This is a photo of a rice field in Japan.As far as I know, the red flower borders are just that, borders.There's a bit of a legend about these red flowers which are strangelyconsidered bad luck, though they are found around harvest time in Japanese rice fields everywhere...Happy WW everyone!
Thanks so much for the explanation. The border really makes this an amazing photo! happy ww to you...
That's a beautiful field. I wonder if those flowers serve some botanical purpose--perhaps they are bad luck for the bugs. This is a stunning photo.
Nice picture, Mariposa!My post is up too (here). I will now sit and wait to see if I can make it to be first in the website's linky for fourth week in a row! :-)
This is a striking photo. I love the red flowers running through the fields.
