Today’s weather has Yellow sand from China and the bad view continues. The Yellow sand spoiled the blue sky. The air is hazy. hazy = not clear
I heard, in the countryside the cherry trees are in full bloom now. This area is my husband's hometown. The cherry tree is more than 400 years old. So, I went to the country side with my husband early in the morning. There were some local tourists in spite of the early time. I took pictures of cherry trees and we went to the mountain. The mountain has snow caps. We had a heavy snow this winter. So, many tree branches got damaged. It was a horrible sight.
The ruddy kingfisher will come to this mountain soon. I wonder if there are big old trees for nesting.
Weather forecast said it will be cloudy after the rain. But it was not dark this morning so I went to the mountain. I ran alongside the river by car. There was bank protection works everywhere. There was asphalt road in the mountain in Japan. It is a road empty of traffic. Many tax was used, I think. Plants and animals became sacrificed for human always. I feel sad that I saw concrete on the river bank. There were snow here and there in the mountain. And I felt cold because I wore scanty clothing. In the mountain today, the birds were almost not singing. Winter birds decreased in recent years. We have been destroying a lot of nature in this world. I think, if there are no birds, there are no people.
When I came back to my house my husband said “ I already filed the income-tax.” He said “ Money will come back.” I was glad to hear that.
I went to the river as usual today. There were wild monkey. They were eating a persimmons. I was little bit afraid but maybe there were no food in the mountain. I was waiting for the kingfisher in the tent. When I saw the bird I became cheerful immediately. I heard someone’s voice outside my tent. There was a policeman. I said “ what happened?” He said “Is the car parking in the vacant area yours?”. "Yes, it is" The policeman said that I have to move my car. The resident of that called a policeman because my car is causing disturbance. I don't think that my car is causing any disturbance. But I had to move my car. It was not my day. 証拠写真だけどお猿さんの嬉しそうなお顔…分かるかな？
It was a fine day but I heard the weather forecast said it will be cloudy and rainy in the evening. I went to the river since I haven't been there for a long time already. It was a town’s river. There was an athletic meet for preschool there. The river side was dense with weeds. The weeds' length were same as my height in other places. And there were many grasshoppers and I saw a snake. I can’t believe this is the town’s river. It was awful. And then I went lower. There were 4 photographer.
I had a pleasant talk with them when the kingfisher appeared. It was a young bird. I hope that the young bird will grow up that river.
It was scorching hot today. scorching hot = very hot I couldn't sleep early last night. I was able to sleep at midnight already. My husband woke me up early this morning. He told me to go to the river. I was still sleepy that time but I got up. I took a massage using the machine. I went to the river since I haven't been there for a long time already. There were many grasses around the river. Cicadas were busy chirping. I met my friend near the river. I saw a kingfisher three times. It was a young bird It's my first time to see a young bird within this year. I hope the young bird will grow up in that river.
