Performed at Nursing Home, Orchid and Bulbul;

Performed at Nursing Home
On 7th this month, band group my husband involves was invited to play at a nursing home and played two times changing halls. At first hall, we could see audiences were mainly from outside the hall not only some residents.
The band member played hoping that all the audience had some enjoyable and relaxing time and felt Thankful.
      Second place must be a dining room; staffs were watching the residents carefully.

The title of this music is "spring of north country".  This type of music is from popular song called "Enka, 演歌" which is Japanese balladic song and sung with a type of vocal ornamentation called "kobushi".  This is the link that the original singer was singing the song many years ago.

Found  "Orchids" at the biggest hotel in my city
At the end of last month, my friend and I went to the hotel to join an event. When we entered the hotel, found these potted Orchid Flowers close to the front desk.

Brown Eared Bulbul
These bulbuls were seen on the tree in from of my house late winter this year. Let me use these pictures not posted yet. I thought I captured a good moment in a photo ;-) 
Thank you very much for stopping by,   always  appreciate your sweet visits;.
So sorry for my absence; I'll start visiting you later today.

Linking this post to these pages and Thanks to all the link hosts;" All SEASONS", "MosaicMonday","Through My lens", 


  1. Lovely photos - that table of orchids is amazing

  2. The performance by your husband and the band looks wonderful! I’m sure residents at the nursing home and other audiences enjoyed the live music :-)
    Gorgeous exhibit of orchids. And these photos of bulbul are so lovely! Great capture of bulbul enjoying fruit :-)
    Wishing you a wonderful new week, Miyako san xo

  3. To have a live orchestra at the home, must have been a treat for the elderly home! And your shots of the gorgeous orchids are lovely. Great to already have some photos of the Bulbuls (with the berry in its beak - at the right moment!) All your shots are lovely, Miyako:)

  4. Beautiful pictures and stories to begin our Mosaic Monday this week, thank you.

  5. The bulbuls are beautiful birds (and not one we ever see over here).... Gorgeous potted orchids! At the nursing home, if it is like many of the ones here in the States, I am guessing that the first hall was for the people who live there but are more or less independent ... they can get around on their own and have a room or apartment without daily nursing care -- maybe they go to a communal dining room for meals. And then the second hall was probably for the more frail population who require daily nursing care and attention.

  6. Dearest Miyako,
    That was a very lovely performance with good applaus at the end. The singer gave a very special performance too.
    Lovely white orchids at the hotel.
    And your Brown Eared Bulbul photos are excellent ones.
    Sending you hugs,

  7. Very nice that the elders get free music and concert.

    Worth a Thousand Words

  8. Music and flowers - how lovely! Hope all is well.

  9. It is so important for the residents of nursing homes to get some entertainment in their monotonous daily routine <3 The display of the potted phalaenopsis looks very impressive. Wishing you a lovely week dear Miyako!

  10. How appropriate that you should find orchids at the hotel - perfect for you!!! I am always impressed with your bird pictures - well done with the bulbul and the seed in its beak! And your husband and the band are so generous with their talents … Enjoy your weekend!

  11. Hello Miyako, I am sure the residents of the nursing home enjoyed listening to your husband's band. The orchids display is beautiful,, they are lovely flowers. Great shots of the Brown Eared Bulbul, it is a handsome bird. Thank you so much for linking up and sharing your post. Happy Saturday, enjoy your weekend!

  12. I know the residents of the nursing home had to have enjoyed the performance so much! I loved hearing the ballad. It was beautiful. What a delightful bird, the brown eared bulbul, too. And lovely flowers. Have an awesome week, Miyako!

  13. Thanks for joining us at I'd Rather B Birdin', as always.
