Happy Valentine's Day (Starling, winter scene, flower); 

So sorry for unmatched header, I've posted new one. 
Wished to change Valentines Day post.

*Happy Valentine's Day 
Late last month, I found this sweet couple of  "Gray Starling" in the rice paddy on our way back from shopping. They sure looked happy couple.  
I thought their lovely scene is right for the "Valentine's Day" ♡♡♡ 

Checking with PC, I learned that the one with brownish plumage is female and all blackish one is male.  I'll add Starlings' pictures I took from the tree in front of my house last year.   Several kinds of birds gathered to eat the Nut Fruit Berry of the (unidentified) tree.
                                           ♪ Female 
Oh, you funny face♪

My week's favorite for "Fridays Hunt"

Today(11th), we had first snow fall this season (maybe the only one). Not piled much but I wished to post the picture p:-)  You might be able to see where the tree is.

 Flowers from the road side
Hope you can see the tiny two ants on the Camellia flower.

Although I posted new one, so sorry I haven't been able to visit you all.  This week we had a couple of inquiries for my late parents empty house again,  might be possibility of making contract with one of them right now.
Hope your new week will be a wonderful one ♪    I'll start Visiting You Soon ☆☆☆

  1. Hello Miyako, your happy couple of Starlings make a most beautiful card. They certainly seem to like to be in each others' company :D)
    They're lovely birds who inhabit the berry tree across from you - that's a cute fluffy little tuft on his face, there must have been a breeze.
    The first snowfall makes a pretty picture indeed. A beautiful Camellia, I love the deep pink, and yes I can see the two ants... great photography!
    I hope your week is successful with the possible sale. It all takes a lot of time, and you can't do everything at once. Thank you for your bright and happy post and until we catch up - cheerio for now. Hugs :D)xx

  2. Hi Miyako san! What a cute couple those gray starlings are! They are adorable together :-) We have a couple of doves living nearby and they often hang out on our deck together ( when my boys are not out on deck!).
    I love the snow sceneries. So beautiful! And the camellia is beautiful, too. What a gorgeous pink color. I sure can see the ants. I bet they are enjoying sweet flower :-)
    I wish a good news about the house, Miyako san. Enjoy the rest of weekend and happy Valentine's Day!!

  4. Love the starlings, like little lovebirds flying around your blog. Your Valentine's header is delightful, too.
    Thank you for joining the MM could owed again this week, its great to have your company for Mosaic Monday.

  5. Dearest Miyako,
    Hope that you indeed can sign a sales contract on the house of your late Parents! That would be such a welcome thing for your lives.
    Love the Love Bird concept and what great photos you took in the rice paddy.
    Also the other photos are great.
    Sending you hugs and stay warm and cozy, hope not too much snow followed.
    We had no snow on the ground... Early spring it looks like as the magnolias did not get any frost damage and bloom since January 27 now! Second tree a little behind but fully open now.
    Hugs and love and wishing Happy Valentine to you both!

  6. Hope for you both that you get a contract soon for the house of your late parents! The little starlings are so cute, and yeas, very fitting for Valentine's Day - and thank you much for sharing the birds and the snow with ALL SEASONS!
