Trees in our garden were Pruned and Birds;

*Our Garden looks a little Better*
Our gardener who used to be my late brother's friend came late last month. My late brother introduced him after seeing his wonderful job to our parents' garden  (they both are also deceased and the house is owned by new family now.) 
We had pine trees till some years ago, but they were dead because of weevil damage. Maintaining pine tree in good shape sure must require expertise. He helps us regularly every year; we truly appreciate his good job.
*First two pictures are "After and Before"*
*This picture with pine trees was taken 5 years ago,  which I posted here.* 
*From the recent captures of Birds* 
My husband whimsically takes me to the usual rice paddy. These pictures are from middle and late last month, when rice reaping has just started. Yes, their sweet faces always give me warm feelings.

  1. Dearest Miyako,
    Love the great results after the artful pruning done to your trees!
    Excellent job and it is valuable to have someone that is good at the job.
    The rice paddies always prove to be a great source for birds coming to feed and you can get excellent photos.
    Sending you hugs,

  2. The Japanese style of pruning pine trees is so interesting and the trees look beautiful. We don't actually have that habit in Finland, and I am sure our pine trees are of different variety. Looks beautiful and tidy!

  3. Your gardener did a beautiful job! Love the after & before photos. I see a big difference! Great Your husband is very kind to always take you to the places for your photos. I enjoy seeing sweet faces of the birdies in rice paddy :-)
    この前頂いたコメントの「浪費家」には私も笑ってしまいましたo(^▽^)oこっちは今週かなり冷え込みそうです。日本もだんだん寒くなってきてると思うので,体調など崩されないよう気をつけてくださいね(^ ^) Have a great new week, Miyako san!

  4. Miyako - your gardener has quite a talent for shaping trees. My Dad used to do this for a living, and it is harder than it looks! Your hubby is so special to take you to the rice paddy for pictures of the birds. I am so grateful for the result, and thank you for linking to Mosaic Monday!

  5. Great results after pruning! So beautiful!

  6. Always have admired the Bonsai talent to shape plants/trees. Something on my bucket list to learn one day! Beautiful and elegant. The birds you captured so well with their background, they're kind of photographical "paintings!" Many thanks Miyako for posting and linking them to All Seasons. Your posts are a real joy to view, and your experiences to read - many thanks and have a beautiful week!

  7. Your trees are lovely, as if they have a great personality!! Such pretty birds, too.

    Your post on 'My Corner of the World' is great to see this week!
