Bay-Bay 2010

These are daffodils this noon.
The buds must be first flowers in the new year.
But the plants had flowers on last December.

We had another grandson

The bigger one is two years and two months, and younger one is nine months old.

The first frost killed the tomatoes after all

What a pity!

After all, killed the tomatoes were killed by the first frost.

It proved true that tomato can not pass the winter?!?

It proved that this plant can pass the winter.

Ninth Symphony (交響曲第九番)

I and AyeYai were audiences for the concert today.

We were on the same stage with same orchestra last year for Ninth Symphony.

We had good day today!
But last year's chorus was better than this year's one!?!

One of typical Japanese sight (drying radish)

There are lot of radishes which are hanged out to dry.
These dried radishes are material for making one of Japanese pickle.
The Japanese pickle is called Takuwan in Japanese.
