Firework Festival (花火大会) in my City etc;

*Went to see Fireworks*
On 22ed. (some days later of Marine Day),  we enjoyed beautiful fireworks held in my city, which is almost an annual event for both of us to go p;-)    Although I know the pictures won't express the dynamics of the event, hope you can enjoy the atmosphere. 


*Amaryllis from inside of neighbor's fence*
This amaryllis was blooming at my next neighbor's yard in the middle of this June.
I thought the color will matches the fireworks topic♪


*Ducks from last December*
I cannot find birdies recently with this scorching hotness. These ducks were enjoying their relaxing time in the nearby river last Dec. ♫♫♫


I have finally fixed my link pages' 'links' by myself.  Still not being able to remove the notice from photobucket between the posts. I'm wondering how many of you have the same trouble...   I hope you will have a wonderful new week.

Linking this post to these pages and Thanks to all the link hosts;

Hello, Miyako! The fireworks looks beautiful. I love the pretty amaryllis, lovely blooms. Happy Sunday, enjoy your day and new week ahead!

Wow, amazing display of fireworks! They look so delicate and gorgeous. I biggified the photos to enjoy the detail. The shape of the first one kind of resembles the amaryllis, I think :-) The blossoms are so gorgeous, too, and cute photos of ducks from last December. I hope the birds keep cool in this hot temperature!
Sorry to see you are still having trouble with photobucket. I don't use it so I have no idea how to fix it :-( I hope it can be resolved.
Have a lovely new week and coming August, Miyako san!

Dearest Miyako,
That was a great Marine Day celebration with stunning fire works. Great photos; as usual by you!
The Amaryllis indeed look like fire work stars.
And your duck photos are great too.
Sorry, I don't use Photobucket either so no tips on solving your problem.
Hugs,
Mariette

The fireworks are awesome! The ducks are so cute (and greatly captured, Miyako!) and the Amaryllis is amazing! Have you seen Carol's Amaryllis in the first row? Many thanks for sharing all these amazing experiences with All Seasons!! Enjoy your summer this week!

Your fireworks photos are stunning. They are so difficult to photograph but you did so well. That amaryllis is a delight for the eye, so are the ducks. Wishing you a happy August my dear friend <3

So many beautiful ducks in one place! Your fireworks are spectacular and your Amaryllis stunning. Have a wonderful week.

Miyako, the fireworks are a yearly event ... aren't you lucky. We have that event in the States on 4th of July to celebrate our Independence from Great Britain. It is my favorite holiday. To explain: Everyone gets together for a picnic, watches parades, and at night the fireworks blast off. It is sharing of ourselves instead of being focused on bringing gifts. Lovely flowers did look like fireworks. Enjoy the rest of the week. See you next time, my friend. Hugs.

Your firework shots are great! Love the orange lily ... and it is fine to show birds from when the weather was nicer; I love mallard ducks!! it is too hot here in Oregon too -- I have really not been out looking for birds or nature walking for two weeks.

Lady Fi said...

What lovely shots. Hope all is well with you, my friend.

Dearest Miyako,
Okay, just got back from our trip to Florida and noticed on my sidebar, the ONE and ONLY such photo bucket message as you show here below this post.
So I did log into Photobucket's website to figure it out.
Learned that they changed their rules, as of July 6, 2017: http://blog.photobucket.com/please-review-latest-changes-photobucket/
3RD PARTY HOSTING they only do if you pay them $ 39.99/MO http://photobucket.com/p500/

FORGET IT!
I removed that right away and created my very own image with link.
Go to you blog for Layout. click on Add a Gadget and select: Image. From the drop down you can add the Title, Caption and the Link (URL that clicking this image will link to). Upload the Image from your computer instead of from Photobucket.
That's it.
Sending you hugs,
Mariette

Great firework! Yes, Amaryllis are live fireworks too. Have a nice weekend!

Gordon said...

I like your fireworks and also your beautiful flowers, I think they complement each other.
Have a good weekend, Gordon.

Nice colorful amaryllis!

Rambling Woods said...

Hello Miyako.....everyone seems to love fireworks and I think you captured them beautifully... It seems to be really hot everywhere including here....Michelle

A Colorful World said...

Explosions of color (fireworks and flowers!) and great shots of the ducks!

Sue (this n that) said...

such beautiful fireworks Miyako! It's always so exciting to experience them in person, however, your photos bring the thrill of them to us.
A good choice in the Amaryllis - it's just like a bursting of the fireworks and bright colour.
Have a wonderful week :D) xx

You shared some great photos today, and I appreciate you sharing them with us birders at I'd Rather B Birdin' this weekend!! Thanks...love those ducks.

Angie said...

Miyako - I have tried capturing fireworks and it is hard, so I am really impressed with your photos. Have a wonderful week.

Jean @sonotorganized.com said...

Beautiful fireworks photos! And those flowers are simply stunning. I always love ducks :) Hope you have a great week!

Patti said...

You took great photos of the fireworks, and you're right, the rays of color in the amaryllis blend well with the fireworks theme. What a lovely flower that is. I saw a Mallard duck at the gas station recently, followed by several little ones. They were the center of attention!

Kelleyn Rothaermel said...

Gorgeous! Thanks for sharing! Have a lovely week!

edenhills said...

Nice captures of the fireworks. The flowers are stunning. Cute ducks. Thanks so much for joining Friday's Hunt. Have a great rest of the week!
