A weather forecaster talked about it the other day. That does not mean our celebration for children’s growth but distance to a rain front which brings current season on Japanese Archipelago except for Hokkaido. When it stays 700km away from Tokyo area, we could see the sun. If it comes up to 500km, it would be cloudy. And pressed above to 300km or nearer than 八丈島 Island, it would bring rainfall.
Hi, are you alone? Where is your wife and children? Oh, if you are female, please kindly take Mei-Shun’s deep apology. She was shocked after seeing you when one of cherry trees in the nearest garden of Gods found torn in trunk, fallen on the ground. Such sight hurts her mind, while moss on the surface looks so fresh that it let her understand a puddle behind is not made of teardrops.
She finished blooming, made up a fluffy seed ball. Mei-Shun admires this little and strong life, hopes to see her surrounded by children next year. Such idea reminds her of the BGM aired in a beauty salon. Mr. H, her hairdresser who often puts on nice T-shirts, hinted Charlie Puth whose hit tune has been used by a lovely figure skater, yet she could not recognize his voice in another song.
Freezing wind makes 乙戸沼 Pond surface ruffle, while Mei-Shun found wild ducks come down to southern side this morning. After 立春=risshun, the first of spring 二十四節気 on Sunday, ice might have become thinner and smaller here. Hello, thanks to swim friendly to her, yet she does not have anything good for you. It is prohibited to feed you wild lives. This cormorant couple is cleverer to know it.
Mei-Shun feels happy since our hagi or bush clover keeps round, lovely leaves this year. Including gingko in the backyard, yellow dominates our garden in early winter. The latter changed his clothes from green to current color of ripe banana via pale gold. Fallen leaves are collected to dry perfectly, hoped to work as good-looking nutrition for the real banana pot.
Already in winter, we can still enjoy breath-taking maple foliage in Tsukuba Botanical Garden. It is interesting that color of leaves looks a bit different depending on viewpoints: when we see it from a distance, orange is reinforced while red occupies our sight when we stand by a trunk to look up. If they keep green and yellow leaves, we feel like staying in a rainbow.
Tsukuba Botanical Garden accommodates a lot of attractive plants. Your eyes would be drawn toward a beautiful guard just after one step into this institute. Well, let’s stop gazing at it, or you cannot go beyond the front gate. Walking between mammoth sequoias, a greenhouse to grow Savanna plants appears soon. Mei-Shun loves these white cacti while Shin Lithops or living stones.
