Out, Way Out

Hubby says thinking outside the box is one way to become better at something. With which I agree very much. So here it is, my latest creation.

And with the remaining stalks, I made this for the living room...

...and an autumn center piece for the dining table.

Until next time,

Colorful Walk

Our daily walk through Akashi Park has come to be much delightful with all the colored leaves on the cherry trees. 

My only question is, where the heck are people? It's a perfectly sunny, rather-warm-for-an-autumn-day out. Three in the afternoon? In a park that's P-U-B-L-I-C? Hello, children and housewives and retired people!?

I'm telling you. The residents of this city have no idea what they're missing.

Until next time,

Red Is In!

Got a lovely bunch of red, pink and creamy white. Have been enjoying versions of them by using different vases.

1st day in. The petals are young and the fullness of the whole was much to be appreciated, so the arrangement looked something like this.

4th day. Since the white stocks have died, I decided to separate the rest and enjoy them in two ways.

I've been getting better at prolonging the lives of the flowers I buy, thanks to the vitalizer that's very user-friendly and cheap enough to arrange a 5-dollar bouquet.

Until next time,
