New Handmade Pizza Kiln nearing completion etc;

*Handmade Pizza Kiln  made by my husband 's  Brother* 
When I heard that he started making Pizza Kiln inside the yard, I was really fascinated by the news♪ My husband makes Soba noodle and his brother makes Pizza; what an unexpected surprise and combination.  He sent me the pictures through sns called 'line', except the one he is standing by his Kiln in the middle of production which was taken we visited him before.

I asked him taking some pictures of the process for me p:-)
Blocks, Fireproof Bricks, Lava (ones with the arrow) and Fireproof Mortar.

He explained in the mail that the kiln needs 200 hours an empty fuel heating. 

* Double Cherry Blossoms *   
On 22nd this month, we went up nearby park to see the different type of cherry blossom called "double cherry blossom".  In Japanese we call it "八重桜・yaezakura"; yae means 'eightfold'.

It was Saturday around noon, some families were enjoying lunch.

*Birds from the tree in front of my house
In the first picture,  "Wild Pigeon" and "Pale Thrush".   
In the second one,   I was SO delighted to see my first Japanese Green Woodpecker, but unfortunately it was cloudy day.
I hope you are having wonderful Sunday and will have a great new week.

  2. You can guess that those two men are brothers! Both interested in cooking ... I love that! I hope he lives close enough that you can share a pizza once in a while!

    The cherry blossoms are stunning.... just beautiful. What a lovely place for a Saturday picnic. And you are getting better and better at finding wonderful birds. Thanks for sharing them with us.

    Have a wonderful week Miyako!

  3. Wow, handmade pizza kiln! Like your husband, his brother is very creative! It's very interesting to see how the kiln was built. I'd love to see the pizza he makes in the future :-) Homemade pizza fresh from handmade kiln - it must be extra tasty!
    The yaezakura blossoms are gorgeous. And cute birds! We have different kinds of woodpeckers coming a lot this year. Never seen green one, though.
    Have a wonderful new week, Miyako san, and happy May!!

  4. A handmade pizza kiln, thats awesome; luv luv the cherry blossoms

  5. Hi Orchid,
    Your brother in law has built a magnificent pizza oven, I can just imagine the great pizzas that you are going to enjoy in the future, delish!
    The cherry trees are beautiful what a lovely place to have a picnic, they are the same type as the one in our garden.
    Sadly the wind and rain of the last few days has blown much of the blossom across the garden making everything look as if it is covered by wedding confetti or pink snow.

    Thanks for joining me for MM again this week.

  6. Hello Miyako, have you tasted the pizza made from your brother-in-law's oven yet? It looks like a solid construction that will work well.
    The double cherry trees are blossoming here, too, and in Vancouver, where we spent the weekend. The trees I photographed there were a gift from Japan in 1958. They are so beautiful.
    Happy new week!

  7. So much fun to see the results of your husband's creative family. Hope you soon will be invited for pizza:):) The blooming trees are gorgeous. What a great environment for a lunch outside. Many thanks for sharing these lovely spring experiences with All Seasons! Have a beautiful week:)

  8. A wonderful post. I would love to taste a pizza made in that oven.

  9. Oh, he is a very talented & skilful guy! Great pizza moments ahead.... Your cherry blossoms are so beautiful - like cotton candy ❤︎ Wishing you a lovely week my dear friend!
