今年の冬、マンションの再塗装のとき、琉球朝顔を移動しました。無事に生き残って、今、どんどん上に伸びています。

We had to move the vigorous Okinawa morning glory last winter during the months of building re-painting. It survived a hard prune and now it’s shooting upwards.

Snow piled up on balcony flowers, but everything survived storm

雪がベランダの花と野菜の上に積もったけれど、皆、負けませんでした。

Last month, the snow covered the balcony plants. Somehow all the flowers and vegetables survived this heavy snow.

Small house borders large empty lot and some greenery. How did this post-war house survive, and how long has the neighboring lot stood empty?

この小さな戦後に建てられた家は、東京の終わらない再開発を生き残りました。手前の大きな空き地が、どのくらい空いていたのだろうと思います。

This small post-war house has survived Tokyo’s constant re-development. I wonder how long the large empty lot in the foreground has stood empty.
