All the arboretum was taken all possible measures to avoid coronavirus
Many people were enjoying the flowers taking social distance,.
Hydrangea is the city flower of Kobe, our town, and we citizens specially love the flower. You may see hydrangea at many places in this season, but we love the flowers in the forest. We were happy to enjoy the various kinds of hydrangea.
One day at the end of June we visited Kobe Municipal Arboretum in Rokko Mountains with Tak's three old students. Tak went the way on the wheelchair and we enjoyed the beautiful sights of hydrangea.
Flowers in the Rainy Season
◎We hope you are both doing well?
We have escaped from cold and wintery Armidale and are enjoying a family holiday on the Sunshine Coast north of Brisbane. We were lucky to be able to travel because there have been further cases of the Corona virus (Delta) here and there.
We are hoping that everything will be safe for the competitors and spectators of the Olympic Games.
Wishing all the readers and contributers to the Coffee Break pages a safe and
happy time until we finally get this terrible virus under control.----------- Claus &Michiko Jehne, Armidale, NSW, Australia
While we have grown accustomed to wildfires for the last few years, the severity of the heat wave of the last week here on the north west of North America was beyond our imagination: the interiohis province recorded 49.6 C on June 29, Canada's all-time record. And the wildfire has come after this extreme heat in the region. It is still burning, forcing many families to flee.
◎I hope you are doing well.
Thank you for sharing adorable pictures. The green leaves and white flowers look moist touch andthe rainy smell came wafting in.
I have been working at home for over a year like many businesses’ person. There are a lot of changes and findings through this experience.
For example, How I didn't use the words correctly. Sometimes I just omitted the subject and object, it caused serious misunderstandings for my colleagues and We were about to be late for the deadline! For now, we have 15 minutes regular meeting with small members every morning. It is said that Japan has very high context culture and easy to keep the stable relationship, however, it seems that it has changed little by little. Frankly speaking, it is not cup of my tea, but I will accept and adjust these variations.
On the other hand, I can find the good things. I never get tired of looking at the sky through the window every day.The flowers are growing up every hour and the clouds are different every seconds!
I want to make small discoveries and I want to learn the names of flowers and birds on your page. It must be totally fantastic dictionally for me!
i◎Thanks again for your Homepage and photographs of the beginning of your rainy season. We always enjoy learning more about your seasons, traditions, and activities.
So good to see that you two are still getting out for a walk, even with the worrying Covid impacts there, and all that has caused and is causing in Japan. This worldwide pandemic is far from over yet.

◎Yes! We need a kind and strong Oni who would eradicate Covit-19. In Canada average daily Covit death is about 150 for the last few days.
We arrived at the pond Haseike. We saw the surface of water was covered with water lily. White and pink
flowers were pure and pretty.
