Following magnolia, 雪柳=yuki-nanagi, literally snow willow began to bloom. Now much of our attention is on 染井吉野 cherry blossom, Mei-Shun prefers 大島桜. Each flower of the latter is a bit bigger than the former, color of petal is all white. She loves white flowers including roses, tulips and 萩=hagi, bushclover. Lotuses are added on this list after she visited 熱川 on weekend.
