Iris and Dragonfly from city park, Swallow from parking area;

Iris  from Monomiyama Park* 
On 4th this month, I went to see Iris to the park in next city with my friend.   Yesterday, we had heavy rain. Rainy Season has just started in Japan. Irises are the flowers reminds us rain :-)   Seeing the beauty with varieties of color of them, really Felt Thankful for the work of the staffs.


We could also find dragonflies "Sympetrum" there;-) 


Swallows from Parking Area
On our way back from relative's home in different prefecture, there were many swallows flying around. I tried to take flying shots, but they wouldn't let me p;-)  May or early Jun are the season they come to stop by in our area.  So happy for my chance of photographing.

Dear Orchid we both have iris in our posts this week @ Mosaic Monday, I have only yellow ones in my garden this year. The masses of purple and white iris in the park are wonderful to see.

The iris is one of my favorite flowers. Your images are gorgeous. I never get a good image of dragonflies -- well done! The swallows are cute little guys. Have a beautiful week!

Dear Miyako,
The bearded iris are stunning, so beautiful. I have a few in my own garden, because it is an inheritance of the previous owner. Many thanks for sharing them with All Seasons! Have a beautiful week!

Am so happy comment got through -for the first time in a few weeks! Please give me your email Miyako, because it is not listed, and if something goes wrong - like in the last weeks, I have no way to contact you! My email is jeannette (dot) coevorden 1 (at) yahoo (dot) com. I wrote it this way because with some blogspot blogs it gives trouble if I do it in another manner. Have a beautiful week!

I don't think I have ever seen so many iris in one place … it seems they have done a group planting like one might do with tulips. The effect is stunning. Thanks for sharing this with us!
