Sky was blue, bright sun was out and sometimes cloud covering it in a hurry. I was under this flower and it was moving on passing wind. Moment I shot it, sun broke out from the clouds, almost blinding me. However this flower came out perfectly in the middle without me needing any crop or alteration. Except may be the colour tone :”)

Les genres Hibiscus et Althaea sont très proches, d'où la confusion fréquente et le nom vernaculaire Althéa souvent donné à cette espèce. Il est aussi appelé Hibiscus commun des jardins, Guimauve en arbre, Mauve en arbre, Ketmie des jardins, Mugunghwa en Corée (ou Rose of Althea ou Rose of Sharon en anglais).

I use 4 ways of transportations.

 

By vehicle, bus, train, and subway.

  

I use train when i go business.

 

Mugunghwa train is humane.

 

I also realized that still, in this society, many people are warm-hearted enough to share their food and room to strangers, and this changed my perspective on the society.

Quizá te busquen

porque naciste,

quizá te midan por mujer,

quizá te acosen

porque creciste,

quizá te odien por mujer,

 

pero no dejes

de ser la niña

que abraza

todo lo que hay en si,

pero no dejes de ver el mundo

como un espacio por compartir.

 

Quizá te insulten,

quizá no nazcas,

quizá te anulen por mujer,

 

quizá no llegues

a ser tú misma,

quizá te empujen por mujer,

 

pero no dejes

de ser la niña

que abraza

todo lo que hay en si,

pero no dejes de ver el mundo

como un espacio por compartir.

Fleur d'hibiscus

appelée aussi « Fleur d'éternité », (mugunghwa en coréen), elle illustre « l'esprit volontaire et modeste » du peuple coréen. Les Coréens ont prisé l'althéa comme une fleur céleste depuis le passé.

Mugunghwa arriving at Suwon Station, Gyeonggido, Korea

Hibiscus syriacus , the common garden Hibiscus, is called Rose of Sharon in North America, a name also applied to other plants. It is a flowering shrub in the plant family Malvaceae native to much of Asia. It is vase-shaped, reaching 2-4 m in height. It is also known as "Rose of Althea" and is widely planted in areas with hot summers for its very attractive white, pink, red, lavender, or purple edible flowers. It is very strong.; if cut and put in a vase, it will survive for a longer period of time than many other plants.

Hibiscus syriacus is the national flower of South Korea. The flower appears in national emblems, and Korea is compared poetically to the flower in the South Korean national anthem.The flower's name in Korean is mugunghwa . The flower's symbolic significance stems from the Korean word mugung, meaning "immortality".

 

Le specie più utilizzate come piante ornamentali sono le numerose varietà di Hibiscus syriacus, rustiche e resistenti al freddo, a foglie decidue, fioritura estiva con fiori colorati di bianco, rosa, viola e lilla, coltivate anche ad alberello molto comuni lungo le strade cittadine e nei parchi pubblici.

First off, apologies: I don't know who this mighty warrior is... the plaque was all in chinese characters so I didn't get his name... I just supposed that because of his mongolian clothings he would be a pre-Joseon warrior...

Anyway! This statue is in the middle of Seoul, in 서소문공원, this is why I am very delighted to have captured stars!!! for about 3 hours I waited under that statue and I was stricken by one thing that you don't see in that shot: around the monument is a place where homeless people try to spend the night between bushes, cops kicking them out, all types of trains (subways, KTX, mugunghwa...) and people exercising. My point is the contrast between the might and the poverty/consequenceless of these remarkable contemporains is a new face of Korea...

No se nota nada que siento debilidad por los hibiscus blancos........

It was the most common passenger train prior to the introduction of KTX in 2004 by Korail. I finally got on the train with window at the back that I always wished for. The feeling of moving backward, looking back to the infinity without knowing what is going to pass by is just stunning! Now if if has a longer deck with hand rail and an arm-chair, it would be perfect!

• ムクゲ[槿](mukuge) = 무궁화[無窮花](mugunghwa) = "Althea, rose of Sharon" (Hibiscus syriacus), the national flower of the ROK

Hibiscus Syriacus / Rosa de Siria

- Sus flores pueden ser de varios colores: blancas, rosadas, rojas, violetas, etc. Cada flor tiene una corta vida (alrededor de un día), pero como la planta produce muchas siempre pueden apreciarse varias. El período de floración va desde la primavera hasta el otoño. Es la flor nacional de Corea del Sur, apareciendo en diversos emblemas nacionales. El nombre de la flor en coreano es mugunghwa (Hangul: 무궁화; Hanja: 無窮花).

Mugunghwa flowers at Gwanghwamun Square are in full bloom (August 7, 2011)

Mugunghwa is the national flower for Korea and is a common gift in Korean weddings. Also known as "Rose of Althea" this plant can survive hot temperatures and has beautiful white, pink, red, lavender, or purple flowers. Of course if you follow my sites you know that I sell these seeds all year round. You can find them here...

• ムクゲ[槿](mukuge) = 무궁화[無窮花](mugunghwa) = "Althea, rose of Sharon" (Hibiscus syriacus), the national flower of the ROK

Having finished my tour of Daejeon, and having just learned that Barack Obama will be the next President of the United States, now I am about to head back to Seoul. This train will make the 100-mile journey in 48 minutes.

 

South Korea, following the example of Nazi Germany and post-World War II USA, invested heavily in expressways and neglected its rail system. But with the expressways and airports being jammed by the 1980s, it started its high-speed rail project in the early 1990s. By 2004, the Seoul-Daejeon-Daegu high-speed line, dubbed Korea Train Xpress (KTX), was open for revenue service, with trains operating through services to destinations further away using electrified conventional rail lines the rest of the way. Extension of the high-speed line all the way to Busan was under way, and was completed in November 2010.

 

The initial rolling stock for KTX was the French TGV, as seen here; its official Korean designation is the KTX-I while its French designation is the TGV-K. The TGV was selected, over German ICE and Japanese Shinkansen rolling stock, as part of a technology transfer agreement. The first twelve trainsets (including this one, 08) were built in France by Alstom and tested on the French domestic high-speed network, while the other thirty-four were assembled by Hyundai Rotem under Alstom license. The TGV-K is basically TGV Réseau, though with 18 passenger carriages (the longest TGV variant, alongside Eurostar) rather than the usual 8; they also lack a cafe car, as the longest KTX service has a run time of just 3 hours. I loved traveling on KTX partly due to the reminders of my past European travels on TGV trainsets.

 

From 2009 on, KTX added additional 10-car trainsets, developed indigenously by Hyundai Rotem and known as KTX-II, for service on low-demand routes that do not justify the use of these longer TGV KTX trains. The KTX-II made South Korea the seventh country in the world to own its own High Speed Rail technology (the first six were Japan, France, Germany, Sweden, Spain, and China). The KTX-II is to be submitted as one of the rolling stock candidates for California High Speed Rail.

 

The red-striped train on the next track over is not a KTX trainset, but a conventional Mugunghwa ("Rose of Sharon") grade train that is the standard South Korean intercity train.
