It was the first time for Shin and Mei-Shun to see a chimerical 百日紅=saru-suberi, crape myrtle. When they went to a nearby community center to cast ballots recently, it took her curious glance. She has met many peaches and plums in such colorful blossom, yet never for this summer flower. On the way to home yesterday, she by chance walked by it again. So you kindly look forward to her visit, dear strawberry and vanilla cream.
