  6. What a beautiful pictorial travelogue. I want so badly to return to Japan...my two visits were so brief...five days once in Tokyo, then another teaching visit where I had three days in the Osaka area and three days in Akita. It saddens me to know the tragedies Japan is undergoing because of the nuclear accident.

  7. こんにちは。「中島」はどこからみても、そんなに大きな島には見えなかったのですが、鹿の親子が暮らせるなんてびっくりしました。大平原があって、丘もあるんですね。まさか売店や食堂は無いですよね。ノアザミとツユクサが可愛いです。名前はよく聞くので、関東でも見れるのかと検索してみましたが、ノアザミは日光・尾瀬・小田原でちょっと遠いのですが、ツユクサは新宿御苑でも自然教育園でも咲くみたいです。これ万葉集の月草のことですよね。今までも見てて気づかなかったのかもしれませんが、今度は気をつけて探してみます。

       こんばんは。鹿は放し飼いですが、白鳥は野生です。ツユクサが月草とは知りませんでした。ひとつ利口になりました。中島はトレッキングで2~3時間歩きました。売店も有りました。
       アザミという花は無いそうで、ノアザミとか、オニアザミ、タイアザミと沢山あります。全てを区別するのは難しいです。

  8. 確かにハンゴンの葉は「うらめしや~」のポーズですね。銀河庭園のルドベキアは地上の星のようです。

  11. ハンゴンソウは信州でも見ましたが、花に関係する言葉なのかなと思っていましたら、葉っぱですか。それにしても幽霊とはちょっと気の毒かも・・つゆ草がこんなに美しいのも発見。マクロで撮ると色や造形の美しさに改めて感動しますね。このムカゴは食べられないのでしょうね。ヤマイモのムカゴは美味しいですが。

      こんにちは。お褒めいただきありがとうございます。オニユリはムカゴを作り、コオニウリは種で増える、世の中は様々です。ハンゴンソウの葉っぱに切れ目の無いのがキオンです。可哀想な名前です。
       ツユクサは一日花です。様見ると綺麗ですね。

  17. A beautiful place, Minoru. The pink and blue hydrangea are probably more popular here than the white. I don't think I know the Asiatic dayflower. Thanks you for sharing your trip!

  26. These are all so lovely - you have such a wonderful eye - but the elegant swan, the precious deer, the vibrant purple thistle, and the breathtaking blue shade of the Asiatic dayflower - those are my favorites! :-)
