I have a hibiscus tree at home.
The flowers look like should bloom soon.
The first one was already gone in last week, it was beautiful.
The flower didn't open the last year,  so I was waiting the moment to see the blooming.

When I listened the sound of water dropping on a iron plate, it remind me the sound of "suikinkutsu".
Even I was in the kitchen, the sound brought me mind trip to Japanese garden.

This is a discription from Wikipedia.
suikinkutsu (水琴窟? literally "water koto cave") is a type of Japanese garden ornament and music device. It consists of an upside down buried pot with a hole at the top. Water drips through the hole at the top onto a small pool of water inside of the pot, creating a pleasant splashing sound that rings inside of the pot similar to a bell or a Japanese zither called koto. It is usually built next to a traditional Japanese stone basin called chozubachi, part of a tsukubai for washing hands before the Japanese tea ceremony.

You can hear the sound from here.

Magazine and blackberry soda

I love reading magazines, my favorite is I-D magazine.
They have interesting interviews for fashionistas and subcultural people every issue.
Their web site is cool too.

By the way I often make treats.
The other day I made black berry soda with my homemade Jam.
To make it, put in the jam in your favorite glass and pour soda, stir it.
If you desired, put on the peppermint reaf on the soda.
Its very easy and great for refreshment.

Thank you!

In these a few days here, the weather became like a winter.
Dry and sunny, crisp wind - It remind me Japanese early winter.

The other day, when I took a seat on a bus and I saw a person was wearing my hat.
I felt happy to see the scene and it makes my heart warm.
I wanted to talk with her but I didn't do it.
Thank you for all people who enjoy my hats!

Silver dollar

I love silver dollar plants.They look like they have beautiful pearl color leaves, actually the pearl parts are seeds pods.

When the plants are in gardens, the pods don't look like pearl color.

They have shells outside, the pearl color appears once you peel the shells.
