Japanese Confectionery Shop (part 2) ;

*Exhibition Hall and the Shop Corner of Sakuraan "茶蔵庵"*
     After enjoyed the garden (part 1) ←link, we entered into the hall and the shop.  

          Art works of Now and Old ☆
Sort of new art called '彫紙・choushi'  Close to 'Paper Cutout'






              
   ☆Gorgeous Restroom
I don't usually have a taste for posting rest room, 
but this one was an exception with the orchid flowers p:-)



   Tea Room and Shop Corner


For the last, I was SO amazed to see this shop has an autograph writing by 'Takasugi Shinsaku, 高杉晋作'who was from our pref. and contributed a lot for our country's Meiji Restoration. Can be a valuable historical material.

Flowers, Birds and Lunch at Cousin's house;

I've visited my cousin's house on 14th to celebrate her son's marriage at the end of this month. And then on our way home, checked the flowers in our city park :-) 
(So sorry the long post. Pictures in the frames are mine.) 

*Water Lilly and Rhododendron*
As you can see, Water Lilly were not in full bloom. So I tried most of my pictures with zoom.  Rhododendron's were at their best then♪



*Birds*
I was really happy to be able to take decent pictures of the sparrows for the first time. And White Clover's are adding a bit of accent, I hope p:-)



*Home Made Lunch*
My cousin kindly prepared really gorgeous lunch with both sashimi and stake for us♪ And she also has a wonderful talent arranging her cooking.

Japanese Confectionery Shop (part 1) ;

  *Sakuraan "茶蔵庵" at prefectural capital*
On 11th my friend and us drove to our prefectural capital to see the Japanese Confectionery Shop which has the large garden and Exhibition Hall.  For part 1, let me introduce the garden. One of the sweets called 'toshiro, 豆子郎’ below is our favorite.

Entrance of the "Season's Garden", ' shiki-tei 四季庭'
I'd appreciate it if you enjoy the garden enlarging the pictures :-)

Seeing the entrance from inside
Stone lantern and waterwheel

Exit of the garden

Entrance of the Exhibition Hall

On the right side of the entrance, we found old wintersweet (Chimonanthus praecox)
This old tree has a hole inside. My friend and husband were staring at it curiously.

Three kinds of Craft-Works;

 (posted; Japanese culture page)

On 10th, after I offered carnations for my parents' grave and the altar in their empty house, I visited the exhibition at the gallery;

*Pottery*
     Two artists happened to be there;
  • These lovely birds up there are chopstick rest♪


These are dish plates and I thought the black color brings out the flavor of the meal. 


*Woodwork*


Dyed Fabric*

                                          For the last, cyclamen from my old picture file;

Wisteria Flower etc;

This third, I could stop by our city park to check the Wisteria flower, sadly it must be a bit late and hadn't been beautifully blooming.  The first picture is from last year and the rest of them are from this year. You may notice the differences :-)


This Sheltie below was enjoying walk right beside the Wisteria Trellis and luckily I could ask her mom to take pictures.  Oh, how I wish to have this breed of dog!  As my Tony (my old post about my furry baby), surprise gift from my husband, eased my heart after long infertility treatment.  Does anyone loved to watch Lassie series?
This lovely 15 years old girl is called Sally. The owner looked like with my generation and as I guessed she was named after the cartoon called "Sally the Witch". I had a sweet talk with the lady owner as well p:-)  And the wagtail I found there.
(Sorry that the sound of theme song is loud)

And for the Tex's meme, a bit western style house with fence and poppy with fence from the other place. I wonder if the Trellis can be the fence, haha.
