botan - peony

Hachimangu botan garden, Kamakura - I don't know how it is done, but the massive blooms in this garden continue from February all the way through to the normal peony season in May. It costs 500¥ to visit so I suppose the flowers must get a lot of TLC.

Two seasons in one day

At home the sakura (cherry blossom) season is long over, replaced by tsutsuji (azalea), fuji (wisteria) and of course shinryoku (livid green), but up even tiny Hinode, we were able to walk back in time.

Etiquette lesson

In case you ever need to visit Japan, this mountain picnic tells you everything you need to know about how to behave at any social event.

Books

Since my ipod became ebook capable, books made from dead trees have started to annoy me. Like the first laptops, they are barely lug-able. I've been reading Gavin's Book, but am nowhere near as far through it as I might be, as it is not really portable. Here's the scary list that a search for "climate" gets you in the Kindle store. Which one do you recommend?
