In the intermission of the rainy season


Now we are just  in the rainy season. The stationary front is settling in above the Japanese Archipelago. When does this front go away to the Continent,I wonder?  I hope it gets off without giving the harmful
damage to the archipelago like usual year.
But the rain or water is essential for us or living thing. Many life are born in this season.  I walked Nara-Park in the intermission of the rainy season.
The grove is given water and shoots born in spring grow to deep green. So we can see many kind of green.
And I also met many families of Starling in the wood of Kasuga-Grand-Shrine. They were picking something with children born recently vigorously.
There is a pond in the Park. Nobody were there. Now the pond was full of water and we could have heard a pin drop though  there are a lot of beautiful wisteria trees around this pond and many people visited cheerfully,noisy in May. Because of too quiet and pure air I thought water or wood nymphs may appear around there.

Also deers in Nara-Park come to the season of birth.
 In Nara-park about 700 female deer are living and babies of deer are born during from the middle of May to around July. Every year about 200 pregnant female deer are protected at Rokuen( deer's garden) and they deliver babies at this place. Babies get to be able to eat grass  about 20 days after the  birth. After that they are set off the Park with mothers. So we can see babies and mothers here during June.

      Mizutani-Cyaya( the restaurant in Nara Park)







We can see babies that have the clear white-spotted on their backs at the  Rokuen. There were about 30 babies and many female deer on the day I visited. Babies get to be able to stand in about one hour after birth.


       Babies like the place like this. They have habit that hide behind grasses.


                                                        ************************


I visited Hasedera-temple in Kamakura of Kanagawa prefecture next to Tokyo. This temple is famous for hydrangea. The hydrangea in the rain is more beautiful.





         From the observatory of Hasedera-temple. Sagami-Bay and the beach.





       Enoshima-dentetu-line.  Opening run was in 1902. This runs very close to private houses or along the beach. It's convenient to visit the Hasedera-temple.

                  An old-fashioned mailbox was standing surrounded with pink hydrangea. Nice atmosphere.

 この季節の鎌倉は混雑しています。

情緒豊かな瑞々しい、心がしっとりと潤ってくるような美しい写真の数々ですね。特に花ショウブの初々しいブルーのコントラスト、アジサイのはっとするような愛らしいブルー、長谷寺から望む空と山と海の何種類もの微妙なブルーの濃淡、どれもほんとにすばらしいです。鎌倉に行ったんですね。私が以前行ったのは夏でしたが、この時期是非また行ってみたいと思いました。

The red post box is very interesting although quite a different design to the ones in the UK

What stunning images, Sarah. Thank you so much for sharing these (and for dropping by my blog). Speccy captures of the birds feeding babies.

Perfect photos Sarah! In Brazil we call this flowers Hortência. In my city it's blue because of the soil of the earth :D

梅雨時期に素敵だと思うもの、全く同感です。七変化の名前を思わせるミステリアスな紫陽花の色(No.8)が素敵。No.13では、遠くの空と山だけが水彩画のように見えて不思議です。ピンクの紫陽花に囲まれた旧型ポストも可愛いです。これからは、横浜・鎌倉観光も増えるでしょうね。楽しんでね。

Best regards from Tania
