I love this room with views

Views from our balcony windows include…

…a dozen of persimmon trees bearing fruits. We’ve seen the fruits turn from green to yellow to orange since we moved here.

The balcony faces a high school campus with the persimmon trees…

… that’s is beyond a wall.

And across the campus and a street, I can see people getting on and off  buses every day, when I don’t have to commute to my office.

  1. Hello ~ Thank you for stopping by my blog and leaving kind comments. I enjoyed looking at your pictures. It allowed me to take a virtual tour of your country. I had never seen a persimmon tree before and I am not sure if I have eaten one!

  2. Hi Deb! Thanks for coming and your interest in the photos! Persinmmon has a special, unique flavor I cannot name. It’s distinctly strong, just like ginger, corriander or celery. I love all these vegetables with special strong flavors, except one: the roots of “Herba Houttuyniae”

    This made me doubt whether I would truly love all the vegetables with distinctly strong flavors. The roots, to me, were sickening. But when people get used to them, they love it. But I don’t want to try even though it might turn out to be another “bitter gourd”, which I came to love it in summer. It’s bitter, but it’s good.

    Deb, I enjoyed a lot reading your blog posts and will follow your blogging. 🙂
