THE RAINY DAYS AT KARUIZAWA

 We stayed  a hotel at Karuizawa in Nagano two days. It rained with two days.

                               軽井沢に2日間滞在しました。

 It was cloudy at the morning of the second day. I walked the garden of the hotel to take pictures.

                     ホテルの庭園を2日目に散歩しました。
  
Two spot billed ducks.  One of them was showing the speculum.

There were many autumn flowers in this garden.

All leaves bless the bridal couple.

それらは新郎新婦を祝福しています。

My son and fiance did a wedding ceremony on the day before.

息子とそのフィアンセが前日、結婚式を挙げました。

They made three clocks in a row from one wood and divided in three for us ,for her parents and for the couple.

彼らは3連の時計を作りました。そして私たち、新婦の両親、本人たちに分けられました。

My son wrote on the back of the clock as follows.

時計の裏面には息子の字で「いつも支えて呉れてありがとう」
と書いてありました。

" Thank you for always supporting me".

  5. Congratulations, Minoru, to your son and his new wife. This looks like a beautiful setting for wedding pictures. I love the idea of all of you having an identical clock to remind you of that special day.

  13. 御子息のご結婚おめでとうございます。すらっとした新郎新婦の写真が素敵な絵になってますね。ここは「星のや」さんですか。お庭がきれいだし、池やせせらぎに囲まれた客室もいいですね。息子さんが所帯を持たれて、これで肩の荷がちょっと軽くなりましたね。

       こんばんは。ありがとうございます。そうですね。ほっとしました。息子夫婦はブレストンコートに泊まり、私たちは星のやに追い払われました。写真は「遠目」の方が良い思いました。雨でどこにも観光に行けなくて残念な気持ちが残りました。

  31. Congratulations and best wishes to your son and his lovely new bride! What a beautiful place to have their ceremony! It's a shame it rained (though it probably made the ducks happy!), but I'm sure a few raindrops could do nothing to dampen the joy of their special day. And to be surrounded by such a beautiful place, the happy colors of red and white flowers, and trees with heart-shaped leaves - perfect! :-) Their clock gift to you and your son's inscription on it is really lovely. Thank you for sharing their special day and this special place with us!
