Tea Time

Standard

Oh, not regarding you, handsome boy. It was served at a beauty saloon the other day when Mei-Shun visited there for hair dye. A piece of cake has accompanied it years before, yet it is not for her in sweets austerity right now. Instead of snack full of sugar, she chooses nuts, popcorn and dried fruits; half-handmade trail mix between classes in the afternoon.

Prompt Lady

Standard

You really are, Princess Cymby. It was just 5 days before when you bloomed the first flower. Now Mei-Shun sees other 10 flowers in full — an amazing sight. First, second, third twins, fifth, sixth, seventh twins, ninth and tenth twins. It took so speedy that loosened buds followed elder sisters one after another in a day. All of them therefore resemble each other, thanks to such celerity.

Full Moon

Standard

She is so beautiful tonight, looks a bit powerful than usual. Listen, Shin’s birthday gift to Mei-Shun was too gorgeous to keep freshness for a long time. It was Saturday when she purchased these laundry circles to dry them, just a week after they arrived at her hands as an arrangement. Please help them to stay alive in good shade, while the couple to enjoy it as long as possible.

Day by Day

Standard

Just several days made Shin’s gift to Mei-Shun bloom into full. It has become clear to the latter why they keep leaves-only space among roses. With size of each flower doubled, green provides a kind of relief for watchers. “It does not matter to me,” sounds Princess Cymby who finally opened one of buds. Her beauty comes not only from complete balance of color but also the long time she has taken so far.

 

Happy Party

Standard

Thank you so much, Shin, for your never-to-change mind toward Mei-Shun. Hi, Mikan-chan, you like these roses as well? Shade between salmon pink and orange, flower bowl in your coat color while showing their coming wedding anniversary, the husband completely made it. And oh, the wife won the “fève” in her annual pie. Let her put on a golden crown to be today’s queen.

Not Snow

Standard

… yet it looks to have been hailing toward sunrise. When Mei-Shun opened western shutter this morning to check front glass of Ms. scarlet, she saw fine and white dots here and there. It has been dry these days, all changed from rainy December. Frozen drops are spread on cars, fences, field and our ornamental cabbage whose formal name is brassica oleracea var. acephala f. tricolor!!!

Blue, Blue Sky

Standard

Our gingko tree finally put off golden coat. Mei-Shun feels that his process to change clothes after summer took shorter than usual this year. Extreme heat and typhoons hurt his green shirt, burned into brown on edge. Rainy autumn blew it down partly, while warm winter delayed it to turn to bright yellow. Now she finished picking up beautiful leaves to dry.
