full moon….

the calendar says full moon on the 26th…. but we probably won’t be seeing it here, what with all the rain… not that i am complaining…about 15 years ago, we had a very dry rainy season which left us with a water shortage all summer and fall… water rationing and lower water output…. so, rain during rainy season is just what we need…. it’s pretty too…everything is so green, greener than green… jade green… emerald green… tomato green…

tomatoes waiting for some sun

ferns are taking over the yard!!!

hydrangea

i think that the hydrangea look their best in the rain, all drippy and wet…

nearly every house in our neighborhood has them blooming in their yards.

It’s the Nagasaki city flower.

    The full mooon on the 25th of June (here) is the Moon of the Salmon’s return. There will be beach walks and journey like a salmon, discussing salmon fishing and telling salmon stories around a beach bonfire amid the sunset.
    We will be viewing the moon from our deck. We have had three days of summer )sunshine) so flowers are doing better and have planted some vegetables.
    Love to all, grandma H.

    We also have had 3 days of summer – or is it 4? We consider anything over 60 degrees and not raining to be summer!! We’re not going to discuss the garden — too depressing.
