Sale of Japanese style Summer Clothes etc;

Sale of summer clothes of  "crepe, ちりめん chirimen"
Let me show you "summer style clothes sale" at one of the small corner of the department store.  Luckily, the staff permitted me to take pictures. These are not silk crepe but cotton one. I found some senior looking women trying to check them.  

Recently I found 2 kinds of heron on the same day. In the uncultivated rice paddy under the high way, a Grey Heron was enjoying its lunch. Pink Thistles were flowering alongside the road. Later during making detour on our way home, there was a Great heron in the Koto river. Walking very slowly p:-)

             This Skinny heron was walking very slowly in the river.  

When I visited city park (previous post), I also took pictures of hydrogen there. Although the flower is like a symbol of rainy season, we haven't had rain since this month. I remember my mother sweetly said this phrase to me  (like a song) "pain pain go away" when I had a slight injury. Wish to say "rain rain come to us". 

Fingers crossed not to have water rationing.

Happy father's day everyone; on our way back from shopping, we stop by grave yard.  Even though  it's not the "Equinox Day" which is the day we visit family graves.
  Wish to be more faithful to friends...;  Have a wonderful coming new week.

The summer tops are really pretty Miyako, did you buy some?
The flowers and herons are great too, I enjoyed the short video clip of the slow walk :)

The clothes you showed are lovely, I saw a couple that I might buy! The heron mosaics are great, liked the one walking slowly, thanks for showing what goes on around you all those many miles away from Europe so different to the way of life here in France.

That black & white outfit in the first photo is just like made for me! The heron photos are excellent, not to mention the gorgeous hydrangeas! Have a lovely week Miyako <3

Miyako - I also liked the black and white outfit in the first photo. We are currently on holiday in the UK, and the other night a very large crane landed on the hillside opposite our holiday cottage. Unfortunately, it flew away before I could get a picture. Glad you were able to get such fabulous photos!

Beautiful clothing Miyako, it's always nice to have a smart top!
Lovely to see both types of Heron... I think their long necks are sweet. Thank you for providing the video.
Such gorgeous Hydrangea and in beautiful colours.
Have a really happy week. Cheers and greetings from Australia 🐨 xx

Miyako, Lovely patterns on the blouses. Cute heron walking slow. You sure take beautiful photographs of the flowers. I had a slight injury too. Singing does make a person feel ten times better than being grumpy about it.

Those clothes look beautiful. Chirimen is so light, I think it's the perfect fabric for summer! Love the video of heron walking in the river. He is walking really slowly! Looks like enjoying each step :-)
Hydrangea flowers are so pretty. What a sweet memory with your mom and the phrase :-) Have a wonderful day, Miyako san!

Sales are always good! Also enjoy the heron and all the hydrangeas you posted. Also, saw you linked up to All Seasons, but ... you forgot to link on the linky list! I should have checked here on Monday ...oh well, if you went to refer to this post for next week, it's okay with me:):) Have a great weekend!

A beautiful post, as usual :)
Fascinating slow-walking!

The clothing is lovely! We have Heron's here, but not too often. Thank you for linking up!

Dearest Miyako,
You have so much beauty to show here!
The Chirimen fabric looks so beautiful and I love its special weave too.
Your Grey Heron photos are lovely, with the Pink Thistles and also the Skinny Heron, wading through the water.
Gorgeous Hydrangeas, they must be very happy with the climate!
Sending you hugs and may the rain soon arrive. We got plenty.
