quick update about father and cherry blossoms

(posted; Japanese culture)
I really wished at least one post about cherry blossoms for the year even though I am busy. I loved these two arranged cherry blossoms as I thought they have Japanese atmosphere in its arrangement.  (all pictures from PC) 

About my father
Thank you SO much for the warm comments to my former post about my father. His fever got a little lower and not a critical condition now.  He can react hearing my voice. I have been visiting him every day with hubby and wish him to have free hands at least while we are there. (he tries to take off his oxygen mask and IV).  I am not sure how long it will take  for him to start eating food. 
Well, I feel SO terrible that I still cannot read and leave comments for my friends. But I think I will be able to find time and feel up to it from tomorrow, I hope. And may not another post for a while.
I pass the bridge to and from his hospital seeing cherry blossoms on the riverside and I found this picture from PC's my city page, having a bit transient feeling like the image of the blossom.     Thank you for stopping by.


  1. I hope your father's health improves very soon. Best wishes.

  7. Hi Miyako, I am glad to read your father is improved. It does take its toll, though, so please take good care of yourself, too. The cherry blossoms are so lovely. xo

  8. Dearest Miyako,

    Good to read that your Dad's condition has stabilized somewhat!
    Take your time and meanwhile, try to enjoy the cherry blossoms, they can lift your spirit up and take your mind off the sorrow...


  9. It seems as if you have been having a touch time. I'm glad to hear your dad is settled a bit more and I hope he keeps improving quickly.
    Don't feel bad about posting or visiting. You have a lot on your hands at the moment.
    Take care - sending you hugs.

  10. Mikayo,
    I have had overseas guests so haven't been on the computer for a week, sorry to hear about your father. Hope he improves in leaps and bounds. If he can see some of that cherry blossom I am sure it would make him better immediately - it is so pretty. I love the moss covered rocks around the base.

  11. Dear Mikayo,
    Please just enjoy the time you have with your father. I'm sure that your visits cheer him up.

    The cherry blossoms are beautiful. They do have an ethereal beauty, don't they?

  12. Miyako, I am so sorry about your dear father. Reminded me of when my daddy was in the hospital and I too went every day to see him. I will add him to my prayers. The cherry blossoms are gorgeous, love them. Blessings...Lu

  13. I'm very sorry about your father and I can imagine how sad you must feel. I am praying for him, you and your husband at this time. Don't post when you don't feel like it. Take care of yourself also.

  14. My sweet Miyako, your images are stunning! I am so happy to hear that your father is better and how lucky he is to have such a kind and devoted daughter.

    Do not worry about commenting on my blog. You take care of yourself and your family first and we will be here when you have a chance. Hugs and kisses to you, Mina
