While driving for errand, we found many sparrows were having lunch offered rice by (probably) neighbor. I thought I might as well taking video :-p)
flying back and forth from the road to the tree;
I forgot the wider picture where they were.
When we went there on our way back, they were all gone.
*Shellfish Digging* (this part posted; Japanese meal page)
On a same day way back home, we spotted some people were digging shellfish. The shellfish is Cyrenidae Gray，we call it 'シジミ, shijimi'.
This particular shellfish said to have the medicinal effect of enhancing the liver function and live in the brackish waters (of an estuary). I knew they live in the area 'estuary' which has water that has more salinity than fresh water. My husband proudly taught me the area is called '汽水域, kisuiiki' in Japanese :-)
With this shellfish, we normally cook miso-soup. I had urge to eat bowl of conger eel and rice. Believe me, they are yummy.
*And for the flower link*
The white one I found at the roadside which I couldn't find name. And gifted picture
of our friend 'hellebore', we call it 'Christmas rose' ♪
I DO hope you are having a wonderful week; See You Soon, friends;
ps; Reading Dearest Theresa's comment, I checked with pc.
