Sparrows, Fences and Japanese Randoseru (Ransel) etc;


Such Many Sparrows
Yesterday(on 30th) in the usual rice-paddy on our way for commodity shopping, I found so many sparrows. They were enjoying lunch just for a short while.  I vaguely remember seeing with that large number when little. Surprised me and also a bit happy being able to have a chance for the bird's post ;-)
I even took videos p:-)  First one was from inside the car. Its number got increased close to the end.  Second one is short from outside with clear image.  So sorry for the sound of the wind. It was really windy as you you can see in the videos.




Fence Topic from our Preferential Capital
On our way to our preferential capital to help public procedures for our relatives, I could take a pedestrian bridge and a highway bridge during the drive.

Gifted pictures of Spanish Jasmine
Lady keyboard player kindly sent me these pictures of Spanish Jasmine from her garden. Flowers in the glass look lovely♪

Second Semester starts Sept.1
Starts with J,  "Japanese Randoseru"  for friday's hunt and for seasons as well.
I can't say since when, we have these lovely and colorful schoolchild's satchel you can see in the picture.  Half a century ago, we only had red one for girls and black one for boys(^.^)  I remember happy having my new red one for my tiny body p:-)
We call this "Randoseru" which is originated "Ransel" in Dutch. 
My husband and I both have had cough and runny nose, 
summer cold or due to busy days. But getting better (^^;)
I hope you are having a wonderful week, See You Soon;

I am Dutch and I love the Dutch word Ransel :-) Here it once was a squarely type of backpack for soldiers. Today, many students carry their books in a modern version of the ransel. I have a vintage one. When I found the old one of my husband I sent you a photo, yes? Love also the Spanish flower and your sparrows. They are so cute, thes birds. O yes, and thank you for your answer on my question about your eyes ;) Have a fine Week!

Hello Miyako!:) Oh, so sorry you both have a cold, get well soon. I enjoyed seeing your sparrow photos and the video, and also the pretty flowers. My school satchel was made of brown leather and got very heavy when filled with books etc. Todays satchels are lightweight and so colourful by comparison.:)

We have Sparrows here year round..... lots of our other birds fly south for the winter....

TexWisGirl said...

Hello, love the cute sparrows and video. The satchel are nice. Pretty flowers.I hope you and your hubby feel better soon! Happy Thursday, enjoy your day!

Tamago said...

Awww I loved the videos so much! Rice-paddy looks like ocean with wave in the wind and sparrows are so cute swimming and eating :-)
That's a beautiful Spanish Jasmine and I love floating flowers in a glass, too!
Miyako san, I did NOT know there were more colors and different designs for Randoseru! It's eye-opening for me, really! I wonder if school children get to choose any color they like.

I hope you and your husband will get better soon. Happy September, Miyako san xoxo

Dearest Miyako, these are wonderful photos and video of interesting sights, the pretty birds and beautiful flowers. I enjoy the decorative touches very much and I also thank you for being such a good friend to Today's Flowers. I hope that you and your husband will feel much better soon, and wish you both a very happy and healthy weekend :) From your friend Denise in Virginia, USA.

Isn't it amazing, the same birds are here! Lovely photos!

Ruth Kelly said...

Loved the bridge with the large object above it. Get well.

What fun to see so many sparrows! I can see how windy it was - good thing you were not wearing a hat - it would have been blown away! I like the school satchels too - so cute! The jasmine is beautiful!

Tony McGurk said...

Spring has just started here in Tasmania so we'll start getting more birds turning up soon. Great sparrow shots & I really like the 2 bridge photos.

Margaret Adamson said...

Gosh in my day all the sachels were brown and looks very similar but I love all the colourful ones the kids have nowadays. Love seeing the Sparrows especially in that very windy video. Have a lovely weekend.

eileeninmd said...

Hello, Miyako! Your sparrows are so cute, great shots.

Thank you for linking up and sharing your post. Happy Saturday, enjoy your weekend!

Hello Miyako,
The sachels are sooo adorable. I think Japanese and Korean school kids are the luckiest kids. They have so many fun school supplies to choose from. My son just ordered a few school related items from Japan a few days ago. Have a lovely weekend Miyako. Christa

Hi..I really love those satchels...here in the US, our kids are so overwhelmed with choices it is hard to pick. Thanks for posting, hope you and hubby feel better!

Ida said...

I like the looks of the Pedestrian Bridge.
I bet that Jasmine smells as good as it looks.
Wonderful video of sparrows, it certainly was windy.
Hope you & your hubby feel better soon.

You've put such pretty frames around this precious sparrows! Enjoy your week!

Maggie said...

Such a pretty frame to your first mosaic, delightful! The sparrows must have been enjoying their feast so much it gave you the chance to capture them so well on film!
Glad you could join MM this week, hope you & your Mr. feel better again soon.

Sparrows are such happy little birds! The bridges are very different and interesting. I love jasmine of all kinds. Back to school brings so many memories. I always love the different pencils and notebooks! I still like pencils and notebooks! Ha! Happy Monday and I hope you and your husband are feeling better.

Wandering Wren said...

Well you know I always love to see the little birds - Sparrows are such chirpy little birds! I hope you are on the mend and both feeling better :)
Have a great week

Sparrows are such busy little birds, and so entertaining to watch. Your photos are great.
It's back to school time here, too. Tomorrow is the first day of classes and the students will be filling their backpacks with books and paper, pens and pencils.
Have a happy week!

Delightful post with all these sparrows! Since I've lived more than 30 years in the USA, I vaguely remembered this old-Dutch word ransel. Don't know if the elementary school kids there now know that word. They have incorporated many (Am.)English words in their vocabulary and say "backpack." Lovely contribution to SEASONS - many thanks! and hope you feel better soon!

edenhills said...

I do hope you are feeling better now. Love the sparrows! Beautiful jasmine flowers. Thanks so much for joining me for Friday's Hunt. Hope you have a great week!

Funny little sparrows! How neat to see so many of them... the flowers are beautiful. And as for the 'backpacks' which is what we would call those school bags, I would still choose the red one if I were a child! It is the prettiest color there for girls! Sometimes I think we have too many choices!!
