*How is the weather in your place?
All morning today we had an unusual heavy snowfalls here in Yamaguchi-pref. where is a bit south part of Japan. We planned to visit my aunt and father, but snowed in. I took pictures of my small garden with snow from the window. Haha, I hope you can see the falling snow with my poor pictures.


  1. Congratulations on your new award, Miyako and to the five blogs selected by you to receive the same. Your snowy garden looks absolutely beautiful! I do hope you will be sharing some spring pictures of your garden with us. Here, it's hot and windy today. We are really needing some rain, but nothing is forecast for several days ahead. Stay warm and snug!

  2. Congratulations on your award - it is very well deserved :))
    That is some snowfall you have had - it does look pretty but not fun if you are unable to go out.
    Take care and stay warm.

  3. Congratulations on an award that is going to the perfect recipient! So happy for you, my friend!

    We have had unseasonably warm weather here. In the heart of winter, we are having a heat wave and yesterday had to have the air conditioner on with all ceiling fans going full blast. I hope your snow lets up soon!

  4. Congrats on your award and thank you for sharing it with me! You are a pure joy to me and I enjoy reading your blog...traditions, your funny moments with your husband, and just your heart shared with us "who enjoy you so much"....once again thank you for the lovely award ...

  5. Congratulations on your award and thank you for thinking of me as one of the five you wished to share it with. I feel very honored. Your garden looks quite beautiful with all of the snow. I love the way snow makes things look but prefer to view it from inside a warm place. Your photos look like they were shot with black and white film which gives everything a stark cold look to it. Perfect! Stay in doors and stay warm my dear friend. xoxo

  6. Congratulations on your award, Miyako, and it is a coincidence but I have received this award a couple of weeks ago. I decided to become an "award and tag free" blog. I have a little something on my sidebar. But I appreciate the thought very much.

    I enjoyed hearing about your brother's birds. xo

  7. I can't believe the snowfall there, it looks pretty though. We are having springlike weather, I don't know how long it will last. xo

  8. Miyako- You have more snow than I do up in Canada! Our snow has melted the last week. There is just a little left on the ground but lots of it on the mountains.
    Thank you so much for the award. It is very kind of you to give it to me. Love to you and your husband.

  9. Ooh! I love big fluffy snow like that. We don't get snow very often where we live, but when it does, it's usually the big fluffy kind like yours. Enjoy it! Love and hugs to you!

  10. Your snow filled garden looks amazing Orchid,
    but I am hoping that the snow stays your side of the water as I don't really want it this year!!!

    Congrats on your award
    and I must say it was well deserved.

    I am busy playing catch-up
    but being honest don't think I will ever catch up on all I have missed!!

    Glad to be back reading your lovely blog.
