Educational Wooden Toys and Oriental Green Finch ;

Educational Wooden Toys
Last fall one corner at the department store, these lovely toys for children were being sold.  I thought I wished to buy the Alphabet one. I no longer have many students, so I held back my temptation p;-)
Gift for New Born baby and Castanets
Alphabet and Japanese "Hiragana" version
I loved this sweet Mom and Children of birds♡♡♡
Oriental Green Finch flying around between a house and etc scared by me
On our way back from commodity shopping on 20th, made a detour around usual vast 
rice-paddy area. My husband found a group of Oriental Green Finch was perching on 
the tree of the Japanese style house. We were driving the very narrow road of the edge 
of the picture below.  I got off our car and slowly got close to them by using the footpath 
between rice fields, they started to fly around scared by me. 
                  The arrows were the places they flew back and forth.

I felt sorry for scaring them but also Thankful to be able to see their sweet faces ♡♡♡  
Thank you very much for stopping by and sweet comments;
  Wishing you all will have wonderful coming new week

  3. Those wooden toys are so lovely! I love these pretty castanets. I haven’t seen them since I was in elementary school :-) The bird mom and kids are adorable!
    Great photos of oriental green finch. Sights of so many of them perching on the tree or electric wire are quite spectacular!
    Have a happy new week, Miyako san! xo

  4. Wooden toys are the best a baby or a child can get! Quite another thing as plastic ones. Your bird photos brought me much joy. Happy MM.

  5. Miyako - the wooden toys are adorable. I like to buy wooden toys since they tend to be more durable - these certainly look to be well-constructed! So many finches in one place - how blessed you are to see them. I especially like the picture of the birds on a wire. Thank you for linking to Mosaic Monday, and have a wonderful week!

  6. Hello - I am just stopping to admire your mother bird and her chicks. The wooden toys are beautiful. We have been at the Aus Open tennis and very happy to see your Japanese player Naomi Osaka win her 2nd Grand Slam!

Such a lovely bird. Many thanks for sharing your experiences with All Seasons! Have a great week Miyako!

  11. Dearest Miyako,
    Wooden toys are always a big plus compared to anything made out of plastic!
    You captured lots of Oriental Green Finches.
    We started feeding our Gold Finches again the thistle seeds, Pieter had forgotten to buy new seeds so we did a week ago. It is a joy to see them feast on it. How do they know? They also must tell others...
    Sending you hugs,

  12. Especially luv the wooden toys. My six year old grandaughter will still like them
    Have a nice week Orchid


  13. All these birds in the tree, that's so lovely!

  14. Beautiful finches! Always so lovely to see so many in one tree. Yes, those wooden toys were wonderful! I particularly loved the tree.

  15. The toys are so cool, I want to play with them!!
    I've never seen so many finches at the same time! How awesome.
    I appreciate you linking up to My Corner of the World this week!

  16. Miyako, those toys are so nice. Lovely to see toys made out of wood and not plastic. Thank you for linking up today.

  17. Wundervolle Fotos !
    Ich liebe dies süßen Vögel.
    Und so viele sitzen im Baum, das ist ganz reizend an zu sehen.
    Da herrschte bestimmt ein großes Gezwitscher ;-)
    Bei uns ist alles noch weiß und es gibt viel Schnee.
    Es sind noch wenige Vögel zu sehen.
    Liebe Grüße

  18. What a beautiful gathering of green finches in the tree. I'm thankful that you were able to stop and see them, then share the photos with us. The wooden toys are so well made. I try to buy as little plastic as possible these days, and am always looking for things for my grandchildren to learn and play with. Have a wonderful week, Miyako.
