Flower Photo: Hydrangea in Izumi Okinawa, Japan

What a day it turned out to be!  It started with rain but, we had several hours of sunshine today.

Another big surprise was the Hydrangea Flowers up in Izumi are still blooming. 

I thought for sure the typhoon would have wiped them out.

The hills were crawling with people. You could hardly get a photo without tourists popping into the frame. 

So, I shot a few with people in them. 

Look at that dude, smiling up there. Hah ! 

I almost cropped the girls out of the photo so I could title it "Find Herman" or "One of These Things is not Like the Rest" but, that'd be mean.  Shucks.

There are plenty more photos being processed but, this is it for today. I'm hoping the weather gurus are correct and we'll have sun again tomorrow. 

If I can manage to find a link or map to post for anyone interested in going up to see the Hydrangea of Izumi Okinawa I'll getterdun.  Then, I'm outta here.

Enjoy your weekend, wherever you are.  That's my plan.  SOLAR POWER, baby.  Gotta love it !

Here's a link with directions for anyone on Okinawa who wants to DRIVE UP THERE.

Hello! Long time no see! Those mopheads are so pretty. You're lucky to be in a place with so many amazing flowers. Haha, I hope next season my hydrangeas are as blue and as over-flowing with flowers.

Hi. It has been awhile so, I looked at your blog and see you've been busy, too.
It'll take me some time, but, sooner or later I'll post a few millon more of those mopheads. That's just a sampling; there were gazillions of them, all over the hills!

Well, the deadness of that blog does make one believe so. But I'd say it's more of a case of laziness. If I come online or sit near the computer, the work I have pending will only intimidate me.
But you do put those on here soon and I hope there are some pink and red ones. And since you're photos and words are a treat to my eyes, thought I'd share something as well though it's not much, < It's my baby mophead!
