On you two whites, Vanilla-san and Maria-chan. Mei-Shun was so exhausted to clean up following saddle pad in blue that she decided to purchase another in their color or beige. Although they do not perspire much these days, change from winter coat to spring one is still going on. It is fun to take care of horseies and riding equipments, yet she has many other to enjoy with Mikan-chan treatment on the top of her list.
It really comes from our garden princess Momo-chan (=Ms. Peach). Mei-Shun felt something soothes her mind one morning, took a deep breath at a flower of this gorgeous friend. Oh, how beautiful you are while merciful! Thanks a million to make her mind energized. All the same kindness does Grand Momo-chan have in mom’s garden, surrounded by 4 “Little Women”.
Here Mei-Shun found 土筆, horsetail girls field. Sooo cute, aren’t they? They made both of her mind and body feel refreshed before visiting 水戸 for a lecture in the afternoon. Summer came into spring a few days before, made cherry blossom there in full 2 weeks earlier than usual. Freezing winter with heavy snow especially in 北陸=hokuriku region would be followed by torrid summer, they say.
In full blossom, yet are ball-point pens. And you as well, Ms. Piano. Please kindly let Mei-Shun express her best gratitude. Not only singing as her excellent partner, you often work as a nice table to put cute items for photo taking while closing your mouth. Swans began to move smoothly on water, as an invisible merry-go-round does on her head these days.
You live under the balcony tap, drink a little when Mei-Shun use water to wipe fence surface before hanging futon mats. She waters your family in smaller pots enough, leaving you alone. Please let her say a million thanks to your excellent survival in lovely flowers. And the same to you, Ms. Fragrant. She never recognizes your blossom until she visits backyard shed to replenish Mr. Aladdin’s stomach.
Mei-Shun is energized to receive a tentative program from Master 坂東=Bando on her party’s performance in April, Tokyo. The former has rarely seen other dancers in full makeup, wigs and costumes on stage so far. Another happiness comes from Prof. M who joined 菊ノ上流 a few years ago. He recently asked Mei-Shun to become his new tutor in Japanese dance taking over Master Mei-Shu’s business.
Stormy rainfall of this morning left several camellia flowers blown down on our garden turf. Mei-Shun likes this unique pattern on their petals: irregular stripes and dots in strong pink on white. It reminds her of “a cappella”, an eccentric rose her beloved father said looks like his younger daughter. Only bright pink comes into your eyes before recognizing fluffy silver on the back of each petal.
