First Fruit


Mei-Shun’s chimonanthus praecox in the garden has a little violet-brown vase on the top of a branch. When she asked her mother how to treat it, the latter replied that it would drop onto the ground to raise babies. “If you do not want any, just pick it up”, she said. Well, mom-in-law is the person to decide. By the way, you are a round vase as well, Tora-chan.
