Well, this year autumn showed it’s beauty little bit later than usual and now all places are covered in Autumn colors !

Moon-Viewing (Tsukimi)

Hi dear friends, Tonight is moon viewing in Japan and I would like to introduce and explain about this autumn festival!

Tsukimi or moon-viewing refers to Japanese festivals honoring the autumn moon, a version of the Mid-Autumn Festival. The celebration of the full moon typically takes place on the 15th day of the eighth month of the traditional Japanese calendar; the waxing moon is celebrated on the 13th day of the ninth month. These days normally fall in September and October of the modern solar calendar.

Tsukimi traditions include displaying decorations made from Japanese pampas grass (susuki) and eating rice dumplings called Tsukimi dango in order to celebrate the beauty of the moon and  also implies a prayer for good harvest with their allusion to Japan’s premier member of grass family,Rice.Seasonal produce are also displayed as offerings to the moon.

(More information : https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tsukimi )

So,

Here is our Tsukimi decoration:

And honestly for me Pampas grasses  viewing !!!is much more interesting! 🐾😸🐾

 

Here is Violet sketch as well:


Ah, Violet is calling me again and and telling me not to bite or touch pampas grasses!


Have a beautiful day, night dear friends and if you have full moon in the sky, make a wish and may all your wishes come true…..

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….  

Violet

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…..
