Hydrangea Festival at Next City's Park;

       *My friend and us went to see the varieties of Hydrangea Flowers*
My friend taking pictures at the entrance of the Hydrangea garden. It is located uphill in the park.  Let me skip identifying each names of Hydrangea :-)
  




*Display of the potted ones Inside of the Exhibition Room*
I was fascinated to see 'Myrtus Communis' flowering for the first time in the garden. And then my friend told me she has the white one 'Common Myrtle' blooming in her garden.  How lucky I could show you both colors♪          
These pictures below were taken at the 'Dragonfly Lake' in the same huge park. My husband really wished to see the dragonflies. He used his folding bicycle to go down but we had no luck to see one p:-)  Instead, I found these fences and bridges. "It is used as a stage",  answered the staff when I called the park after coming home.
These Mom and Daughter Border Collies greeted us at the entrance of the park.  
Loved their sweet smiling faces ♡♡♡  

Linking this post to "NF Trees n Bushes," "WATW", "Outdoor Wednesday", 

Thank you very much for stopping by; I always appreciate your sweet visits;
Hi, friends;  I've been a bit out of shape with rash on my face etc,
waiting and hoping doctors meds will work soon:-)  Visiting You Soon!!!

Good morning, and thank you for such cute little puppy faces most of all, they sure are quite a welcoming team too. These flowers are amazing, what a lovely place to wander about, and take the lovely photos too. Yours at your own house are very special to have blooming too. Have a wonderful week!

Hi Miyako san. Wow, Ajisai flowers are beautiful! They come in many colors but usually thse lovely pastel colors. They brighten the heart even on rainy days :-)
Sorry you didn't see any dragonflies. But the lake area looks nice with the fences and brides, and large lawn. It would make a good place for outdoor concert or picnic, I think :-) And the woofies are adorable! They are both smiling, how cute!!
Have a lovely day, Miyako san xoxo

Those hydrangeas are so gorgeous. I wish I could see them in person. Happy you posted them on your blog.

Hannah said...

The Hydrangeas are lovely, so many kinds and colors! And I like the poufy Myrtle flowers, I wonder if that is the like that smells good. The dogs do really have lovely welcoming smiles! Hugs from the PNW, dearest Miyako!

The hydrangeas are beautiful. I did not know that there were different varieties -- I just thought different colors. (I am glad you skipped identifying each variety; I am just happy admiring how beautiful they are!) A lovely festival. I like the other flower too (already I have forgotten its name -- a different one from any I've seen.) We DO have hydrangeas in Oregon.

Those dogs do look happy! I keep thinking I should try to take pictures of some of the pets in our neighborhood.

Dearest Miyako,
Those hydrangeas look incredible and one can tell that your climate does them a lot of good!
All your photos are amazing, you have such interesting places to visit.
Hugs and love from your American friend.

What a nice park.

Margaret Adamson said...

Beautiful flowers and park. Love the walkway and fences.

Ida said...

Wow you have some fabulous gardens there where you live. I had no idea there were that many varieties of Hydrangea's - They are so pretty. I also loved seeing the two colors of Common Myrtle blossoms. I think the yellow one is my favorite. - That stage area was really neat, I liked it very much.

Terri @ Coloring Outside the Lines said...

You have such beautiful parks over there. Thanks for sharing.

Marie C said...

Wow! Absolutely stunning, Miyako!

The hydrangeas and myrtle blossoms are really lovely. The beautifully constructed stage is intriguing. I wonder what kind of performance could take place there. What a cute picture of the two beautiful border collies.
