Aichi SoE Art Challenge: Days 4 & 5

Tulips drawn and coloured in marker.

A while back I wrote about an art challenge that I issued to myself when Aichi first put the state of emergency into effect. That challenge was to produce one piece of art for every day I was home under the SoE. However, in that time I only completed five pieces before turning my attention elsewhere. I poted the first three in am earlier post and now am posting the final two.

Testing Out the New Camera

Bought a new phone yesterday after using the same one for almost 3 and a half years.

So, I decided to take a few test shots in my garden this morning. I think I’ve found the settings I like. There is a pro option, where a lot of things can be manually set.

All in all, I’m happy.

Little Red Flowers

After work on Friday, I stopped at the value supermarket close to the school I was stationed at. I meant to only to pick up a few things, but I ended up adding two more plants to my collection, bringing my total up to eight.

This pretty plant was in the gardening section next to the begonias and was selling for a not-so-wopping ¥98. I figured, why not?

Mind you I have absolutely no idea what kind of plant this is…

Closer Creeps Spring

Last week, we had one or two really warm days before it got really cold again. It was nice while it lasted.

Our Newest Addition

On the way home from work yesterday, I walked by a flowershop selling pointsettias. They were brilliant colored and available in a small size, so I picked one up. It’s been placed on my dresser for the time being, until I finish cleaning off my living room table. After that, all that will be left will be to give it a name. Any suggestions?

Flower Fridays 01

I saw a lot of different types of flowers when I visited California. Most of them I don’t have names for.

These flowers were especially beautiful because they reminded me of fire.

They were planted not far from our hotel and it was mom that pointed them out. On our last day, we both got up early, and while mom was buying some coffee, I took a few pictures.

More Decorations

At the JR Gate Towers building in Nagoya, the holiday decorations are already starting to be put up. 
There are small christmas trees everywhere with pretty flower arrangements nearby. The trees in front of the station are also covered in lights. The big tree in the main hall hasn’t gone up yet, but I guess they’ll remedy that soon enough.

Tulip Week 04

DSCN0201

Since these were planted in Osaka, does that mean an army of Osaka Grannies came out en mass to set these up?

Tulip Week 01

DSCN0215

During my last visit to Osaka, there was a flower festival near where I was to catch my bus home. For 1000 yen, I could see tons of flowers, buy plants, and visit a cute little cafe.
