Lovely Whites

Standard

Here they are, 姫空木 and lily bell in our garden. Both of them make Mei-Shun really happy — she loves white flowers. Snowy willow babies from her mother have grown in good health as well, look full of power to survive after planted on the ground. Expecting 穀雨=koku-u, the last of spring 二十四節気 tomorrow, they will rush toward sunny days of the next season.

How Praiseworthy

Standard

You live under the balcony tap, drink a little when Mei-Shun use water to wipe fence surface before hanging futon mats. She waters your family in smaller pots enough, leaving you alone. Please let her say a million thanks to your excellent survival in lovely flowers. And the same to you, Ms. Fragrant. She never recognizes your blossom until she visits backyard shed to replenish Mr. Aladdin’s stomach.

Hasty Women?

Standard

Yes, he is correct. It is not served by a post office nor a parcel delivery. He does not need any signature. At least a few years have passed since Shin and Mei-Shun ordered pizzas for the last time. So funny with the latter who prepared a name stamp when the bell rang. And you are as well, Princess Peach. We are still nearby the middle of March. Please calm down and think twice.

Boil & Steam

Standard

Here Mei-Shun’s new rice cooker follows. This shining black from T. Co., Ltd. has an inner pot of earthenware, easy to serve aromatic baked rice at the bottom. Only a problem is a slight smell of vinyl aired just after pearl white grains are finished. Shin calls 一日の長, one-day longer technique for the previous one made by P. Co., Ltd. that his wife took as a smart expression.

Baby Green

Standard

Hello tulips, it is our great pleasure to see you again in the garden. Yes, you are so short at first, bloom in miniature before growing up together. We look forward to seeing you in full size soon. Sleepy plum in the backyard has also been awakened blown by 春一番, rushed to open their red buds into white. Only one chimerical pink-flower branch might take more time.

Birdy Buddy

Standard

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.

Half and Half

Standard

乙戸沼 Park accommodates a lot of waterfowls during winter. Interestingly, southern side of the pond is frozen on surface, no life seen floating. Old cherry trees planted along waterside might have grown too much, shut down sunlight to warm water. Northern side is in contrast, quite vigorous full of wild ducks, swans and black-headed gulls. Mt. Tsukuba gently looks at them, not only from sky-high but from the ground.
