Performed at Nursing Home, Orchid and Bulbul;


Performed at Nursing Home
On 7th this month, band group my husband involves was invited to play at a nursing home and played two times changing halls. At first hall, we could see audiences were mainly from outside the hall not only some residents.
The band member played hoping that all the audience had some enjoyable and relaxing time.
      Second place must be a dining room; staffs were watching the residents carefully.


The title of this music is "spring of north country".  This type of music is from popular song called "Enka, 演歌" which is Japanese balladic song and sung with a type of vocal ornamentation called "kobushi".  This is the link that the original singer was singing the song many years ago.

Found  "Orchids" at the biggest hotel in my city
At the end of last month, my friend and I went to the hotel to join an event. When we entered the hotel, found these potted Orchid Flowers close to the front desk.

Brown Eared Bulbul
These bulbuls were seen on the tree in from of my house late winter this year. Let me use these pictures not posted yet. I thought I captured a good moment in a photo ;-)

Hand-Made Stretch Board, First birds and Orchids;


Handmade stretch Board
My husband made this Stretch Board for me about 10 years ago when we saw TV program featuring about the importance of having our back stretched for our health.  This treasure :-) had been in the closet since a little later.  A few days ago, a doctor was explaining on TV how we can stretch our back exercising by standing and straightening our legs against wall.  I remembered this Board and my husband varnished over it looking new, haha.  

The screw makes its height can be adjusted. 
So "Thankful" for my husband♪

From the National Park
Eurasian teal or common teal (Anas crecca).  The duck with the greenish line on its face (left in the picture) is called "American little duckamerica-kogamo;" in Japanese. The pc-site of the natural park said that this particular duck can be seen really rarely in Japan. Although the pictures were all taken far from inside the observatory, I was happy to be able to see this sweet duck first time♪ 
At a really far place we could find 2 nests of "Grebe" .   One has little babies there and the other has egg(s). 
Another my first bird Black-browed reed warbler from very far But made me happy finding it♪ 


Orchid pictures from the City Park
I still have some orchids' pictures which wasn't posted from The Exhibition at city park some years ago.  Let me post two of them here.

New Calligraphy from husband's ex-lady colleague
The other day, my husband was given New Calligraphy in his hobby room from his ex-lady colleague. The phrase written on this work is appropriate for coming summer♪  Sorry if my translation sounds funny.
      "Balloon; get on the wind and fly fluffy"

Bird. Dragonfly and Flower 
In the middle of this month, I found Bubulcus Ibis in the rice paddy close to my house. 

My first Scarlet Skimmer perching on the pole same day p;-)

The pictures of Silver Wattle below was taken early April blooming in the park near my house.  I thought the color matches with  the Dragonfly.
