With being ill I was forced to cancel a few of my classes which was a real shame right before the summer holidays. I won't see all my lovely friends until September now.
I decided to send out a few summer postcards to everyone affected. The friendly clerk at the post office had 'sold' the postcards to me a few weeks ago. They are special for this time of year and include a lottery ticket! Fun!
Just now I received a return postcard by email . Isn't it pretty? It's hand painted (scanned).
This is the explanation:
浜木綿、Hamayuu,Chrinum asiaticum are in bloom in summer on the beach and they have good perfume.
浜、Hama means beach in Japanese.
I love it!
And I enjoy this summer tradition of exchanging a brief greeting. I must remember to do it again next year.
