This page begins and ends with April 25th. Kazuya got up early and went to Naguriko in Saitama Prefecture on a violet's hunting expedition. As you will see - he was successful. I had a very bad cold and felt quite weak and under the weather so I spent the day resting at home.   Click on any thumbnail to begin.

Begin April 25th
  In this first row are 3 shots of Viola violacea var. makinoi - a pretty and cute smaller violet.

  In this row are 3 images of Viola x pseudo-makinoi f. concolor. The outlined area of the first photo shows the portion which is included in the 2nd image. If I recall correctly, last year (2014) was the first time we ever found this species and added it to out life-list. It is the hybrid of Viola violacea var. makinoi and Viola sieboldi.

  Here are three more shots of Viola x pseudo-makinoi f. concolor. The "concolor" refers to there being no color (besides green) in the leaves.

  Here are 2 shots of Viola x pseudo-makinoi (note the whitish color in the leaves, what some might refer to as variegations - therefore - NOT without color) and in center position is a shot of the trail through this area. The Viola x pseudo-makinoi is a hybrid of Viola variegata var. makinoi and Viola sieboldi f. variegata.

End April 25th, End April 2015's Photos, Begin Miscellaneous Links
  Here are links to separate web pages - all of them will open in a new window (or new tab). The first link shows some photos of our DVD Collection, an AVI Movie of our Home Theater System and 9 photos of our Sharp Aquos TV. The 2nd link shows our entire DVD collection in DVD Profiler (if you're asking yourself what might be good to rent for the weekend). The DVD's will be sorted by date purchased. You can click on the "Title" Column to sort that way if you desire. The 3rd link shows our entire DVD collection in php DVD Profiler, which is much more sophisticated than the plain vanilla DVD Profiler just above it. The 4th link takes you to a set of pages which show you the FRONT cover-art of our entire DVD collection.
