The Greenhouse beside Hanabito Field @ Furano Farm Tomita [Hokkaido, Japan]

A standalone greenhouse right behind a field filled with blooming flowers of vivid colors - it just had that special draw for you to take a closer look. 

Which we did after having a slice of Furano melon

Frankly, i don't understand the need for a greenhouse at Farm Tomita when the view outside was way more spectacular. In comparison, taking photos in the greenhouse didn't quite elicit that much of ane excitement. 

Lawson cypress, airplane plant, geranium flowers; be honest with me, did they wow you? In all fairness, they were beautiful but i doubt they make your eyes twinkle. 

Even the passion flower plant was devoid of flower. 

And there are only so many flowers i would want to take close up. Should i do that at Farm Tomita or even at Shikisai-No-Oka (四季彩の丘), i will need a lot more time! 

Nevertheless, a customary shot would still be nice and i had our usual model, Alex, standing at the wooden stake bearing the Farm Tomita name with tiny clusters of lavender flowers in front of him. 

There's a reason why i have the greenhouse as a separate post and it's not just to lament how boring it was; instead, the location of the greenhouse should be remembered by all who would be visiting the farm. 

Its location provides an amazing view of the Hanabito field with the backdrop of the towering trees, the Hanabito House and the mountains. Don't believe me?

Take a look at the above! 

Angle of the lens plays a very important part; contrast the above with the picture before it and you would have noticed that the lavender portion appeared a lot denser in the second one. I didn't photoshop anything; i merely bent a little lower and zoomed in closer to give the false impression that the family of four was buried in the midst of lavender flowers.

Last pic - butterfly collecting nectar from the lavender flowers.
