Begin July 29th
  So, on July 29th we went out to Mitake on an early morning train, took the bus to the Mt. Mitake Cable Car Station and took the Cable Car to the top of the mountain. We were hoping to find Mountain Lilies (Lilium auratum) and False Anemone (Rengeshouma in Japanese) (Anemonopsis macrophylla). We found both! The Mountain Lily was just about at its peak, but the False Anemone had barely started blooming yet. We thought we would be a bit early for the False Anemone, but we expected to find more in bloom than we found. In this row is some kind of Compositae with a butterfly on it, an amazing group of Mountain Lily buds and a nice shot of "Tiger's Tail" (Lysimachia clethroides).

  Here are 3 amazing shots of the Mountain Lily (Lilium auratum). The fragrance of this flower is so wonderful and so strong, that quite often you smell the flowers before you see them.

  Here is another Mountain Lily shot. The 2nd shot shows all of the flower buds of the False Anemone (Anemonopsis macrophylla) (Rengeshouma in Japanese) and, in third position, a shot of a single False Anemone Flower. We only found one flower at this location!

  Here is something which we did not expect to see here - an amazing patch of Hydrangea on a small side trail. We noticed this from the main trail and hiked down to get closer to it.

  In first position is another Hydrangea - a rare Red Flowered one. The 2nd and 3rd shots show better photos than on page 1 of the Iwa Tabako (Conandron ramondioides) Flower. We found these along a rock wall which has a cyclone fence laid across if to protect from falling rock and that is why you see cyclone fence in both shots, sorry, but no way around it.

  Here are links to separate web pages - all of them will open in a new window (or new tab). The first link shows some photos of our DVD Collection, an AVI Movie of our Home Theater System and 9 photos of our Sharp Aquos TV. The 2nd link shows our entire DVD collection in DVD Profiler (if you're asking yourself what might be good to rent for the weekend). The DVD's will be sorted by date purchased. You can click on the "Title" Column to sort that way if you desire. The 3rd link shows our entire DVD collection in php DVD Profiler, which is much more sophisticated than the plain vanilla DVD Profiler just above it. The 4th link takes you to a set of pages which show you the FRONT cover-art of our entire DVD collection.
