We fit up the garden rocks and made new garden with existent rocks.
It's snowing today.
Japanese pronunciation is `liotalo`.
I whiled away at my room from morning.
Baked sweet potato is a natural for the day like today.
Maruo waterfall in Kagoshima
Shiramizu waterfall in Gunma
ah, it's freezing.
Can you guess how much these large rocks are.?
The answer is ... free!
There was a great demand for these big rocks until about 30 years ago.
However,there is little demand for these rocks today..
That`s why you can get large rocks on the cheap or free in Japan now.
But it cost big money to carry to your site of construction.
We can't move these monsters without a large vehicle and large crane and some assistant.
The holders of the rocks is at a loss what to disposal.
These are obstacle for them now.
I guess there are many people like them in Japan now.
How about in your country?
A Happy New Year!
I am spending New years holidays lazily now, but I was very very busy to make `Kadomatsu` (New year`s decorative pine branches) the end of year.
I made small type like this picture. But that was a troublesome job.
I worked hard without holiday for a month.
In evening after work,I started to make Kadomatsu.
At first, I cleaned rice straw and bind them a handful size.
And then, I cut banboo like this picture and bind them three by three.
I worked late up to 2am or 3am having cup noodle and some beer.
The red of nandina looks beatiful.
I made 10 and delivered them to our customer. They were really pleased to get my Kadomatsu.
I worked up to 4am last 3 night and very sleepy and tired, but I was happy to see that.
