Since I updated my blog, about one week has passed, and tomorrow it is June.
Last week I visited my friends' house. She is my first friend when I came to Utsunomiya and started my mother's life , so we have been friends for 30 years.
Until seven or eight years abo ( I forgot ) she had worked. And she decided to chose early retirement. Since then she is into gardening. And now during this season her garden is selected one of garden sights by bus tour for garden lovers.
What I can say is "beautiful", and "pretty".
Of course she says "thanks"
What I can say is just simple flower names like "it is clematis, isn't it? .
And she adds some explanation with bitter smile "yes, it is ******* clematis" (sorry I don't remember the formal name. And it is the reason why her garden is selected as a garden tour site.
She grows not usual or common flowers but also a little bit unusual varieties of flowers. The word "unusual" might not be suitable, flowers they are difficult to grow.
I like seeing pretty and organized gardens. and I just respect her "hard" daily garden work, though she says it is her pleasure.
There, I found fennel. I know she doesn't use it to cook. So I got some.
Of course I use them for cooking.
