Egret and Rice‐Planting;

(I needed to change my header with really unmatched one for the newer post; 
so sorry for the friends coming from the links of this post.)

*Continued version from this post*
Late last month, I found the egret having lunch in the rice-paddy close to the farmers planting rice. Seeing me concentrating taking photos, they looked at me a moment (maybe) wondering why I was taking pictures :-)  



These pictures of Hyacinth was from early this spring at the restaurant where we had lunch close to Shimonoseki-city. Although this is spring flower, I felt they bring us cool feeling.  And the sweet display at the entrance fit for the coming hot days♪  



Thank you very much for stopping by; I always appreciate your sweet visits;

Egret is so cute! Looks like he was enjoying lunch time in the rice paddy :-) Those hyacinth flowers are beautiful. Interesting how they put the bulb in vase and let root grow like that. The display did bring some nice cool feelings to me :-) The last photo is beautiful, too. Love the stra hat!

I love seeing how the rice is planted. WE've seen it being harvested (in the State of Louisiana) but have never seen it being planted. So interesting.

Your collages are beautiful. As always. As is your header. Thank you for sharing it all Miyako. I always feel happy after I visit you.

Fascinating about planting rice. I love your egret images...and the heart shaped frame of your first egret photo is such a beautiful added touch to the photo.

Hannah said...

The egret is so lovely, especially in the heart framing, dearest Miyako. It's interesting to see how they plant rice, so modernized, but still wearing the pointed hats, I wish I could find one. Hugs from the PNW, Hannah

Fun to see the rice planting and the beautiful herons "helping"! I love hyacinths. All your flowers are lovely. Happy Monday!

It is fascinating to see how the rice is planted, perhaps the procedure stirs up some tasty morsels for the egret.
Thank you for linking to Mosaic Monday Miyako.

The sweet scent of hyacinth filled my mind as I saw the image. The hyacinth is a sweet reminder of spring.
