Have a delightful week

We had a delightful week with our grandsons recently.

They stayed at our house with their mother from last Wednesday till this Tuesday.

He is just two years old and he can speak.
It seems that his brother is so insightful.
But all of children must be genius.

Unfortunately, the plant was died down by hard Winter.

I planted this cherry today.

The deadwood was cut like this today.

The cherry name is Sato Nishiki.
There are two American cherries which do not bear fruit.

Spring Equinox Day  (春分の日 彼岸)

It's a national holiday today!
Since this is believed to be when the spirits ancestors return to this world, people visit their family graves, dean them, offer flowers and burn incense.

I offered these daffodils which were in my garden.

This is AyeYai's work.
