Back from Japan

Written on October 6, 2010

…with wonderful new threads.   Here’s a glimpse of late summer/ early autumn in Japan–gold-colored rice paddies studded with stunning red higanbana, a Japanese tiger lily.

These photos were shot in Asuka, the site of one of Japan’s earliest historical periods,  during which Buddhism was introduced from Korea.

    Hi Stephen,
    I am glad of your safe homecoming.
    It is called “Red Spider Lily” in the United States. The same family as ‘Nerine’.
