My granddaughter flew back after spending a few days with us.
I have returned to my daily routine, which includes helping my mother-in-law,
and enjoying some hobbies.
(2)Now, this hedge(privet) of my house is in full bloom.
They bloom just for 2 weeks.
My husband photographed this recent frequent visitor with his point and shoot. .
This time, azaleas are blooming here and there on the streets in my neighborhood.
This house with a colorful show of flowering azaleas lies opposite my home.
The owner, now at 93, has been an aged widower for some seven years, since his wife passed away,
who organized a gardener regularly to take care of his hedge. It reflected his polite character
and careful appearance.The blooming flowers made neighbors pleased every season.
But he has been in a nursing home since last autumn.
So since then, his relatives have been looking after the house, and the gardener no longer visits.
I photographed the azaleas, hoping this blooming will not be the last time.
Modern houses are slowly replacing the older houses in the quiet residential area I live.
Still many typical Japanese houses are loved too.
Japanese apricot (Ume)in my garden, May 6.
My husband picked them all.
I will make Umeshu(Japanese liqueur made from Ume) with them this year too.
the right photo...the Umeshu I made last year.
Would you like to taste it? Very sweet and sour!
