Fields of dreams...

 By: cshimokita : August 5th, 2022-01:18

walking in the wilds of Nagano Prefecture...

01) Having an ice cream at the カフェ オンブラージュ (Cafe on the links), overlooking the 軽井沢プリンスホテルゴルフコース (Karuizawa Prince Hotel Golf Course)...

02) 高峰高原 (Takamine Highland) at 2,000m, enjoying the fresh air and view even with the clouds hanging a little low...

03) A farmer checking his fields near Karuizawa, Nagano Prefecture...

Thanks for looking,

I like #3. A reminder of where food comes from, and the sometimes fragile dependencies a farmer lives with.

The fresh vegetables in Nagano are a real treat...

much better than the store bought in the big city... we have a small veg garden behind the house... it will be much bigger next year \(ツ)/ Casey .

And I am drawn to number two — the lavender colored wild flowers. Calming.

I have to do some photos of our yard... all the flowers and trees that we have had planted, it's taken some time, but it's really lovely (IMHO). Casey .

I have visited the Japan Northern Alps in both winter and summer...

very close, it's a part of Nagano that I haven't visited recently... although we can see the snow capped peaks. Casey .
