Now is mid summer in Japan..and today I would like to show some flowers which are rare to some of us..

This is called the "prawn flowers" in japanese..hehe..I don't know the english name for it...Reasons for having this name is because the flowers looks like prawns..That what the sales lady says to me when I bought this plant at the nursery...hahah..Do you think it looks like a prawn???

These red flower plants is the fortune telling plants...That is also what the sales lady told me..hahaha..

She says that if your luck is good it will turn more red..and if your luck is not so good ,it will turn light red ,then later it will turn yellowish...than..to heaven it goes...hahaha..I really can't stop laughing when the sales lady told me that..plants also can go to heaven...hahaha..


Then on my way back home,I noticed a particular type of grass growing in my friend's neighborhood..

So as usual ..I did the next best thing when I saw the house owner pruning her garden.I went over to chat with her..and I ask her what is the name of that particualr grass which is of two tones colour(yellow and green)..and to my surprise...you know what she told me???

She say it is called the "leopard grass" as the spots resemble the leopard's skin..and I politely thank her for kindness...then went back to my car ..

On the way home,I just can't stop laughing with "Today specials"..."red fortune telling flowers".."leopard grass" and in my garden "prawn flowers"..hahahaha...wonder next,what the japanese will name their plants and flowers...Hahahahaha...
