Gifted flower Pictures (part 2) and Moon etc;

Header of this post;
*Hoya Carnosa*
Lady keyboard player, who is in the same band group with my husband, kindly sent me pictures of this unknown flower (for me p;-) through 'line'.  Even my elementary school students have this SNS's mail system nowadays. Here is the link of (part1).
This Hoya is also known as 'サクララン' which literally means 'cherry orchid' in Japanese. Really surprised to see this plant has grown this big and looks like orchid ♪     Wikipedia page, Picture page ;   (for flower links)


I loved her way of putting musical notes in the background.

She is so sweet that showed me the blooming process as well.






Last March after I visited Japanese Garden (link page),  we stopped by this restaurant for lunch. I haven't posted this place and thought pinkish color gateway might fit with this post, and for Tex's meme  as well :-)



I remember enjoyed having the set lunch menu; mine and husband's.





My First Crescent Moon shots and Cute Doggies;
On 16th when I was hearing weather forecast, learned that the Moon and the Saturn got close. Rushed outside and took some pictures and found 2 tiny spots of lights.  Haha, no idea what they are. And the pictures of  2 moons were taken on 18th and 19th.  My first Crescent Moon♪   (for SkyWatch and Saturday Critters)


On 19th, my friend and I went to the city park to see the sculpture exhibition; I'll post the topic later.  These 2 cute dogies were with their masters and seemed having fun seeing sculptures.






We are expecting calligraphy guests (serving soba) this weekend, but I'll try  visit you.
 See You Soon;

  8. Hello Miyako!:) I was so surprised when I saw this plant,and recognized the flower imediately, as I have one, but had been unable to discover it's name. Mine has grown very tall, with many leaves but produces few flowers, however I think the waxy pink flowers are extreemly beautiful as your photos show. The Japanese gardens with their bridges ponds with COi and waterfalls are very lovely.
    Warm Regards.

  15. Pretty post ... I love the pink- tinged gate and the restaurant, especially the delicious lunches! And the Hoya photos are very good ... your friend is talented ( just like you). It does not seem like two years since your father's death. Time goes by so quickly. My thoughts are with you on the anniversary.

  20. Dearest Miyako,
    What a lovely Hoya Carnosa your friend photographed and indeed she was very talented for using the backdrop of music notes! Two of her loves; playing music and raising perfect house plants.
    Wow, that lunch looks so pleasing to the eye and for sure did also taste very yummy as well.
    The presentation is incredible!
    Also your moon shots and the happy, lucky doggies is great.
    Sending you hugs and love,
    Mariette
