How long has Mei-Shun left 乙戸沼 Park? At least over 3 months, since her 2020 diary does not have any record of visiting there so far. Missing winter waterfowls, she and Shin saw young gingko buds. 染井吉野 blossom was almost over, while a cherry tree with white flowers in full blossom. 八重桜=yae-sakura, layered-petal breed seems to need a few weeks to bloom.
