Now these cute purple flowers are blooming outside my house on the shore in Fukuoka Japan.

Their name is Hamago (Vitex rotundifolia).

I think the leaves are cute, too.


Seaside (Finland)

I walked along the seaside in Helsinki.

The sea was shining.

And I met many kinds of birds.

It is rare to be able to see swans in Japan. 

I thought Helsinki is looks a little bit like  Seattle.
