Shin kindly drove again to let Mei-Shun see wide view of lotus field. Since Ibaragi Prefecture is the biggest grower of 蓮根, renkon or lotus root, you are able to enjoy that gorgeous flower all around 霞ヶ浦 in summer. Oh, among white ones found a few pink petals. Some have already made seeds which look like shower heads. On the way to home, they dropped in following ancient grave 三昧塚古墳.
… in full shape, on Saturday when the atypical typhoon Jongdari hit Japanese Archipelago. It went from east to west, just opposite to normal, still continues to walk above southern Kyushu. However, cautious preparation in Kansai area worked very well this time, makes Mei-Shun feel relieved. We and Mars would be able to enjoy our propinquity tonight in clear sky.
This time has come for Shin and Mei-Shun to enjoy 水無月, celebrating their halcyon life from the start of 2018. Looking at a clear full moon last night, they were full of thankfulness. With southern shutters kept open wishing to be blessed by the gentle light, they said good-night to Mikan-chan. And in this morning, according to weather forecasts, current rainy season seems to have gone!
Mei-Shun’s elder sister sent the younger boxes of cherry as usual. Not only this excellent looks but also taste is just incredible, makes eyelids of anybody lightly closed to feel it as much as possible. With a slight problem to be a bit too big in quantity, as Professor K used to give fresh しらす=shirasu, baby sardine caught at 片瀬海岸 where he lived with his gentle wife.
Yesterday morning, Mei-Shun drove to one of her favorite bakeries. She needed to turn to the left at the second corner, yet to the first with no intention. Then she came across it — a silk tree in full blossom. Hello, great to see you in the same color. She tends to choose bright shade in clothes and accessories on rainy days, refraining from perfume while going opposite to sunny weather.
White cotton clouds, green paddy. It is great to see you after a week. However, it was yesterday when Mei-Shun walked to the nearest shrine. They have gone immediately to bring heavy rainfall from midnight. What a pity — horseback riding club is closed on Tuesdays. It takes at least one whole sunny day for the field to dry. And her appointment with Last One and Madoka-chan is on Thursdays.
Mei-Shun rushed to乙戸沼 Park in the morning, hearing today would be the last sunny day before rainy season. It seemed first that all lady’s tresses were cut by lawn mowers. Along her walking course around the pond, annual iris festival is held right now, accommodating colorful ones. Hi, fountain lilies, lucky to see you. And oh, your survival is highly appreciated.
