1st of this month was 八十八夜=hachi-ju-hachi-ya, 88th day from 立春. It is said to be the best timing to pick up young leaves of green tea. Mei-Shun is therefore looking forward to purchase some, yet things are a bit different this year. Her favorite shop seems to suspend sending a pamphlet for order by post. She would wait until they return to normal business.

Great to see you again, little cherry tree.
