The last couple of months have been filled with beautiful flowers. This month, hydrangeas and irises are in bloom.
Friday night, we watched the most recent Percy Jackson movie and had delicious mango and chocolate-chestnut melon pan from the melon truck that parks outside Tsutaya on Fridays. Yum!
Finally, we managed to get a tomato from our tomato plants!!
Today, we biked 9.5 km to Inazawa to see the Hydrangea Festival. I was amused that we saved time by biking. On the train plus bus, it would have taken over 1 hour to get there, but it only takes an hour by bicycle!
Inazawa is super boons, though. Here are some tadpoles swimming in a rice paddy.
Seriously, Inazawa was all rice paddies and farm land. They DO have an idol group, apparently, though!

Some purple-pink hydrangeas.
Here I am with the flowers.
Another variety of purple blooms.
The festival was at Shokaiji, a temple in Inazawa.
These little blossoms were cute and cuplike.
There were also beautiful two-toned flowers.
The different types of blossoms had different amounts of petals.
I liked these cute frilly pink flowers.
After the festival, we biked back to Nagoya and went to the mall.
We got super cute bread at the Bread Factory in Mozo.
After the mall, we biked over to the iris garden at Shonai Ryokuchi Koen, our neighborhood park.
A purple iris.
A purple, white, and yellow one.
They had yellow ones, too!

Well, that is all for this weekend! Have a great week!
