Hot holiday

It's 130% Summer here, I tell you! (@@)

I must have sounded disrespectful with a somewhat ' rainy and cool Summer ' in the previous post, and now Lord Heat is punishing me! =P

Ok... see this little ornament on the right, with 2 goldfishes? ( Yes, think goldfish, inspired by olden Japanese game, 金魚すくい ) Simply looovvveee such decorations the Japs prepare for their lifestyle throughout the year. They're cheap, cute, very Jappy and the profit of this purchase goes to some welfare organization. =)

And I'm conferring it to my prized pot, Rowndy. For its blooms have sustained for more than 2 months. ;)


We're in the midst of the Obon holiday actually, hopefully the heat subsides a little when we're having fun outside. Another fine aspect about living in Japan : lotsa holidays! ;)

We had the same kind of summer all through July - it was cool and rainy and wonderful and just when we started to complain that we really haven't had much of a summer, the heat hit in August! It sounds like we're having similar summer weather!
The orchid is magnificent! What a beautiful color!

Love ya lots,
Maggie and Mitch
