Inakadate Murals

Just received these photographs from a collegue in Japan
The farmers create the murals  by planting little purple and yellow-leafed Kodaimai rice along with their local green-leafed Tsugaru, to create the colored patterns in the time between planting and harvesting in September.

The murals in Inakadate cover 15,000 square meters of paddy fields.
Pity they are not visable from Google Earth.
Similiar to the Maize Mazes in the UK and USA (search Google earth for Maize Maze, dozen or so in the UK on google earth)

Certainly an improvement on crop circles anyway!!
Experience; is something you gain, just after you needed it most.

When faced with two choices, simply toss a coin. It works not because it settles the question for you. But because in that brief moment while the coin is in the air. You suddenly know what you are hoping for.
