Recently I’ve been wishing to escape more and more, although I’m mostly where I’d like yo be. I do love living abroad, and for the most part I do love teaching, but there have been a few people that I do not enjoy being around as of late and tasks I can’t stand doing.
During those times, my mind wanders to undiscovered lands, uninhabited by people, and filled will all sorts of vegetation. I imagine napping under an ancient tree in a pleasantly warm climate. How nice that would be…
I dub this the fluffy pompom flower. It’s another one of the strange plants I saw at the Higashiyama Botanical Garden greenhouse.
I think this was my favourite exhibit at the Higashiyama Botanical Garden greehouse.
Although the room was no bigger then my apartment, I spent a lot of time here. I highly recommend visiting.
These mini cacti in odd planters have been a pretty popular trend this summer. My coworker Chie arranged this one for the entrance of our school. Though it looks pretty big in the picture, it’s no bigger than my two hands put together, if you can believe it.
Is it a plant or is it an animal?
One of my neighbours started growing sunflowers in front of their house. I bet one hundred yen that these things are going to be the size of my head by the end of the summer. Any takers?
I recently realized how much blue I have in my wardrobe. It’s not my favorite or least favorite color, but it’s the color that goes the best with the majority of my suits and my skin tone. I need to buy some new shirts.
