Our adorable pet rabbit "Pyon"

Pyon is very timid and shy girl.
She doesn't  really come  out of  the cage,
even though we have take care her  preciously for three or so years ,
however, she adores getting  us  to stroke gently in cage.

Her perfectly round eyes are so cute!!

How tiny!! 
 Our lovely bunny!(When she had just become  a member of our family.)

Pyon's adorable gesture
Pyon doesn't like hug very much.
I wish  that i held her in my armes and  stroked her on my lap.ope
I hope Pyon will hop over to greeting me as I come back home.

Leaf - Peeping in my garden

A colorful rust-red color of Blueberry leaves is outstanding in my small garden.
I do also enjoy the sweet fruit, not to mentioning a fall foliage,  every year .
However, to my sorrow, i didn't have plenty of  berry in  this summer....probably because of neglect of watering :-C
 Enkianthus perulatus , Doudantutuji , is not brighter than usual.

A Nandin (Nanten) with heavy with fruit (seeds??)

I feel golden leaves of Hyacinth orchid  elegant.

My favorite and old mobile phone

Here is my cellular phone, putting some straps with the characters in " ONEPIECE" and such,  My daughter gave them to me.
 these straps are  very popular with the kids whom I  have the care of.
They often  say to me  " I want these straps. Give them to me. Please.!Mrs...."

I want to use it affectinately until it gets out of order, however, I'm  very interested in  a smart phone:)

 In fact, It is Otome cameria , an evergreen  tree with lots of flowers in autumn in Japan.
this elegant flower is so strong in the heat  and the cold, so It is  very easy to grow.

The mums are in full bloom.

Meet  the spray mums: maifuusha. I love the patals using two-colours of the mum so much. It 's around two years since I started to cultivate them.
I increaced flowers by multiplication of plant by  separating two roots.
I'm very glad that these mums  never fail to come out in this season.

We was good exercise!

Today was not a perfect day for hike. It was cloudy,but We had wonderful time.
As scheduled,I and my daughter climbed to Mt.Takao,  about 50 km from Tokyo , to see the autumn leaves. Unfortunately,they haven't turned into red yet, but that view was beautiful  and majestic.

 First We climbed by taking a lift to halfway
 up to moutain,  to the top along  route 2.
 On the way the top,  visited The Yakuouin
 Temple  and  stopped by  some souvenir shop.

The temple, believed to have been built in 744 by Gyoki   Bosatsu under decree from Emperor Shomu, is dedicated to the Medicine Bhudda, Yakushi Nyorai.

 The Top was crowded with lots of                
 climbers ,were alive with mountaineers.
 Today is November 3, national holiday,so
 I think it is quite natural.

"Mitufukudanngo";the dumpling with sauce of walnut and
soybean paste,  is filling and great.
They say the age of this tree here is about 500 years old.
