I go to take a lesson of Ikebana(Kado) a couple times a month. I bring some branches in bloom which I cut by myself in my garden. This season, Cornus Officinalis is in bloom beautifully in my garden . It is happy time to think what branches I bring for the lesson. She is Ikebana and Tea ceremony instructor. She teaches me how to arrange the branches using it.
'Ikebana' is the Japanese art of flower arrangement also known as 'Kado'. Ikebana is a creatibe expression ,but it has certain rules and types of shape . At first, I choose the proper line branches for center ,left behind side and right front side. And she show me how to set .
Look, I planted Leaf lettuce with flowers.
Another one. I was cleaning up the shed, and I made this one for a change.
This is my Box Lunch my mother made. I always have lunch outside sitiing on stones or terrace or lawn. It's like, , I always enjoy picnic everyday when it is nice weather especially this season.
I packed my box lunch in every morning,when I worked as gardener in Vancouner last year.
But now, I don't need to cook anymore. So easy and pretty yummy than the one I cook by myself. but, I cook only soup for box lunch and breakfast every morning.
That's why, you know,the soup looks so simple.
