Hand-Bell and Little Grebe

*Hand-Bell concert at a hospital*
Late spring this year, Hand-Bell group called "シュルンマーリート, shurunma-ri-to" held a concert at a big hospital's restaurant. Sorry for my late posting.  It was my first experience to hear the sweet sound of hand-bell directly with my own years.  One of the music I posted below they played is from Nursery Rhyme called "Seven Crows".  Sweet music by the sweet young girls♬
This is the y-tube page of this music with song.

*Gladiolus Flower and Japanese Pampas Grass*
About more than a month ago, my neighbor was working at his garden close to his gladiolus. I wanted to praise his hard work and started to talk to him. To my joy, he went to back yard and gave me his gorgeous gladiolus  I was so happy for this beautiful unexpected present.  I found this Japanese Pampas Grasses alongside the road.
*Little Grebe*
A few days ago, this sweet Grebe was enjoying a light swim after lunch. 
I saw the birdie had  a big catch of a fish ;-)

Thank you very much for stopping by ;
   I always appreciate your sweet comments;

  1. It was fun to listen to the sweet young girls playing their handbells! So interesting, I knew nothing about this. Yes gladiolus is a handsome flower <3 Wishing you a lovely Sunday & the coming new week. Best wishes from the hot Finland. Today 32 C, but next week we'll have very chilly, even under 18 C.

  2. Miyako - I have seen small and large handbell groups perform, and it is always impressive. How each person manages multiple bells has always been amazing to me. A lovely gladioli from your garden - I am sure it makes your heart very proud. Thanks for linking up to Mosaic Monday, my friend!

  3. The music is so soothing ... a well choreographed dance of tinkling bells. Lovely!

  4. I enjoyed the hand bell performance by these talented young ladies! The sound is so soft and pleasant. It was really fun to listen to a familiar music played with hand bell!

  6. Wow, that is a long time ago I heard a hand bell choir - they performed often at church or during Christmas time. These gladioles are beautiful, and easy to to arrange in an art piece.
