How have you been?

 I have been too lazy to post new article. However, these flowers in my garden just made me want to upload the photos.

 The Deutzia tree( 空木、 Japanese snow flower) is fully blooming now right at my doorstep. The contrast between the pure white deutzias and orange roses are extremely lovely.

Here is a  picture of  my strawberries. Finally, after 5 years, they are now back in my garden. My strawberries are used to be eaten by slugs but they luckily they are spared this year. I feel very delighted.

 And lastly, my Kenndama.

 I started doing my Kenndama a few months ago for a new challenge. I hope to get the license in the first grade of the senior class in the near future. I practice it every day though, it is quite difficult to master the new technique from what I expected.

Then,   everyone, have  great June !

Hi, have not "seen" you for a long time.

Your strawberry is my favourite.

I really didn't post for a long long time. I was worried that you might have forgotten me . Thank you for remembering me.
Oh, you love strawberries , right? I thought you love mushrooms.

Hi Kumittyi!
I had to google Kenndama. Never heard of it before. One of the articles said it was a drinking game too. I bet it would really be a challenge then! Your Snow flowers are lovely and I'm glad the slugs left you some berries. We had a very greedy bird that ate ours up this year.

Hi Kate!
Kendama was drinking game in the old days,right? That surprised me. Thank you for sharing me. By the way, speaking of game, I recently competed with my son in the kendama game. Who do you think won first? It was my son who succeeded first. Eventually, I had to pay my son some money because he won. I was hugely disappointed.
