＊Around 60 Years Dld Festival ＊
One of the band group my husband involves has participated this event several times before. 60 year old anniversary is called "還暦 kanreki" (in English, diamond anniversary). This festival is performed mainly by music group made of senior members. I sat rather left side of the seat for the audience, so the back of the right side of the stage shows the black curtain...
Flowers, pictures and calligraphies were decorated at the entrance.
＊Two Early Blooming Cherry Blossoms and a Bird＊
This year I could enjoy two early blooming cherry blossoms.
First one is called "kawazu-zakura", petals are facing downwards. This cherry blossoms are blooming near my area along side of the river.
Second one is called "Weeping cherry tree. 枝垂れ桜 shidare-zakura". Branches of the tree are all facing downwards. I found this tree on our way to the first anniversary of my late ousin's death. And took pictures on our way back home.
And when we stopped the parking place, my husband found this "Eastern Buzzard" . Felt so thankful for him(or her) showing up for me p;-)
It seems comfortable weather is coming close. Hope you all are doing fine;
