Glaucidium palmatum Siebold et Zucc. opened its crstally-clear white flower in my north yard at the same time as it blossomed last year. And, Cypripedium debile showed its very much small and beautiful flower in the east yard. Which species should show its flower next?

I've got a day off for today, after Easter feast yesterday. At the Easter Mass, Fr. Augustin referred to inspirations by the grace of God in his Easter preach. As a scientist, I often rely on what I studied and my own experiences too much. And, I sometimes forget to "pray" in faith to reach what and where I really would like to gain. Gift from the heavens by the grace of the Almighty God is the key by which you rely on what should be done of righteousness even in the field of science. Otherwise, you should be easy to fall into some self-indulgence or faults. Actually, Father's preach was somehow not so appealing to my heart at first, but one day after the Easter, I could have chewed it into my stomach, literally. To get a certain wisdom, you need time and parience. It's a good lesson to me.

I found my radio-controlled clock on the south wall of my room moving in a mad way and not show any exact time since early in the morning. The hour and minute wands of that clock are still moving this evening. This is the same with one at the time of just a couple weeks of the 3.11 in 2011. Hope nothing happen this time.

Holy week begins with storms and heavy rain from early moring. What a messy Palm Sunday! Rain waters the earth; many plants have sprouts in my north and east yards. It is an April storm, that is very much rare here in Tokyo in this season. This year begun with dry and windy days, and continued so as for three months. What kind of spring we should expect this year?

My yards have returned to green fields this morning, when temperature reached 70 degreeds F. So windy, hot and dry. But, in the afternoon, the sky changed its color from blue to grey. It is spring, that is full of changes on earth and in heavens.
