＊Pictures of First Tea Ceremony of the Year ＊
The lady keyboard player of the band my husband involves sent me the pictures she took at "初釜・hatugama; the First Tea Ceremony of the Year".
When I called her to thank the pictures, I had some information from her. Like this link shows, "Tied-Willow and Camellia" are used; Tied-Willow expresses to connect the New Year and the old Year. You can see some Tea Utensils like powdered tea container and so on.
|Pictures below are incense container and bowls.|
The Hanging Scroll decorated in the room has an Analects of Confucius.
"the virtuous man will not long remain lonely"
"徳不孤 必有鄰 "
Last year, the same lady of husband's friend saved this Eurasian Jay which clashed against the window of her house and fell unconscious. Lucky sweet bird could get better and released. I've never seen this kind bird; her house is about 40 min. away from ours. I wish I could have a chance to see Jay someday♪
＊Japanese Tit and Japanese Pygmy Woodpecker＊
These Japanese Tit and Japanese Pygmy Woodpecker were found the tree in front of my house on a different days. Birds mainly come to the tree in the morning (in winter time, they come outside is still dark.) ; I feel lucky when they show up during the sun is shining p-;)
Thank you very much for stopping by;
Have a wonderful weekend and new week ahead♪
