Mademoiselle Vert, it might be better that Mei-Shun stops bringing you beside her pillow at night. Actually on holidays, she often sleep twice in the morning. Her first job is to open the door of Mikan-chan’s cage. After cleaning and feeding, she takes care of herself, puts several curlers on hair. Such items or ponytails could be a weapon for fragile flowers.
The Ns, they live just next to a bank Mei-Shun often visits. It is really nice to see these roses bloom beautifully, yet why is the parking space so crowded today? Ah, caused by this date, she noticed. On 五十日 read as go-toh-bi, meaning dates with the first place 5 or 0, banks and post offices tend to be busy. Especially in the middle of a month, pensioners rush toward there to draw cash.
Jasmine and basil pots following below came from a flower shop whose owner florist is very friendly, generous enough to add something nice for Mei-Shun almost every time she visits there. Yesterday was Mother’s Day, perhaps one of the busiest and the most lucrative for such business. She felt therefore quite satisfied with their simple job in making a bouquet full of carnations including new breed “Moondust”.
We have 八十八夜, 88th night passed since立春 today. Green tea pick at this time is said to taste the best. Mei-Shun visited a nearby hair saloon in the morning, enjoyed a cup of it (maybe not so new) and rushed to a shop to purchase some, had right to draw a lot. Here she won 1,000-yen tickets, surprised not only herself but also clerks there. Now let her renew the teapot whose lid she broke the other day.
Thank you so much, Shin. It’s really an extreme surprise and pleasure of your wife to receive such a pretty gift on a normal day. She loves flower shades including orange, salmon pink, yellow, white and pale green. Her butterfly-shaped orchid named in the last color has had 20 sisters, with poor one fallen by careless Mei-Shun who pressed a pillow toward the pot feeling sleepy.
It is you, pheasant boy. Mei-Shun walked to the nearest shrine between showers, heard him sing a love song. Looking around, and there he was — quite nearby a lane she stood. Striding elegantly through dry rice paddy, he greeted a couple of wild duck. Then continued to go ahead, stopped at grassed low bank. Full of sunlight, he flapped several times and yes, sang.
It gave Shin and Mei-Shun an excellent, refreshing experience. Cycling around this ancient capital under clear sky is always happy, while might be the best at just before the end of cherry blossom. Chinese milk vetch planted in rice paddy blooms lively, while a white, petal-layered cherry already does to welcome the couple. Oh, beautiful 六臂如意輪観世音菩薩像 at 橘寺, it is great pleasure of the wife to see you again.
