They are just like flying saucers.
Please enjoy :-)
I have never reblogged my own post, but this post is one of the best I like and I would like to share it again!

Both Biei and Furano are located in Hokkaido, Japan. For the love of flowers, we flew thousands of kilometers to Sapporo in Hokkaido and, from there, we rented a car equipped with GPS and set out to pursue our flowers and trees. We drove hundreds of kilometers to Biei and Furano. One thing we particularly looked forward to was viewing of the lavender fields.
Biei (美瑛町) is famous for its views of wide fields and hills. The bright colours of its fields attract thousands of visitors in the summer. Furano (富良野市), a city in the southern reaches of Kamikawa Subprecture, is well-known as a tourism destination famous for its lavender fields.
Driving further afield, what caught our eyes were rows and rows of carefully planted flowers in multi-colors arranged like a beautiful rainbow.

I don’t know whether I would ever publish a book.
If I do so, it will be a book on my travels.
This photo will be my cover to the book.
Have seen many photos of the Great Wall before – many of them have a hazy background, and, may be a bit of green hills.
I like this photo as it shows the color foliage in the background, not much haze, a beautiful fortress, the wall snaking up the hills and not many visitors.
I count myself blessed on that afternoon to be hiking on this stretch of the Great Wall – the Mutianyiu.
It was the best of time!
Buildings wrapped up with photos and paintings?
HONG KONG — One of this city’s first-ever public art installations has been unveiled, courtesy of Louis Vuitton and artist Richard Prince, who has wrapped the Hong Kong Museum of Art with enlarged replicas of pulp-fiction novel covers.
The installation, which takes its theme from Prince’s “After Dark” series, heralded a significant exhibition of paintings, photographs and video installations collectively called “Louis Vuitton: A Passion for Creation” that was displayed inside the Museum of Art.
Located along the Tsim Sha Tsui promenade, the Museum of Art is one of Victoria Harbour’s most recognizable landmarks. Prince has covered the entire exterior with printed fabrics featuring bright colors and animated graphics. Each panel illustrates after-midnight stories in different cities around the world, with every other panel representing Hong Kong After Dark. The images are created using “rephotography,” a process Prince described as “resemblance more than reproduction. A rephotograph is essentially an appropriation of what’s already real about an existing image and an attempt to add on or additionalize this reality onto something more real — a virtuoso reality.”
Photos are from my friend CP Chan.
Don’t think I have sufficient material to write a good book on Annecy, France.
Of course, there is the Annecy lake which is so picturesque.
If I ever write a book on Annecy, this will be my Cover photo.
The castle (which was actually a prison) stands in the middle of the waterway. Two birds were gliding past – what a sight!
