Ikebana 11/21/2012

I arranged Speciosa (Japanese quince or Boke), Chrysanthemum (Spray-giku) and Dracaena.
I had believed that Boke in Japanese was named after the word "senile" because blooming time was not spring. However it was wrong. It is said that this fruit is like a gourd, so it was named after 木瓜 (Moke, or Bokkuwa in Japanese) and then it changed to name as Boke in Japanese. Anyway Speciosa (Boke) is beautiful.

It's Nov. 22 today. Japanese say "Good Couple Day" for today as 11.22 is called Ii(good)Fufu(couple) in Japanese.
A TV in the morning said that the key to success is "patience".
I really agree with it.

I think another key to a strong relationship is good communication.

I really like the colors in your arrangement today.

Hello, Always visiting,

Thank you very much for your comment.
When we talked about the topic at English class, the foreign teacher said the same thing as you. I agree with you, but I wonder if many Japanese couples have good communications.
