Ikebana 10/22/2014

IMG_6520_convert_20141022213105.jpg

I had composed this arrangement of Angel's Trumpet (マンダラゲor 朝鮮朝顔, like green balls), Sunflower (ヒマワリ), Kookaburra (クッカバラ, big leaves), Sprenger Asparagus (アスパラスプレンゲリー), and Small Chrysanthemum (小菊).

Some small black seeds had come out of the fruit (a green ball) of Angel's Trumpet. I had wondered how its flower was like. When I came home, I checked the Internet. Oh, it was familiar to me.

These days, autumn leaves are so beautiful here.
I have a favorite site to see autumn leaves, but the news said that a (or a few) bear came there recently. So, it's prohibited to enter that area now. That's a great pity.

*Although technically, the word 'came' could be used since you were writing this article from home, it breaks the chronology of the reader's thoughts. When you use 'got', the reader's mind is smoothly transitioned to your home at that time in correct order. When you use 'came', the reader's mind leaps from the time you had wondered, to the time you had written the article (came), and then they are shifted back to the time when you had seen the photos on the Internet.

I have a favorite *place to see autumn leaves, but the news said that a (or a few) bear was sighted there recently. So, it's prohibited to enter that area now. That's a great pity.

*Nowadays, using the word 'site' can be confused with an internet site instead of an actual location. Even though in the same sentence you stated that a bear had been seen in that particular area...it could mean that the owner of the internet site couldn't go to take any pictures to display them on his site because of the bear sighting.

Re: English Corrections

Hi, shiroi tora.

Thank you very much for the corrections.
I had misunderstood that 'I got home' and 'I came home' were the same meaning.
I was glad to learn it as well as about the 'site'.
I've just written them down on a printed dictionary.

Do bears often appear in your area? Maybe they didn't get enough to eat this year.

Re: No title

Hi, Always visiting.

They sometimes appear near the moutain area. We are careful not to leave garbage or so.
Thanks for your comment.
