Full Moon

Standard

Yes, we expect her tonight, thanks to the end of rainy season. Mei-Shun heard that it was for the first time in recent 13 years for those humid months to reach amazing this month. So the real summer has come. Normal temperature over 30 degrees Celsius hits almost every day. Oh, dear green necklace, sunlight of the late afternoon is too bright for you. Please come in, let’s look up the sky with mom.

Score of moon night

 

Hydrangea Collection

Standard

It is Mei-Shun’s joy of rainy season to watch this flower planted in gardens along her route toward the nearest shrine. The first is like bridal bouquets, followed by bright blue ones to bring happiness to couples newly wed. Several more steps are required to see 3rd in violet next to 4th in bluish grey, full of lace. And the left of trio in the backyard of the Ys changes its color day by day.

Green & Blue

Standard

Called by many names including 露草, 青花 and 月草, these blue flowers always make Mei-Shun happy. Now with rice paddy grown into bright green, where is the Queen Egret? She looks forward to seeing them nearby, while has seen them fly gracefully over the horsey riding field. And you, blue-eyed Siamese, please do not fight with that black fluffy.

Déjà Vu

Standard

Oui, c’est ça, mademoiselle. Since Mei-Shun made you put off a cotton robe and go outdoors for more water, your buds have grown rapidly. It is her great honor to see the first of you bloom yesterday, the second today. When all of you could greet her, you might feel too heavy to stay together. Please do not hesitate to call her if it happens. She would be happy to help you by holders your predecessors used last year.

Iris Blue

Standard

Shin and Mei-Shun visited 乙戸沼 Park on weekend, expecting those flowers on season. Thank you so much, gentle ladies, for waiting above couple in 80% blossom. And they reminded the wife of a yukata Master Mei-Shu gave her several years ago. She might be ringing a bell to let her last 名取 contact Master Bando to apply for kabuki dance performance on stage in November.

Great Greeting

Standard

Princess Maria, Mr. Tea Time, Ms. Last One and Ms. Sagittarius, it is Mei-Shun’s greatest pleasure to see you again. It took longer than 6 weeks for her to restart dance with you. Many changes were seen in the clubhouse, while all of you seem as lively and healthy as before that novel coronavirus deterred her from meeting you. Oh, slender crescent of the 3rd day is shining among clouds in sunset pink.

Sweet Scent

Standard

Mei-Shun thought it came from mirabilis jalapa around her place. It might be right, while she lately found her 忍冬=suikazura, Japanese honeysuckle in blossom as well. The latter is also called 金銀花=gold-and-white flower, maybe because older flowers stay in yellow beside younger newly bloom in white. Would you come into this Persian vase made of copper, Shin brought home the other day?

Wild Wisteria

Standard

Mei-Shun feels grateful to see one on the top of backyard camphor tree. It was really by chance for her to catch the flowers of bluish violet into eyes, thorough a wide oriel window in the living room with a wooden bench attached inside. She sat on it chatting with her mother by phone, looked up the sky to keep hung futon mats dry. Now is the time to hang up and bring them in.

Flower Balls

Standard

Yes, Mei-Shun went to see 八重桜 at 乙戸沼 Park with Shin on weekend. After a heavy  rainfall on Saturday, bright pink flowers still with dewdrops on petals welcomed the couple gently. They walked all around the pond, taking many photos. Some trees planted nearby entrance gate look a bit tight, while others on another side relaxed enough to reach their branch widely.

CU Sakura

Standard

Mei-Shun walked to the nearest shrine after almost a month. A few 染井吉野 cherry flowers, thanks a lot for staying to say good-bye to her. She is quite sure to greet you attached to Gods again here. Oh, you reminds her of your pretty sister 八重桜=yae-sakura, petal-layered cherry in 乙戸沼 Park. All right, she would visit them after seeing her home dermatologist Dr. I.
