This blog is for family and friends, to share my feelings and photos with and for myself, to support my fading memory and improve my Japanese. I intend to do some writing in kanji, but am not getting very far without a Japanese computer. So for the moment I say "konnichi wa". Aisatsu dake - just saying hello.

Last days of September

September, my first month of autumn migrators in Fukuoka has ended. Hope to see some more in the next month. If not, next year.

アメリカウズラシギ,  Pectoral Sandpiper

エリマキシギ,  Ruff



ツルシギ タシギ,  Spotted Redshank

The ricefields, gold colored and top-heavy are rimmed with higambana. Mostly red, sometimes white or yellow. Many wet paddies are dried up, the mud cracked. Time for the waders to move on.

ヒガンバナ higambana,  Amaryllis Lycoris

今日の勉強  is on hold, awaiting my NEW JAPANESE LAPTOP!
