This is the great backyard.
I like the tall trees.
Birds are singing.
Can you see the baby birds up there?
Yes, I can.
Look, a squirrel is climbing the tree.
Last week I saw two rabbits under the bush.
Rabbits? I love rabbits.
This quiet neighborhood is good for you. You are an animal lover.

Q1: Did Miki’s father see a cat in the backyard last week?


Hello, I’m Jessica Gehrig. I live next door.
I’m Hidemi Kuroda. How do you do Mrs. Gaelic.
Please call me Jessica. Welcome to our neighborhood. I made a cake for you.
Thank you. This is my daughter, Miki.
Hi, Miki. Are you from Japan?
Yes, we’re from Nagasaki.
Oh, my husband and I went to Nagasaki years ago. We visited Glover Garden and saw lovely roses.

Here, Miki. You can have my old computer. I just bought a new one.
Thanks,Dad. I really wanted a computer.
You can write a blog about your new life.

I know. Well, twenty years ago, I lived in Singapore alone.
Away from Mom?
Yes, but I sent letters to her every day.
That’s romantic!

Will you tell us about yourself?
Samantha, where are you from?
I’m from Iowa. It is in the mid-west of America.
My hometown is very small. They didn’t even have a school. So I had to take a bus to the neighboring town. We do have lovely parks, though. And I often climbed the trees when I was a kid.
Now Jeff, where are you from?
I’m from Cambridge. It’s a very small village in New York States.
Well, there is only one school, one super market, one post office and one traffic light. There are a lot of beautiful mountain, trees and ponds, though.
It sounds peaceful.

Takada Sensei, did you live in the US?
Yes, I lived in a town in New Jersey years ago.
You lived in New Jersey just like Miki.
Yes, it was a beautiful quiet town. There are tall trees along the street. And each house has a large yard with bushes and flowers.
Did you see birds and squirrels in your yard?
Birds and squirrels often came to my yard. So I saw a rabbit under the bush. I sat quietly in the yard and just watched it. It was like out of the picture book.

What do you like to do in your spare time, Samantha?
Well, I’m involved in many activities. I direct plays, sing at an event, go hiking and traveling. I love learning new things.
That’s great.
Jeff, how about you?
Well, my main activities are composing music and performing, and playing with my daughters.
How old are your daughters?
They are six and three years old.
Takahara Sensei, what do you like to do?
I like listening to piano music. I play the piano when I have time.
Oh, that’s nice.
And I started yoga a few years ago. When I practice yoga, I feel relaxed and refreshed.
Yoga is awesome.

I made a cake for you.

Here is something for you.
少し謙遜して
Here’s a little something for you.

yardとgarden yardとgardenはどちらも「庭」を指しますが、意味はかなりちがいます。
アメリカの一戸建ての家は、front yard(前庭)とbackyard(裏庭)があり、ふつう芝生を植えています。
親しい人を招いてbackyardでバーベキューをすることをbackyard barbecueと言い、夏の風物詩になっています。中には子どもの遊具やプールがある家もあり、backyardから連想するのは一家団らんです。
一方gardenは、花を植えたり野菜を栽培したりする広い庭です。gardenには「公園」という意味もあり、ボストン(マサチューセッツ州)にある全米で最初にできた植物園は、The Public Gardenと呼ばれています。
裏手のbackyardは、家族のプライベートな生活の一端がうかがえますアメリカの一戸建て住宅。
通りに面したfront yardは整然として美しいたたずまい。
