At the End of October in Northern JAPAN

There were a little chilly autumn days recently. I thought the mountain Iide might have got snow on the top. As I expected, I found that there was snow on Wednesday 28th.

These sparrows had been somewhere for one month or so. It was the season that there were a plenty of rice grains in paddy fields. They liked rice better than bird seeds that I give them. But now the season has changed, they have com back to my garden.

A ginkgo tree has not become yellow enough. It would be still earlier to be the best color.

Another yellow thing in autumn is this introduced species from north America. You can see this flower anywhere in Japan at this time of season.

A river and the mountain Sugana-dake. Soon the leaves will be yellow and red on the mountains.
