Princess Maria

Standard

Here is her tiara. Now anyone belongs to our club can enjoy riding Her Highness — Mei-Shun ordered this accessory to be attached to bridles because the one Mei-Shun owns is a bit too flat to fit her idol’s fluffy nose. Numerous photos of her putting it on should have been taken before lessons, yet had to be cancelled today in such a hard rainfall from early in the morning.

Dutch Pottery

Standard

Hello Miffy, whose original name is rare to be heard in Japan, welcome onto Mei-Shun’s hands. Shin found her in Netherlands last week, fell in love at a glance. A sleepy shop clerk told him that only Japanese people purchase this rabbit girl, apologizing lack of an official box. No problem at all — who need it when they never think of selling you to others? Please share a job to store coins with our pink piggy.

Flowery Cups

Standard

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?

Rare to See

Standard

Mei-Shun’s mother taught her younger daughter the name of this lovely little flower; 叡山菫=eizan-sumire, violet blooms in highlands. Maybe taken from their habitat, survived on the edge of nearby woods. We admire Your Highness, pretty and courageous. And 定家葛=Teika-kazura follows to join her plant roster. It was named after the famous poet in Heian period (794-1185).

Sweet Scent

Standard

It really comes from our garden princess Momo-chan (=Ms. Peach). Mei-Shun felt something soothes her mind one morning, took a deep breath at a flower of this gorgeous friend. Oh, how beautiful you are while merciful! Thanks a million to make her mind energized. All the same kindness does Grand Momo-chan have in mom’s garden, surrounded by 4 “Little Women”.

Ever Fresh

Standard

In full blossom, yet are ball-point pens. And you as well, Ms. Piano. Please kindly let Mei-Shun express her best gratitude. Not only singing as her excellent partner, you often work as a nice table to put cute items for photo taking while closing your mouth. Swans began to move smoothly on water, as an invisible merry-go-round does on her head these days.

Flower Bears

Standard

Stormy rainfall of this morning left several camellia flowers blown down on our garden turf. Mei-Shun likes this unique pattern on their petals: irregular stripes and dots in strong pink on white. It reminds her of “a cappella”, an eccentric rose her beloved father said looks like his younger daughter. Only bright pink comes into your eyes before recognizing fluffy silver on the back of each petal.
