I went to the hot spring on the weekend and did edible wild plant collecting.
In the present season, a lot of udo salad-plant  grows in the forest.
We fried tempura for dinner and ate.

There is the hot spring in the depths of the mountain.   A river flows through the side of the outdoor bath.  The hot spring water  from the source overflows from a drainpipe piled up lengthwise.  The ingredient hardens and becomes like an icicle.  The pH of this hot spring water is 10.   In other words it is stronger alkalinity.   Therefore skin becomes soft and smooth when I soak.  The pretty dog is an Akita Inu.   He seems to be a watchdog for the bears.

We were in the middle of returning and watched a cherry tree. The cherry trees became in full blossom, and we  enjoyed beautiful scenery.

After come home, I  stitched this by  thread of the images of the cherry  blossoms.  It is a design same as this one.  This design wants to make several same pincushions with a favorite thing.

Thank you for visiting my small blog.
Have a happy day.
