Joy of Green

Standard

Necklace finally bloomed. Mei-Shun was very happy when saw one flower in a pot, happier as others follow in a few days. Since several buds were grown outdoors, she let them join indoor friends. On the other hand, 豆苗 or pea seedlings came to her kitchen for the first time. According to an explanation, second harvest would be available in a few weeks. How do you feel in this package of Cobb salad?

First Buds!

Standard

Here is a young 蝋梅=robai, chimonanthus praecox tree Mei-Shun brought from her mother’s garden. It took three years to be ready to bloom perhaps, like Momo-chan did. The former her late father loved, while the latter mother does missing her own mother. Since the cymbidium Ms. Yellow Card pods bring no shade of flower this winter, it would be your turn, 金ちゃん or Mr. Gold, named right now.

 

Healthy Green

Standard

Hello darling, a baby leaf of Mademoiselle Vert. So sorry for keeping you thirsty during Shin and Mei-Shun’s trip. It has been rainy, yet too cold to let you stay on the balcony. And oh, regarding outdoors, the wife found one of green necklace pots have several buds. Would you show those white, little flowers soon? Since weather forecasts say it would be freezing tonight, she is happy to let you in.

Rare Shots

Standard

Hi, little lizard, great to see you. Geckos often visit Mei-Shun indoors, while you stay outdoors. The former tend to come friendly into her sight, yet the latter rush below grasses when she greets you in the garden. Do you feel cooler there? And oh, lady beetle, it was you who sounded weird between a shutter and a window. So sorry for leaving you, who looks exhausted. Would you like some watermelon?

She might prefer climbing to eating.

Tasty Cat

Standard

He, le chat aux yeux d’or, comes from 友部 Service Area on 常磐 Highway. When Shin and Mei-Shun dropped in there returning from 水戸, they were lucky enough to encounter stalls of pottery. Many pretty bowls for natto, fermented soybeans, were featured this time. After scrutinizing every shop, they decided to bring him home. Please help Shin to diet, darling.

Lovely Guests

Standard

Have you kind followers seen cactus flower? Mickey-face one in mom-in-law’s garden suddenly went into lemon-yellow bloom last month. Baby mantis, great to see you again. And your appearance on the floor of Shin and Mei-Shun is really appreciated, gecko darling. Hey Tora-chan, please do not try to assault the latter after shower. She is already in pajamas, would not like your paws walked outdoors.

Go Cool

Standard

Lunar May starts from today. Chestnut trees are already in full bloom, giving sweet scent which let Mei-Shun feel coming rainy season. Rice paddy is growing enough to hide waterfowls among green stripes. Black Tea rose in our garden bloomed well this spring, with the last flower in autumnal shade. And Ms. Last One, here is a summer saddle pad for you.
