Sunflower, yellow yellow;


* Sea of Flowers;  花の海 2016*
           This is the 3rd year of Sunflower post from this place.
"花の海"  is the biggest 'System farm' in western Japan This year, they said there are 500,000 of them which bloom with 3 time lags.  Yes, it was really hot and precaution needed; I wore a hat with wide brim :-)


With some flower dud;
Left picture below is for the macro link;
I saw lots of butterflies "Pantala flavescens" flying over the flowers; 
but really hard to take good photos, they won't perch on the flowers (^^;)
*From the shop and the entrance for the mosaic and fence link*
I found  "Cat House made of rice-straw ←link to my old post were sold there.
Picture of the hat in the header was taken at the shop.



     So sorry for the unmatched header for the memes I'm linking this Saturday.  
         Posting a bit early as I'm Not Sure about the schedule of this weekend.
        Have a happy coming weekend friends♪

Linking this post to, "SEASONS", "Macro Monday"MosaicMonday",

Dearest Miyako, thank you for sharing these beautiful sunflowers with Today's Flowers. I am so happy to see you there and appreciate your participation, especially as I have been on a break for a few weeks. I am happy to be visiting you again. I can just imagine all the butterflies and seeing the dragonflies enjoying those beautiful yellow flowers. I loved all your photos but especially liked the one of the two young ladies with the white umbrella among the sea of sunflowers. Thank you again and I wish you a very happy weekend. From your friend in Virginia, Denise xxx

Wow, this is amazing, Miyako san! Such a beautiful sea of sunflowers. 「絵に描いたような、、、」というのはこういう風景を言うのですね。すごすぎです! I love sunflowers. Their cheerful colors and faces looking up sun are so delightful. I wish I could fly over the sea like those butterflies. They must be enjoying the view from up in the air :-)
The rice-straw cat house is so cute! Looks cozy and also the material must be attractive for scratching for some kitties :-) Have a happy weekend, Miyako san!

Wow, had no idea Japan also had sunflowers! Love the photo with the girls with the parasol in between the sunflowers. Welcome to SEASONS and hope we will see you back very soon (Hope you know that SEASONS goes beyond landscapes and flowers - any experience or event in the season is a great subject) Have a happy week!

Such a glorious display of bright yellow sunflowers. They look so lovely.

Alex said...

Oh, so beautiful.What a spectacular sight.
Love the pic of the two girls gazing onto the field with the white parasol. That could be a poster!
What a sweet little woven cat basket ~ although, my previous cats would never sleep in any bed I bought for them!

Love to you across the miles!

riitta k said...

Hellou again! The two girls under the parasol are so exquisite!!

Snap said...

My favorite color and nothing better than sunflowers. Thrilling to see them all in a field. A store, too! Wonderful. Have a great week!

Beautiful!

Pondside said...

Sunflowers always make me smile. They are such an emblem of summer and I am sure that every child has, at one time or another, planted a row. I like your photo of the girls with the umbrella in the sunflower field. Have a good week!

Lessandra said...

So beautiful! I love to see sunflowers in a garden - but this is extra special being so many sunflowers!

Sylvia said...

Miyako, Thanks for sharing sunflowers! They are my favorite. Sylvia D.

Beautiful! I love a field of sunny flowers.

Hello dear Miyako from a still sunny and humid New York. I just love sunflowers. Mine are just starting to bloom but I would love to see so many sunflowers with happy butterflies and bees visiting ... Michelle

Mariette VandenMunckhof-Vedder said...

Dearest Miyako,
What a sea of sunflowers in their pretty golden yellow!
Our Sister-City of Sanbongi (part of Osaki City) also is famous for its sunflowers.
However we did not get to see such huge fields when we were there in July.
Love the flying dragon flies, you captured the total in a an excellent way.
Sending you hugs,
Mariette

What a wonderful sight. You cannot help but smile at those beautiful flowers.

Maria Gagliano said...

How lovely. What a wonderful place to take photos

genie said...

What a heavenly post. It brings back the memory of driving in Colorado and passing huge fields of all bright yellow sunflowers. I got my husband to pull off the road and I walked out into the field so he could take my picture surrounded by beautiful yellow sunflowers. This are wonderful captures. The one of the field from behind with their umbrella is my favorite. And the hat is oh, so cute. If I had been in the shape I would have bought it as I always wear brimmed hats. genie

Lorrie said...

What a beautiful sight those sunflowers are, so many of them lifting their heads to the sun. Hats are good ideas on these hot, sunny days. I wear mine often. Are the sunflowers harvested for their oil? Have a wonderful week!

Molly said...

Love all the sunflowers

I love sunflowers Miyako. Our oldest grandson and his wife were married in an outdoor ceremony; they had vases and vases of sunflowers and you could see some still blooming behind the shelter... the prettiest wedding ever! And yours is the most beautiful flower farm ever!! Thank you.

Prunella Pepperpot said...

What an amazing place to visit. So many gorgeous sunflowers and photographed beautifully. Loving the one of the two girls under the umbrella against the blue sky.
Have a wonderful Wednesday :)

Su-sieee! Mac said...

Lovely fields of sunflowers. It must've felt amazing to stand among them.

Margaret Adamson said...

WOW! I have never seen so many Sunflowers before adn I love the shot of the 2 girls in the field with their umbrella up.

Breathtaking said...

Hello Miyako!:) Rarely have I seen such beautiful pictures of Sunflowers. These are all beautiful images and I also like the one with the two girls with their backs to the camera sharing a sunshade. It could easily be a wall painting. The cats homes made out of straw are cleverly made, and look very attractive, they remind me of bee-hives. Have a nice day, and take care.:)

Ida said...

Wow that's a lot of Sunflowers. So very pretty. What a nice entrance to the garden as well.

pattisjarrett said...

Wow! So many sunflowers! They look beautiful, I can only imagine how spectacular they are in person.
