Illumination at the city park and nature with purplish color;

                       *Illumination at the Botanical Garden 
Last week, my friend and I went to see the illumination at the botanical garden in our city park. Let me show you the pictures and videos I could choose some of the ones which I think deserve to post p;-) Unfortunately, the videos I took inside the garden were blurry. But the colorful flowers and fishes etc. illuminated were fantastic and felt the last of summer atmosphere.

I wish I could take these moving illumination with video p;-)

Pictures below were from the outside the exit.
The shadow of the lady was a lady who was walking ahead of us.

 I should be "Thankful" for the lady.

Two short videos from inside and outside.

Purplish flower and Butterfly 
These pictures were taken this July when my husband and I visited our relatives.  So sorry that I couldn't identify the name of the flower.  I was so fascinated to see the butterfly "Common Bluebottle; aosuji-ageha" along side the road near the flower♫♫♫  It was drinking water with its mouth (shape like a straw).

Thank you very much for stopping by and   your sweet comments;
My busy  summer(summer holiday of school students) is  finally over♪
So Sorry for my Absence!!!

    Lovely flowers and butterfly. Colors of Common Bluebottle are so gorgeous!
    I forgot it was going back to school time in Japan :-)
    Have a wonderful new week, Miyako san! xo

  3. Thank you for sharing the videos of the illuminations - it helped me understand and appreciate the true beauty of this display - gorgeous!

  6. A wonderful Post for Mosaic Monday -
    I enjoyed your Post so much.

    Wish you a good Week!

  7. Beautiful photos as always, Orchid. How wonderful to be able to capture the butterfly drinking through the straw"!
    Happy Mosaic Monday.

  8. The light / illumination show you visited must have been an overwhelming & magic experience. Great photos & videos. The butterfly is so beautifully graphic, modest in colors but so stylish. I think the white flower is Cleome hassleriana, cultivated in Finland as annual in summer plantings. Happy MM!

  9. Oh to see that kind of butterfly in person. That streak of blue must be to help hide itself as it feeds. The botanical garden display is beautiful. Thanks for sharing.

  10. Dear Miyako,
    What a great show of illuminations you enjoyed. There are such talented people who put these things together.
    The butterfly is beautiful, and the photos so lovely. I didn't see very many butterflies around my garden this past summer.
    Have a wonderful week,


  11. Your images are gorgeous, as always, Orchid! Thanks for sharing with us.

  12. Wow lovely and beautiful
    Please tell something about my captures on my blog.

  13. Such a lovely close up of the butterfly drinking. The turquoise on its wings are beautiful. Thank you for sharing your visit to the Botanical Garden illuminated. Visiting from Maggie of Normandy Life.

  14. Dearest Miyako,
    The illumination is spectacular and I wish I could have been with you to see it with my own eyes. Loved the videos and of course all of your photos.
    Sending you hugs,

  15. Miyako, the name of that flower is Cleome. I grow it here in Kentucky, in my flower garden. My mother-in-law always called it a spider lily. Thank you for linking up today!

  16. Love the flowers and butterfly. Enjoy your weekend.

  17. Wow! The garden illumination is just magical! Love the lady's silhouette too. Wonderful flower and butterfly photos. Have a lovely weekend!

  18. Hello, Miyako,
