It feels like spring today, even if we’re not in the clear yet. Today has brought the first peek of sky I’ve seen in at least a week. And it’s warm. I’d literally forgotten how energizing good weather is.
So I’m in the mood for flowers today. Here are some pics I took recently. The first is a shot of my first attempt at ikebana! I went to an ikebana class a couple of weeks ago. Basically, someone just hands you a bunch of flowers and lets you have at it. Here’s my result:
Also, over the past couple of weeks the “ice flower” has blossomed. It smells amazing, though you have to get up close to catch a whiff. Mostly, it’s just nice to have bright flowers in the middle of winter. I don’t understand the climate here – there are always flowers in bloom. Always.
