I'm sorry I can't help you with the names of your flowers, but they are such beautiful pictures. I really look forward to the rainy season when I'm in Japan, too, because the hydrangea are so lovely. I've been reading your blog for a while now (just recently started my own) and every time you post flower pictures I wish I had a macro lens for my camera!

wonderful color and great content...

Thank you for posting these beautiful pictures up! I've been stalking your blog for quite a bit from last year and this is the first time I'm commenting!

Thanks again! :)

The red one is indeed a kind of sweet pea (Lathyrus) but you really need to see the foliage to differentiate them.

For the blue mottled flower it looks almost like some kind of foxglove, though I'm pretty sure I'm wrong on this one.

Hi Amy,

I love your blog and visit everyday for updates. The shots of the flowers are beautiful, may I ask what kind of camera you use and if you use special lenses for those close up shots?

Amy

Skye, your blog looks great so far! That's funny, I though I was the only one who actually likes the rainy season. It's just the most beautiful time of year, everything looks better wet.
I don't have a special macro lens by the way, just a regular digital camera.

Thanks Cennia!

Yi Hwa, thanks for coming out of lurkdom and commenting!

Thank you Sean! I'll check out the foliage next time I see the sweat peas. The other one seems to be Mazus pumilus, but thanks for the guess.

Cindy, thanks for the compliments. Most of these are taken with a Pentax Optio 550, a great camera but it's getting old and I'm having some problems with it. The lavender and yellow flower (8th picture) and the two hydrangeas were shot with my brand-new Pentax W30, which I'm less impressed with but still seems to be a good little camera. No special lenses.
