Trees in our garden were Pruned and Birds;

*Our Garden looks a little Better*
Our gardener who used to be my late brother's friend came late last month. My late brother introduced him after seeing his wonderful job to our parents' garden  (they both are also deceased and the house is owned by new family now.) 
We had pine trees till some years ago, but they were dead because of weevil damage. Maintaining pine tree in good shape sure must require expertise. He helps us regularly every year; we truly appreciate his good job.
*First two pictures are "After and Before"*
*This picture with pine trees was taken 5 years ago,  which I posted here.* 
*From the recent captures of Birds* 
My husband whimsically takes me to the usual rice paddy. These pictures are from middle and late last month, when rice reaping has just started. Yes, their sweet faces always give me warm feelings.

Performed at the local Nursing Home and Birds;


*Performed at the Local Nursing Home*
Late last month, the band group my husband involves was invited to perform for the cultural gathering held at the next city's nursing home. At the last of this event the elderly people gathered there sang a couple of songs together with the five members. It was a lovely autumn music day.

They played 3 songs sung by Yuzo Kayama (82 years old).
 He is a famous Japanese popular musician, singer-songwriter and actor.
These are the 3 links of the songs sung by himself. AB

Other Performances we enjoyed ♪
The musical instrument on the right picture is called "尺八. shakuhachi"
I thought I should have tapped the sound of it and the way it played.



Birds I could take pictures in the middle of last month;
These pictures were taken from the usual rice paddy my husband takes me on our way or way back from the commodity shopping. 
First two birds are Flycatcher and Meadow Bunting

Halloween Decoration and Birds;


*Halloween Decoration from Bank*
My husband had a phone call from a former lady colleague kindly teachings us about this Halloween Decoration. And she proudly told us that this decoration won the first price among the contest between the affiliated banks.
Happy to see that my husband had a nice chat with his former colleagues.

*Another LOVELY birds from the Rice Paddy *
I always wish to have someone who has good knowledge about the types of birds ;-)
Maybe kinds of flycatchers are migrating here ♪
This one made me wonder what she or he was doing on top of the big weed.
I could take short video of this sweet one.
