Golden Week is over in Japan. In many parts of the world it is still May 5th so I'd better hurry and post a picture of Japanese flying carp in honor of Boy's Day. Not as many flying as I've seen some years.
And here are a few animal pictures. Toi back from an exhausting exploration of the forest. I am letting him out regularly now and so far always comes back after an hour.
Here is Patora in a box on the veranda. She is in ecstasy about having a BOX that is in a sunny, warm place and she chirps and purrs and turns somersaults in the box.
I forgot to close the left-over batting drawer and Velvet discovered that it makes a nice soft nest.
Too many cats. I don't know where the other three are right now...
