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.
… Mei-Shun of Tunisia, the only African country she has been. When she went to a flower shop to send a birthday arrangement for Professor S, the owner kindly gave her this tiny pot for free. According to her advice, it survives well on the ground after blossom. It would join white beauty of 姫空木, lily bell and 雪柳 or snowy willow recently planted in our garden by mom-in-law.
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.
Dear Mr. Diamond, we have been looking forward to seeing you again: it took as long as two months to make you up. Mei-Shun’s late father, the previous owner would be pleased as well. And do you know, it is the last day of lunar January today. Shall we go to the nearest shrine tomorrow to make a wish on the best day? White plum trees are in full bloom there, while cherry trees grew buds from pale yellow to red.
Mei-Shun is a fruits lover. So was her late father, had some after every meal. They used to enjoy various citruses in February, never thought of strawberry — quite expensive, only for inpatients at hospitals, he said. Daddy, thanks to agricultural research and development, we have already rushed into another best season of those red, crispy and juicy babies.
Mei-Shun’s aunt of father’s side, precisely the bride of her father’s eldest brother living in Fukuoka is an excellent cook. One of the most superb is fig jam, made of fruits grown by herself. Normally so popular at a shop trading products of direct delivery from farms, she always keeps some for family and relatives. This time in much bigger bin, Mei-Shun separated it into babies for good preservation.
It really was this time. Mei-Shun actually has fought with a cold for 20 days, had to cancel a lot of lessons at her horseback riding club including today’s. Oh, it seems her waist has grown a few tires around. She would like to go out for a light walking for example, yet her home doctor advised her not to. Mr. Vanilla, Madoka-chan, please do not forget your mom of carrots and brown sugar.
