Flower Viewing in June (part 2)

Hello friends, I hope to post 'part 2' of the flower viewing day with my friend. These pictures were taken at the park in our city on 10th of this month.  
In this park, there are about 80 thousand irises with 150 kinds. I posted many pictures of them in 'part 1', so I'll skip large individual ones p;)  

I loved to see the ducks welcomed us and even cast eyes for me ♡♡♡

I knew this flower Stewartia pseudocamellia from illustration page p;)  But never seen real flower blooming. We call this flower "夏椿 natutubaki; summer camellia" in Japanese. Unfortunately, just a few of them were blooming.

And  Hydrangeas were blooming along the path


  1. These are simply stunning, my dear friend! I felt like I could almost smell them, your pictures are so good. I am so glad you got to go and enjoy them- they are divine!

  2. really beautiful place. i love the ducks, too. :)
