More Sparkling Nature

The season for Kinmokusei has, unfortunately, come to end and most of the leaves have fallen off the trees already, but now we can begin to enjoy the winter-blooming flowers such as camellia. This tree is quite popular in Japan and our local park is filled with its beautiful pink blossoms.

Rice for Rin

I fed Rin his first solid food today: rice gruel. He really seemed to like it, eating it up with a big smile and getting it all over himself. (Of course I stripped him down to his diapy before I gave it to him. ) Unfortunately I forgot to take a pic, so you'll have to wait until the next feeding to see him covered in gloopy rice.
