5月26日(金曜日) 
見事な芍薬(しゃくやく)をいただきました。丁度、シャクヤクの絵の壷が家にあったのでそれに入れました。壷には「峰山」と書いてあります。紅色の艶やかな大きな花。一重と八重の二種類です。シャクヤクは美人の象徴と言われます。本当にハッとするような美しさです。Ms. S.K brought beautiful peony flowers from her garden for me. I found a perfect vase for them which had peony drawings on it. There is a name of the painter, Houzan on the vase. They are glamorous, pinkish flowers. One is single-petaled and the other one is a multi-layered flower. Peony is a symbol of beauty. Indeed they are gorgeous enough to grasp one's heart.
