Dragonflies from the Fallow Field;

*Two kinds of Dragonflies we found recently*
The other day, we were driving around without any specific place to find critters. 
All of a sudden; after about 15 minutes drive, this fallow field in front of the temple appeared for us.  My dragonfly lover husband knew these places are the ones we can find them and he was RIGHT.  We found some of them flying around ;-)
Although we found some Damselflies (we call 'thread dragonfly') as well, they are too tiny to catch with camera for us.
This male dragonfly is called *Lyriothemis* 

We also found this colorful (reddish) one♪ 
Male *Scarlet Skimmer*

Thank you so much for stopping by.  

I always appreciate your sweet comments.

Hoping everyone has no trouble from recent problem;

Variety of Roses from Two Places;

*From Ejio-Park*
On 18th, we visited Ejio-park again to see roses; it seems this park became our regular flower viewing spot. There were many people enjoying them even from far prefectures; my husband was checking car numbers ;-)




 *From our City Air-Port*
Last Thursday, we stopped by our city airport after finishing an errand. My cousin showed me two pictures of rare rose through cell-phone which I've never seen before.





Roses above and below were the same ones, although pictures below were taken by my cousin earlier than mine above.  I've never seen this kind of type before.
Thank you so much for stopping by.  I always appreciate your sweet comments;
Hoping everyone's life is not so difficult one ;

3 Types of Sliding-Screen & changed paper;

*Three Types of Sliding Screen in my house*
You might be already familiar with these from somewhere or from my former post
We haven't renewed the paper type of the sliding screen since then. Let me introduce three different types of them in our really small house again.  
This page shows you beautiful variety of Japanese sliding door. 
    
 First one Fusuma-type  (Fusuma 襖) 
As this type has ready-made design, we ask professionals to change the papers. Two of them on the right side are the sliding ones and bedding are in there. For left side one, we pull to open. This room is connected with next room.

  Second one Glass-type (glass fitted shoji; just called shoji)
We call second one and third one "Shoji 障子".  This shoji separates two rooms.
Third one Paper-type (paper fitted shoji; just called shoji)
Pictures of paper type shoji we've changed papers. I might be able to show you how terrible these were, haha decided not to.


                  How the changing paper work came out.
The work took almost whole day for us ;-)
Pictures above are from only downstairs, we've changed 8 of them.
If we try to change paper by ourselves, we buy them from "do-it-yourself store"; they are rolled to make the work of putting them on the frame work of shoji "障子" easier.  The pictures on the left are the one we bought. Normally changing after 5 years should be the standard or the best. 9 years has past since we changed them last. 
As I said, ours were such terrible condition and couldn't wait p;-)

Pictures of the Changing Work;



    How lucky "Common Bluebottle" came to suck water of the paper♪
