From our City Park (part 2) Event and City Character etc;

Event called "Heart of friends" at amusement park side of our city park
Our next neighbor's elementary school girl attended the event held on 16th last month.  
I have no idea about a little funny sculpture in front of the merry go around :-)  
Our city has many sculptures decorated at the various places inside the city.
                                                                               (link to my post about sculptures)
Our City flower is Scarlet Sage or Salvia;  
For flower links, Fridays Hunt(starts with S) 

Event and Characters;
As the event was for handicap people, there was a help with sign language.

*Our City’s Character “Choko-kun” *
I happened to have met 'Choko-kun' at my regular department store.  Taken its name by our famous sculptures;  in Japanese, sculpture is 'chokoku・彫刻'.  We put 'kun' when we call boys like kind of honorific with cute way.  The corner was for the local special products. The young lady was holding green tea.'茶,  cha' is Chinese character for 'tea'

Hello Miyako. I enjoyed to read about your city... The Choko-kun looks very friendly :) Your bird photos are excellent and the sage so sparkling. We are going to get our first snow today! Have a great day.

That sure is a funny sculpture in the 1st picture :-) Looks like it was a great event! Those small girls in polka dot dress are very cute! Choko-kun must be busy visiting events and department stores :-)
I love the photos of egrets and herons. Such peaceful sceneries.
Have a wonderful day, Miyako san!

Hello Miyako!:) The event looks like fun. I like the friendly characters and the carousel. Your city flower, Salvia, is such a vibrant red colour and is used a lot in our municipal gardens too. Lovely Egret and Heron shots and also fence image. Best Regards.:)

Nice fence scene and great shots of the Egret and Heron.

The scarlet salvia is beautiful! It is very interesting to see these pictures from the other side of the world!

Your City flower is beautiful -- so colorful they cheer me up! And that's what flowers are for. Your 'usual' birds are always so regal and lovely to look at (and I don't see many of these big birds here in Oregon -- not like we do when we're in Florida).

Hello, the mascot is cute. I love the salvia, it attracts the hummers here. Your Egret and Herons images are beautiful. Thank you for linking up and sharing your post. Happy Saturday, enjoy your weekend!

Su-sieee! Mac said...

Anni said...

Your bird photos are outstanding!!! Loved seeing the beautiful egrets and herons.
Thank you for stopping by to add your link to this post for us birders this weekend at I'd Rather B Birdin'. It's always greatly appreciated.

By the way, my father was an avid gardener, and he always had red salvia in his flower beds.
