Late-Sakura-Festival at Ryuou-mountain & Nature;

Late Sakura-Festval at local mountain 
On 8th this month, one of the band groups my husband involves performed at the stage prepared  on top of the mountain called Ryuouzan(竜王山).
A little bit late for the full bloom of Sakura, but we enjoyed varieties of performances. I was really impressed by the great performance of the kindergartners♫♫♫

I hope you will  be able to enjoy the video, Unfortunately I was taking the video with against the light. Sorry for the little dark image of it.

And at the end of the Festival, there was Rice Cake Throwing.

Tulips from my neighbor's garden  
This year, I hadn't had a chance to take pics of tulips. One of my neighbors kindly let me take theirs beside the block fences. Happy with the Bright Yellows ones as well ♡♡♡ And Reminds me of my late mother loves them and arranged with the varieties of colors. 
And feel so Thankful for this starting of wonderful season.

Carpenter Bees  with Japanese Wisteria
While my husband was outside our house weeding, he noticed the Carpenter Bees were flying and having Nectar of wisteria flowers of next neighbor's. Unfortunately, only some vines are alive. And I learned that the nectar is protected by the hard structure of the flower so that the strong power of the Carpenter Bees are needed.

Preparation of Rice Planting
On our way back from shopping, Rice Paddies were getting ready being plowed. I found many Dusky Thrushes searching for food. Luckily both male and female Pale Thrush were also behind the cherry tree (almost in leaves :-) . Maybe aiming for food as well.

Hoping that the new week will be a great one for everyone.
Visiting you from tmorrow

Strawberries Picking & last this year Cherry Blossom with Bird;

Strawberries Picking
Late last month, my cousin invited us to do Strawberries Picking. It was really an enjoyable time.  Not only enjoyed the taste of the strawberries but the scene of the Honey Bees fluttering around the flowers of berries excited me. My cousin was smiling, seeing me chasing bees with camera p:-) 
The color of bees on the flower while they were having nectar was Lovely
And felt Thankful for my cousin with this sweet time.

Cherry Blossoms and Birds
These Cherry blossom was taken places from my neighborhood (beside rice paddy and river) late last month. We have rain and strong spring wind last couple days and they all are called Hazakura "葉桜 leaves cherry-tree"; these two Chinese characters express the situation of the cherry tree after the blossom, "cherry tree in leaf".

I got so excited to take this blurry pictures of female Japanese Nightingale. They are famous with its chirping♫♫♫ (video from Y-tube)

This Brambling was taken in Feb. with the evening sunlight.
It is past 22:30 of April 8th.  I've finished writing sentences for the pictures I prepared before. Like I said with previous post, I'll start visiting you soon.  Have a wonderful and comfortable April♡♡♡

Visiting You Soon;

After I went to Ooshima, it has been very busy with becoming the head of the 9 houses of my community for this fiscal year etc.
I wish to say "visiting you soon" after helping my husband for the stage performance of the band he involves (carrying instruments etc) tomorrow.

I REALLY appreciate your sweet comments♡♡♡
