July Wreath!

Hi everyone, 

Hot, humid weather here! I(Malus)don’t  prefer taking nap at the balcony in this season🐾so most of the time,  I’m taking one like this:


For this month, Violet decorated wreath with morning glories, sunflowers  and a little wind chime , feels little bit cooler than weather outside😸


And here is her sketches of hydrangea flowers from last month🐾 🐈


Hope you all have a great week!❤️🐾

Hi dear friends, this is Violet;

Recently there are many sad, unfortunate news out there, from around the world…Sometimes I just want to shout out: STOP THE MADDNESS…enough is enough…where is the humanity heading to?? Please stop ……

Just pray and hope  for peace in the world. Pray and hope to hear no more news about violence, terror and war….

Tanabata!

Hi everyone,

Blogging after one month again. I have many news about last month but before that I would like to tell you about today,   July 7th, Tanabata day(evening) in Japan !

Tanabata is a festival that is celebrated every year on July 7 . When this time of year comes around, people write their wishes on strips of paper and hang them on bamboo trees, along with decorations. 

Tanabata, also known as the “star festival”, according to a Chinese legend, the two stars Altair and Vega, which are usually separated from each other by the milky way, are able to meet. 

Each city or place has their own decoration for Tanabata. Here I had taken some photos from Hachimangu shrine, in Kamakura city. 

And here is our small bamboo 

“Waoo,Violet,

What is this tree?i love the sound of the leaves! Can I bite them?”

No, Malus,

You just make a wish and I will decorate it on the tree!😁

And here our little Tanabata bamboo tree with many wishes……

And a quick sketch of that!


My first wish on the top of the tree is  “World Peace,صلح در دنيا،世界平和 ” 

💫🌟Now, you my dear friend, make a wish or wishes tonight and may all your wishes come true!❤️💫🌟

Season’s Souvenir 2

Hi everyone ,

Today will continue about violet’s memories in past April!  Sakura talks again🐾🌸🐾


During Sakura season people here enjoy flowers and also special sweets in this season!  Here violet will show you some of them!

Those sweets are made by sakuras flowers and their leaves flavor,rice,sweet beans and wrapped in salted sakura’s leaves. Also using Sakura dried flowers in sweets and dried salty sakura tea that tastes really good!


Those blossoms are beautiful even when they start to falling down. It looks like the petal are dancing in the air and sometimes like snow….

In mid late of April, a new type of sakuras ,Yaezakura(means one flower consists of as many pink petals)will bloom and again another joy .


Now, there is no flowers on tress but  beautiful memories (for violet taste too!) are remain! 🐾

Time to enjoy fresh green leaves everywhere and looking forward sakuras next year…..

🌹Happy Mother’s Day🌹

Every midwife knows that not until a mother’s womb 

softens from the pain of labor 

will a way unfold 
and the infant find that opening to be born. 
Oh friend! 
There is treasure in your heart, 
it is heavy with child. 
Listen. 
All the awakened ones, 
like trusted midwives are saying, 
‘welcome this pain. 
It opens the dark passage of Grace.
Maulana Rumi
