Sunflowers 2015;

On Tuesday this week, I visited the place called "Sea of Flowers; 花の海", where less than an hour drive from my house. This place is the biggest 'System farm' in western Japan.  As I wrote last year, they planted 100,000 of them and they bloom with 3 time lags. It was SO hot, record high temperature, TV said. 

 I saw lots of butterflies "Pantala flavescens" flying over the flowers; 
After developed I found vague image of one of them for the Eileen's meme :-)

These lovely two girls were takiing pictures of themselves by using Selfie-Stick.  
The cute girls were even wearing the same clothes and hats :-)


*Inside the Store*

*The farm has these sweet goats and kids were feeding them*
 We are having hottest summer and wished not having had to be outside for weeding

I love sunflowers and there's no better photo subject than a huge field of them! Nice photos, and I liked the girls with their selfie stick.

Tamago said...

Oh wow! What a spectacular sight! It's a sea of flowers indeed! It was so hot, but must have been worth the visit :-) Sunflower is one of my favorite flowers. They are very lovely and so cheerful. Two girls taking selfies are adorable. It must have made great photos for them :-)
Please be careful when outside under hot sun. Have a great weekend, Miyako san xoxo

Dearest Miyako,
Don't forget to bring your water bottle and drink plenty of water when out in the hot weather!

Cute those goats for feeding.

I love sunflowers .. They are the happiest most cheerful flower ever. But I have never seen so many growing together... How I would love to visit that farm! This is a wonderful post. We had some sad news from a dear friend this morning that made me sad...I needed a happy post, thank you for giving me something to smile about!

And please stay in where it is cool ... No weeding in a heat wave. ))))

Hannah said...

The fields of sunflowers are amazing, dearest Miyako, what a fun place to visit, kind of like the tulip fields here in the spring. I'm growing some sunflowers for the first time this year and want to grow more kinds next year. The goat look like fun too. I get up early in the summer and work while it is cool, then come in until evening when it cools down again. Our weather has been getting cooler, I hope we don't have any more heat spells this summer. Hugs from the PNW, Hannah

What a fabulous display of one of my favorite flowers and I am also highlighting them this week too! I would be visiting them often if they were that close, and because sunflowers make me smile!

Roses, Lace and Brocante said...

hello dear Miyako
You have taken me straight back to France where the sunflowers had just started blooming when I left!
There is nothing nicer than walking through a field of sunflowers, they seem to give off an energy.
The young girls are lovely - so sweet they dressed in the same outfits.
I saw those 'selfie' sticks everywhere when I was away - have you got one?!
Hugs
Shane

Hello Miyako from a rainy New York today. I am so sorry to hear of you heat sickness. It can be dangerous and sneak up on you. I hope you are feeling better now as I am late in visiting this week. Oh all those wonderful sunflowers. I love them and have some planted here too.. Michelle
