Sweet flag (Acorus calamus) and Heron;

t       The other day, my driver husband had time to take me our city park; 
I DID have a big luck finding a wild heron there   I couldn't wait to show you pictures I took; These Sweet flag (Acorus calamus) and Iris reminds us Japanese that the rainy season is around the corner. And they were my late mother's favorite flower:)





I was so happy that this sweet Heron appeared for me♡♡♡
I wished to take the shots that he flew away, but just ready to take off one;


Pond spread in front of the old Gazebo;

  I got sudden guests today. I'll visit you as soon as possible, friends;

  10. Hello Miyako, they are such delicate colours of Iris and Flags - how lovely for you to see so many, especially when they hold dear memories for you.
    I've never photographed a Heron and so it is always exciting when I see them in other blogs and yours is no exception. A chance meeting and he stayed long enough for you :D)

  20. I too love the Iris, it is a lovely flower. And that shot of the blue heron is great. When I was young blue herons nested in one of the trees in the park where we went to play, we would look for them arriving every season.
    Thanks for sharing.

    love from New Zealand,

  21. Nice photos. I love Herons. They're so graceful and they often linger long enough for me to snap a nice photo of them.

  22. The flowers are beautiful! Lucky you with the Heron shot. I chase one around that likes my brother' pond, but it always escapes.

  23. I love irises and your photos are beautiful. I have purple and yellow ones blooming now in my front garden. Great blue herons are such interesting birds to watch. Every part of them is odd, but altogether they are beautiful!

  33. I haven't heard these flowers called flags in ages. My mom and mother in law called them flags. And your images are stunning!!! A big plus is to have a heron strolling through to add to the beauty of it all.

    Thanks so much for linking up this weekend.
