Meow, mom’s mom is very happy to find a 桔梗=kikyo or balloon flower bloomed in her garden of 草津 cottage. Compared to previous one, it seems to have layered petal. So grandma is wondering if such shape is caused by a mutation, or natural crossbreeding. She would come back at the beginning of next month, rush toward her main computer to search, ask questions and report on the result.

Tokyo to Kyoto


Shin and Mei-Shun are really happy to make one-night trip together, for the first time in these two years hit by that novel coronavirus. First, the wife visited a salon nearby our capital station at 14 : 00, got her hair curled after 10 months. Then the husband gave her a message as for a Shinkansen. Now the couple have got on a Nozomi bullet train to start at 16 : 30.

Yellow Yawn


You seem like, Princess Cymby. Taking nearly a whole month, younger bud finally started to bloom. It is really amazing to see her loosen fists one after another in greenish shade. By the way, following image is ready for 蝋梅 or wintersweet flowers, isn’t it? Coming from mom’s garden, it was expected by Mei-Shun to show fragrant dresses around new year.

Which First?


Mademoiselle Vert and Princess Cymby both have flower buds now, makes Mei-Shun feel really pleased who missed the latter last year. Drinking a lot of water, they seem to compete with each other. So time goes ahead toward winter as the big gingko tree in the garden of 日先神社 took off a beautiful golden coat, put it on the ground to make a gorgeous carpet.

Great Green


Mademoiselle Vert seems to have a flower bud again. Latest ones kept amazing longevity of over 3 months, let Mei-Shun feel grand admiration for them all through this torrid summer. According to pieces of advice, phalaenopsis roots are not easy to separate. So you are happy to stay there, looking full of the pot you lived first. Please just do not work too hard.

CU Again


The pupa on a grapefruit pot Mei-Shun grows had emerged a few days before to fly away.  Summer is really full of new lives — cicadas sing from early in the morning, born one after another. Most of them around here have simple buzzing voice, while some say mean-mean, what-shah-shah and tuk-tuk-ossy. Her favorite is the last one with green body and crystal-clear wings.


Déjà Vu


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.

Bye and Hi


Mei-Shun found a fluffy ball of dandelion seed in the eastern veranda. She loves such a strong plant who lives a short, pretty life on narrow soil. Please, honey, come back to see her again next year. Another finding indoors was at the foot of Mademoiselle Vert. It looks all different from little leaf buds grew on her top. Are you going up or down, while to … bloom?
