Ikebana 8/21/2013


I arranged Gladiolus, Cockscomb (Keitou) and Dracaena.
It had has been about a month since I arranged flowers before, so it took a longer time than usual to arrange these flowers. And it was difficult for me to arrange gladiolus.

Anyway, I was happy to have arranging time and we enjoyed talking over a cup of tea and sweets.

How nice!!

Hi, Sakae.

You arranged those flowers in a lesson?
They are really pretty.
And I think that I haven't arranged flowers with a needle
point holder(けんざん) for years.

When I was younger and unmarried, I loved flower arrangements and tea ceremny lessons.
When we arrange flowers or serve tea, we usually try to
concentrate and keep quiet. (Sometimes we chat while we
arrange floweres) I liked such silent ,solemn atomosphere.

I like your streamline gradiolus so much.
They are so nice.

Hello, Sakae.
It's good to have such a luxurious time to arrange flowers and having some tea with sweets.
I think it's leeway in your life.

Please forgive me for talking big.
But, you say you are welcome to your post corrected, I'll do that.
I think "had been" in your post will be better changed to "has been".
I'm making a lot of careless mistakes, and proof-reading myself later and correcting them.
Please show me if you noticed my mistakes.

Hi, ダイエット妄想ママ.

Thank you for your comment.
Yes, I took an Ikebana lesson the other day.
I've been interested in Ikebana more and more. When my son is older, I want to take lessons more in the future.

Hello, 西郷の局.

Thank you very much for the correction. I really appreciate it.
Actually I wrote "It has been" at first, then I changed it.
When I make mistakes again, please tell me anytime.

I learned the word "leeway" now.
To tell you the truth, I visit your blog sometimes. And I admire your English is fluent. How have you learned English? Have you studied abroad?
I really want to improve my English.

Hi, Sakae(^.^)

Thank you for visiting my blog.
I majored in practical English in Junior College for 2 years.
And I started studying it again when my first son was 7 months.

I went to English conversation classes for about 8 years intermittently.
All the teachers were native speakers.
The last time I went to such a school was 4 or 5 years ago.

At the company where I first entered, translating jobs are included in my job.
And I've done English to Japanese technical translations at home for a while.
But, they were what I did long ago.
I've read books written in English, though not so many.

Please refer to my blog;

Hi, 西郷の局.

Thank you very much for letting me know about your experiences.
And I also read your blog which told about your experience in the US. I knew your English was already high level when you were around twenty.
Your story really stimulated me.

I like reading blogs and I learn that many people make efforts and enjoy learning English.
I'm looking forward to reading your blog.
Thank you!
