I had composed this arrangement of Dracaena Sanderiana (ミリオンバンブー), Monstera (モンステラ), and Carnation (カーネーション).

I've learned that Dracaena Sanderiana looked like a bamboo, but it was a kind of dracaena. It is said that a dracaena is called a good luck plant in Hawaii. So, it is good to put a dracaena in front of your house.


By the way, when I went back to my hometown last weekend, I noticed that my father has changed.
He will be 84 next month. He used to be active, talkative, positive, and like a eager beaver. However, he often took a nap and sometimes watched TV and practiced playing the harmonica and took a walk for a few times, when I saw him last time.
He often said "I don't want to get old. Only I can do is things like watching TV."
He has moved to a new place recently. Before moving, he enjoyed joining activities for elderly people in neighborhood.
Now he has more extra time than before. He plays the harmonica once in a while as a volunteer working, but he looked to lose his motivation for everything.

I wanted to cheer him up, but I couldn't find any good words to him.
I've been worrying about him.
