Calligraphy, Nature & Mother's Day;

Ube Genyu Calligraphy Exhibition
Close to the end of last month, we went to see Calligraphy Exhibition to the city Cultural Hall. I missed to take pictures while the head of the association explaining the works:-)  It is always intriguing to hear about the way how the calligraphers aimed their works to be and so on.






*My first Bird and Plant
When driving back the usual river side from shopping, so surprised to see the Grebe was diving in and coming up. Unfortunately, it was moving fast and not so close. But I was fascinated with my first sweet birdie♫♫♫
Really wished that it stayed the same place longer for me to take more photos.
While my husband was taking our first road to the friend's house, he said he could see flowers of  "Spikenard", we call the plant Udo in Japanese.  I remember I didn't like the dish as it tasted a bit bitter p;-)
pictures below are from pc's  picture page 


*Happy Mother's Day '2018'  
Because of the cake shop's decoration for this day, I don't have to talk my husband into to take me there p;-)   Sometimes he worries my having sweets much.

She was with us until year 2,000;
My favorite picture in the different frame(*^.^*)
I really AM  Thankful for my mother 

Wish you will have sweet mother's day;
Tomorrow, I'll attend the memorial service of 49th-day after my cousin's death who had orange orchard.  See You after I come back from the service.

Spring Peony festival at the City Park and Birds;


Beautiful varieties of Peonies
On April 21st, my friend and I went to see rare peonies exhibited at the city park. Enjoyed the varieties of colors with matching names with them. Japan used be called 'Jipangu'; yellow colored one may be quite rare.  link from Jan. post.
I  feel Thankful for the staff 's hard work♪

Pelicans in the lake of the Park
I was happy to see the baby got a little older than when we visited there this Jan. I'll skip the explanation about "Cutta-kun" of the brown statute pelican from Calcutta.  Link  from my blog.



Pale Thrush and Dusky Thrush
First two collages of the Thrushes were from early March before the tree in front of my house got Green with Leaves. And the other day when we were going home from shopping, we found Dusky Thrushes were chasing the farmer getting ready for rice planting looking for food.



Recently, we were given many bamboo-shoots from our neighbors and friend. I was really shocked that I got red eczema on my face. I had to give up one of my favorite seasonal food (^^;) Take Care of yourselves and hope you will have a happy May♪
