Sunny Sunday. A bit windy. I weed our garden, then painted the wooden verandah with waterproof paint. On news program they report the worrying situation about COVID-19 in various places in Japan. It seems now we don’t have the mental margin to think about other countries, less news from foreign countries. Of course, now our own situation is serious enough. Because our government has prepared little during last autumn and winter, now we are in serious trouble as many of us have worried about for months. A shame. Thus I don’t watch the news program, just focus on my own life. Now irises are still in bloom but other flowers are gone mostly. Still I have some for my small flower vase, not colourful but elegant.
