Nature is wonder;

      *My neighbor's pomegranate tree and fruits*
To tell the truth, I've never had its fruits :-)  My first wonder today, I think I should try how it's tastes. I thought they are not ripened well as they haven't opened yet.



      *The different color of the beak*
The Egret's beak I posted here had black part and this one I found the other day didn't. This page showed the detail about the Egrets (sorry about the Japanese page). Oh, it seems really complicated p;)  I must read again later as the Egrets is the main bird I can take pictures.  I guess the net is for the purpose of protecting the stones from fallen off. And I presume the mound is far better than the concert one. (sorry for the bad pictures)






       *Alongside of the big road*
Actually this old house still sits alongside of the big road for many decades. Trees are helping it from collapsing. I wonder who was the owner and why no one have bought the convenient place.



  Linking this post to "Nature Notes", "Wild Bird Wednesday" and Rubish Tuesday.

Thank you very much for stopping by; Always wishing to find more time to see you!

Hello Miyako!:) Very nice pictures. Ripe Grapefruit is delicious eaten chilled and in segments, but because of it's acidic nature, it may be an aquired taste for a first try.I like it halved, sprinkled with sugar, and then grilled in its case until it's golden brown on top. The pink fruit is the sweetest!
Warm Hugs!:)

Hello Miyako,, We see the Great Egret here and I have never noticed the black on the tip of the Great Egret. That is different..You have some awesome shots of the egret.. I think the house needs some loving care.. Have a happy day and week!

My parents used to have a pomegranate tree but to be honest I've never cared much for its taste. Too many seeds I find.

I wish that pomegranates grew in my back yard. YUMMM Tom The Backroads Traveller

I've never seen a pomegranate tree before. The egret is a beauty.

Roan said...

My little finger hit enter before I finished my comment. :) Love how the greenery taking over. Nice find!

Laura said...

Beautiful photos… I love pomegranates and the egrets are so majestic!

Amy Burzese said...

I've never seen a pomegranate growing either. Thanks for sharing!

EG CameraGirl said...

I wish I could grow pomegranates here! I like eating them.

McGuffy Ann Morris said...

Beautiful pictures of the fruit! I love the vines on the building, too.

TexWisGirl said...

i do not like pomegranite, myself. :) i LOVE the egrets, however. and neat to see a decaying old house from you! they seem so common here but interesting to see them there.

Linda Kay said...

Looks like the building needs a major facelift, maybe a bulldozer to take it down to build something nicer? Love the majesty of the egret. And I have never seen the pomegranate on a tree either. Thanks for the pics.

I have never eaten a pomegrante .

I think your egret pictures are wonderful Miyako.

Tell you hubby the name of my ugly THING is an assassin bug. they have an ominous name but apparently are beneficial to gardeners.

Gail Dixon said...

What's wrong with your egret shots? I think they're wonderful. Maybe the younger Great Egrets have black on the beak. The Snowy Egret has a black beak and yellow feet, but it is a smaller bird. I so enjoy seeing where you live. Keep the images coming and have a great week!

Breathtaking said...

Miyako, Have only just realized that I made a mistake when I commented before. Where was my brain!!:)) I am so sorry! Ofcourse your photos showed pomigranites,which I find a little insipid, and difficult to eat. Your Egret captures are fine, and the dilapidated house will remain a mystery I guess, but sad to see an abode so neglected and unloved.

orchid Miyako said...

Good Morning, Dearest Sonija;
I just woke up, my friend. Thank you SO much for your comments. Oh, insipid tastes. I have a sweet tooth so it might be safe not to try, haha. But funny enough, I CAN eat or BEAR the sour taste of grapefruits and yes I sometimes sprinkle sugar, too :-)

Sending you Lots of Love and Hugs from Japan, xoxo Miyako*

I have never eaten a pomegrante.
On the tree these fruits look beautiful ! Great photos !
Greetings :)

Hi Miyako san. I've never tried pomegranate when I lived in Japan. I had no idea they could grow just like that, in the neighborhood! In the US, I tasted but it was pomegranate-flavored juice and not actual fruit. I didn't like juice so much, but I should give a try to actual fruit!
The egret is very cute. I checked the link. I didn't know there are many different kinds of egrets!
Oh the old house reminds me of Hobbit house!

Have a wonderful week, Miyako san!

Mariette VandenMunckhof-Vedder said...

Dearest Miyako,
Guess those pomegranates will be ripe around November, they still have some time to go. It is a SUPER FOOD and very, very healthy. But can be quite messy to open up for getting its seeds out. We have two young trees, not yet with fruits...
Lovely egret photos too and it is hard to identify great egrets and great white herons... I might have labeled mine wrongly too?!
But as long as we enjoy taking photos of them it is fine.
Hugs,
Mariette

I like your photos of the egret. We don't have them here, but I have seen a whooping crane in northern Ontario once. We put netting over our fish pond to keep the herons from stealing our goldfish and shebunkins. I think you're right that the wire cage is there to hold the rocks in place (although it looks like it's sagged a bit over time). The old house is curious ... I wonder if the trees/vines were removed, the house would fall down! Enjoy the rest of the week! Wendy x

This is a very elegant bird and fantastic shots of it. Great fences and reflection of the Egret

ladyfi said...

What a lovely old house and wonderful egret shots.

Gunilla Bäck said...

The egret is a very beautiful and elegant bird. Big hugs from Finland!

Marie said...

I'm not a huge fan of pomegranates, but these are lovely pictures. Love your crane shots.

Rambling Woods said...

Hello Miyako! Nature is wonder! I do like the taste of the fruit minus all the seeds. I love your egret photos. Photos are for memories and they don't have to be perfect in order to share the joy you had taking them. Michelle from Nature Notes..

I love those photos of the elegant-looking egret, Miyako. It looks like nature is reclaiming the space where the old house stands.

janiceadcock said...

Lovely egrets. The home was somebody's dream once upon a time.

Sallie (FullTime-Life) said...

Oh pomegranates are good for you but so darn hard to eat and so messy. Too much work for what you get in my opinion. They sure are pretty growing though.
