First Capture of Mandarin Duck;w Lucky I was♬

*Mandarin Duck Couple*

I was really happy for this unexpected first encounter♬ We have a saying called "Mandarin Duck Couple".  The Japanese name for the Mandarin Duck is "Oshidori", which means "beloved birds". I found this page which has beautiful pictures and great explanation about this bird. I will quote an explanation a little of this bird from the PC page. 

 In the Orient, there is a special story that the Buddha had once reincarnated as a Mandarin Duck and in Chinese culture there is the story of the “Pledge of the Mandarin Duck couple”. In Japan we have a special love for the Mandarin in art and culture.

Almost overjoyed (^.^)

Cherry Blossom of Riverside & Light-Up from City Park etc;

*Cherry Blossom of Riverside*

This elusive flowers more cherished than in Japan, being a Japanese I'm proud of Japan is the home to thousands of cherry blossom trees. The floral imagery permeates Japan is the Japanese paintings, film and poetry. Every April, families and friends across the country ceremoniously gather in large groups for *hanami flower viewing* and elaborate feasts with music under giant, feathery canopies of soft pink. Personally, I just enjoyed this wonderful seasonal flower close to my house and the frequent route for shopping like every year p;-)


Just a few minutes away from the riverside;

People were enjoying the view.
And the view from the road we get down.;

Our friend sent us these pictures with atmosphere of the dusk;
Illumination from the City Park;

Rape Blossoms from City Park, Year 2021;

*Rape Blossoms from the City Park*
Rape Blossoms from year 2021;  enjoyed the flower at the City Park called Tokiwa-Park. Approaching the flower bed, the beautiful yellow flower always makes my heart thrilled. This year, I saw a lovely young couple trolling among the flowers; the sweet scene made my heart warm ♡  
This young girl and two dogs were also enjoying nice warm spring time with the flowers.
This song starts with the Japanese word "rape field"
