Kenyan Roses in Japan

 A former student is importing roses from Kenya to Japan. They are gorgeous! Thick petals and stems and they smell like roses used to smell!

Some of What is Left Behind

Seems the farmer let the crows have it. The corn, that is.

Standing Again

 The typhoon on June 19th flattened the corn.
 Almost uprooted it.

Two days after being knocked down, the corn is almost standing up straight again. (The crows didn't bother this corn field. Maybe they didn't want to pick on something beaten down to the ground.)

These photos were taken with a Panasonic Lumix 10x.

Crow Update

The crows have lost their breakfast, lunch, and dinner spot.

Unfortunately, crows are noisy and the fruit tree was messy.

They still gather. Can you see why?

Corn fields. They've done a lot of damage.

Let's see if this works.
