To buy an 'arranged preserved flowers' for my cousin's birthday, I went to a small flower shop. The owner is an old lady handling the shop by herself and she is my husband's old acquaintance.
What a sweet surprise, she told us about the baby swallows inside the shop. A few years ago, a pair swallows started to making their nest outside the shop. But for the sake of the safety, they chose on top of the adjustment machine (maybe) of the fridge for the flowers inside the shop. I rushed to fetch my camera to the car p;)
|You can see the nest in the picture below.|
And I also found the goldfish originated from China with funny face in the fish tank there. It is called ”Oranda”. Japanese name is, 'オランダ獅子頭, oranda-shishigashira'. It is literally means "Holland lion head". During the time we had the seclusion policy, things from foreign country is much-prized being called "thing from Holland" because of the trading relationship with the country. 'Picture Page' of them.
Thank you very much for stopping by;
