Garden views

I’m working in the garden and I feel eyes on me.
Oh my goodness, the shrike is staring at me.
It was so close, it looked as if it wanted to play with me.

Wax plum trees have started to bloom. The fragrance is so nice. They will be in full bloom in a month, and students of Kura cooking class will be able to enjoy them.

The buds of the red and white plum trees have also swelled up a little.
The day when we can cook in cooking school while looking at the red and white plum blossoms will soon be here.
