Mertyl is gorgeous ... one can almost imagine the aroma coming from them. I love trumpet vines too ... the Chinese vines look just like ours and they are so prolific ... they grow and grow and pretty soon you are cutting them back out of desparation ... but when they bloom, they are beautiful. Wonderful post, Orchid ... thank you!

Dear Miyako,

Lovely scenery taken of the rice paddy fields and isn't it interesting that you see things in a different light with blogging.
Love the Myrtle blossoms and such a lovely shade of pink.
Happy weekend dear friend.
Sending love and hugs

Lovely! I enjoyed seeing the rice paddy field. Crape myrtle is one of my favorite flowering trees.

Gunilla Bäck said...

Lovely landscapes and gorgeous flowers.

Incredibly beautiful unspoiled scenery in Japan, so lovely with the deep green hills and light green rice paddy. The tree fence is so cute, do you know what tree it is? I think Osage Orange is used like that in the S. USA. I grew up seeing lots of Crape Myrtles in Houston, I've seen them blooming up here in a couple of attractions in Portland. The flowers are so frothy.

The last photos of cute pink flowers are called Oxalis, I'm not sure what variety. They have 3-part leaves like clover. I have some as house plants that are dark burgundy and triangular, and some that come up as weeds and are also burgundy with little yellow flowers.
