This is my former baseball team mates.

It was taken during a visit to Aichi for winter holidays.

Due to the Earthquake Disaster, I was evacuated to Aichi where my grandparents live.

At that time I was playing baseball with these mates.

Now I have moved back to Fukushima so I am only able to see them once or twice a year.

I will keep them as my precious friends.

These are lemons which grow in my grandmother's garden.

I enjoy seeing lemons ripening fully on the tree.

I was so happy to pick the lemons with my grandmother.

It is good to see the basket full of them.

This is the yam which my grandfather and I harvested together after I came back from Aichi.

He already harvested other yams but he wanted to harvest these with me.

Therefore he left them in garden for me.

In the beginning we could see only small ones but soon interesting shaped yams appeared.

It looked like an octopus or a squid.

I was happy to do this with my grandfather.
