Rainy days will begin before long .

I work at a day care center fot children,and  we had some 30 new students 
 and two new  young workers in this month of April.
I had to memorize their names and know their characters and  created a work
 manual in order to have the two new workers to figure out  our works 
as soon as possible.
 In addition to that, I have been planning a trip to  Hokkaido area for the past
few weeks : My mother asked me to make an intinerary for our trip to Hokkaido.
That's why I was not able to update my blog for nearly two months or more.
While I was tight with the business tasks and routine duties, Spring is going to
finish so soon and rainy days will begin before long in Japan. Now, everything is
settled in good condition,
Since I was very busy, I wasn't able to check on my garden.  My favorite
flowers in my garden bloomed one after the other for 2 months - first the
 Grape hyacinth , then the Spirea, then the light orange Azeleas, then the J
apanese Snowflowers, then the Clematis then the Roses and so on.

I am trying to grow melons, which seeds were given by a kindhearted women.
She is one of my blog readers. The melons are in my garden now.
Now their little true leaves have just sprouted - It's my first time to grow it
in my garden.
Growing them is one of my excitement for this year as far as my gardening
is concerned. If I could grow them well and have delicious melons, I would
like to give their sisters to someoneー perhaps to gardening lovers- like her.


  Besides melons , lettuces , red raddishes ,edible chrysanthemus, gumbos are
 growing day by day.
Japanese gingers also are streching up.

This picture of cherryblossoms was taken on the way to The Cupnoodle
-Museum in Yokohama-my hometown.
I was very lucky to be able to see beautiful cherryblossoms unexpectedly.
Tomorrow is Saturday but I have to go to work early.
Though I love to sit up late at night, I could not do it tonight. That is too bad.
Everybody,  have a lovely weekend.

Hi rainfield61!
Thank you very much for noticing my update immediately.

Hi Kumittyi!
I know exactly how you feel! Our families and jobs keep us so busy. Two of our girls graduated from college last week and the oldest one also had a bridal shower. She will be getting married this Summer. Do you have bridal showers in Japan? It's a very fun "hen" party. Lots of ladies and lots of practical household gifts. I also hardly had time to notice the Spring, and with a wedding coming, Summer will blaze by too. My melons look just like yours. I hope we both are lucky enough to share them with more friends. Get some rest, you need it! Me too.

Hi Kate!
Congratulations on your daughter's graduation. Indeed, graduation is very important event in our children's lives. In addition to that blissful event, one of your daughters will tie the knot soon. Wow, I wish them all the best! Once again, congratulations! Their wedding day, is something to look forword to. You must be very happy for your daughter. You are truly showered with joy! Great! How amazing!
By the way, I haven't experienced bridal showers. In Japan, that is not a common practice so far, but it sounds so fun. I have just remenbered that before my wedding, I had simple dinner meetings with friends or relatives. However, it is not the same as "Hen" Party. Truly, we are really busy but it is fullfilling as well, right? So, let's refresh and take a break for our health.

It can be tricky to guess some of the names from the kanji characters sometime ;) .
I wish we can raise some fund to visit Japan again.
I have been to Hokkaido travel with friends by car during summer.
I was wondering if you can introduce me to some Japanese organic seed suppliers online.
My husband going to Japan for a business trip next month.
I am hoping to purchase some Japanese Heirloom seeds that I missed very much.

Hello Malay-Kadazan girl!
I wish I could introduce you to Japanese organic seed suppliers online. But I'm so sorry that I don't have any connections in such a company. I'm really sorry.
<(_ _)>
By the way, I was very surprised to hear that you had been to Hokkaido.
I am wondering where you visited.
