WHITE HERON FLOWERS.

We went to see white heron flowers to Showa memorial park in the suburbs of Tokyo.



These flowers belong to the orchid family.


It is said these flowers would grow only in Korea,Taiwan and Japan.


These flowers would come to full bloom in August.


It is not so difficult to cultivate these flowers.




I found these flowers from You Tube.


These flowers in Bonsai.



Thanks for visiting this post.

     可憐で とても美しい花ですね。 憧れます!!
    花を愛するお気持が どのお写真からも伝わってきます。
    我が家の庭は今や ねこじゃらしが生い茂り、猫は大喜び、犬はおかまいなしで
    闊歩するという かなり情けない状況です。 
    少し秋らしくなってきましたね。

  6. What marvelous photos of the orchids, they do look amazingly like heron in flight. They give a sense of motion, and birds flying through jungles.

    2. Konnichi-wa, Minoru-san!
      I've been twice in Tokyo (August 2009 and 2012) to give support to our Japanese colleagues (situated at Ota-ku), but I assume we didn't met there when I was strolling with my camera through Asakusa, Shibuya, Shinshuku and the many other interesting Cities of Tokyo! Maybe next time... (I was the German with the NIKON DSLR... ;-)

    4. 有り難うございます arigatō gozaimasu, Minoru-san!
      I'll give you a call when planning my next trip to Tokyo...
      ...but in the meanwhile my Japanese colleagues are well-trained, so that there's not too much hope for a third trip to Japan. New Japanese colleagues joining the (German) company come to me to Germany for a basic training in work- & toolholding as well as robot grippers. --> http://www.jp.schunk.com/schunk/index.html?country=JPN&r=1

    They look so alive like white birds flying or a lady doing ballroom dancing.

  50. ご無沙汰しております。
    サギソウ、綺麗に撮られてますね。昨年近所の方が鉢にサギソウを育てておられ、私がカメラ好きなのを知って、珍しい花なので、是非写真に撮ってくださいと、声をかけて下さいました。カメラを持って行きましたが、わずかな風でゆれて、うまく撮れませんでした。
    やっと過ごしやすくなって来ました。9月からまたブログに戻ります。Minoruさんの以前のポストも訪問させて頂きますね。

      こんばんは。ありがとうございます。 最近涼しくてとても助かっています。 いよいよ、ブログに復帰ですか、楽しみにしています。
       8月になると、何処かでサギソウが咲いていないか、気になります。昭和記念公園にイベントがありましたので、無理して出かけました。
       サギソウの撮影が出来なくて残念でしたね。
