I never get tired of the view from my window. The green rice and the blue sky. Today it's all action out there. We've had two diggers, a wheelbarrow and two cranes squeezing down the road at the rear - all watched by anxious neighbors - it's a very narrow road.
In the thick of all that the rice combiner arrived. It's harvest time! Again! The year has gone by so fast. The higanbana are in bloom and my neighbor has ripening persimmon. My other neighbor has almost ripe kiwifruit.
Yesterday was Autumnal Equinox. I had told mum the weather would change like clockwork. So far that's true, there's a definite nip to the air. At last.
Off to the sewing machine.
