Snowy willow babies from her mother have grown in good health as well, look full of power to survive after planted on the ground. Expecting 穀雨=koku-u, the last of spring 二十四節気 tomorrow, they will rush toward sunny days of the next season.
Mei-Shun played “La chevaleresque” by F. Burgmϋler at a concert when she was an elementary school student. Translated into 貴婦人の乗馬 meaning “Lady’s Horseback Riding”, she dreamed of a graceful lady in long dress. However, such costume seems never suitable for the sport she currently enjoys.

Welcome from Poland. Shin and Mei-Shun are fascinated with bowls of the same maker, chose following quartet immediately when they were found on a gift catalog offered by a credit card company. In contrast to fragile looks, they endure sultry environment in microwave, oven and dishwashing machine. That is like perfect ladies who are beautiful and strong, isn’t it?
Meow, I’d like to stay here today. Dad departed for Germany before noon, keeping contact with mom who gave up going out to ride my tall friends. Thanks and sorry, I feel a bit weird around the tail. If you could watch me all day, I’ll be very happy to stay a good girl. Shall we take a nap together, on your blanket? You would wash it, do on dad’s instead? Purr, great idea.
