feature in Awaji Iisland  : heartbeat of winter


When the morning sun went up, the fishing boats which had sailed to fish began to return to port all at once. 

< When the morning sun went up, the fishing boats which had sailed to fish began to return to port all at once. >

The sea of Awaji Island still offers us many blessings.

Soon, sand lance fishing starts, and then spring comes.

Although the cold of winter is the severest now, season also began approach of spring. 

淡路の海は、今も多くの恵みを提供してくれています。

まもなくイカナゴ漁が始まり、そして春が来る。

今は冬の寒さが最も厳しい時ですが、一方で春に向かい始める時でもあります。

Although mountain dies down in winter, many birds visit my yard and seashore.

I introduce the birds that are flying to the seashore.

Three black cormorants were profiled by the shining Osaka Bay.

冬になると山は枯れるのですが、私の庭や海岸には多くの鳥が訪れます。

海岸に飛来している鳥たちを紹介します。

黒い鵜達が煌めく大阪湾を背景に浮かび上がっています。

Kites quietly are flying high up in the air all day. 

Sea gulls often are flying on the sea quickly.

For just a moment, the two birds were flying high up in the air, like an air battle.

  

鳶は一日中、悠々と空高く舞い上がっています。

カモメは海上を素早く移動しています。

ちょうど、二匹が空中戦のように空高く飛んでいました。

A sea gull is on the sea.

Several sea gulls were floating on inner side sea of the breakwater.

防波堤の内側で数羽のカモメが浮かんでいました。

a plover was on the sandy beach

A plover were moving on the sandy beach busily.

千鳥が、砂浜をせわしく動いていました。

white narcissus 

< white narcissus >

The flower of the New Year beginning is a white narcissus in Awaji Island.

Tolerating the harsh winter’s cold, the narcissist that grows gregariously on the cliff gives us freshness and loveliness.

淡路島で新年最初の花が白い水仙です。

冬の海風に耐え、海に落ち込む崖に群生するその姿は、可憐さの中にすがすがしさを感じさせます。

yellow narcissus 

< yellow narcissus >

This is a narcissus that blooms in my yard, and is one of a few flowers that bloom at winter.

これは家の庭に咲く水仙で、冬を彩る数少ない花です。

Crimson sasanqua 

< Crimson sasanqua >

 

Many sasanqua are seen and red, white, and pink flowers bloom for a long period of time.

サザンカは多く見られ、赤、白、ピンクの花が長期間咲いている。

plum trees are in full bloom

If plum trees become in full bloom, we are waiting eagerly for full bloom of cherry tree.

 

梅が満開になると、次は桜の満開が待ち遠しくなる。

    Thank you for your visit.
