The sunlight makes me feel spring! When I climbed the stairs (back side) of Dimbula a while ago, the bonsai of the plum tree that I had before was blooming. It's red plum! Most of them are still buds, but a small tree has a lot of buds. It's small like this, and it's a corner of the stairs, but spring has come. It's amazing even though there is no calendar! I was fascinated by it for a while...! This week marks the end of January. The new year is over and the flow of days is fast. . . This month has been a hectic day of adjusting schedules for seminars, lectures, classrooms, tours, etc. for the past year. Looking at the small red plum blossoms, I decided to go with the flow and feel the seasons without overtaking the time. Still, it's been a year. I found something good at the beginning of spring... Kobai!
