Sunflower. Kawagoe, Japan. Summer 2011.
I know it’s not origami, baking, mizuhiki, or Hawai`i, but I think I’m going to start posting my pictures from Japan since I have so many that I want to share. (But I found an origami artist I really like recently, so expect new origami soon!)
Although this is just a sunflower, it was the first time I saw large sunflowers growing in the field! I rode my bike to school every day past this field, which was so beautiful on sunny days.
Today I noticed the sakura buds getting larger. It’s almost spring!
Origami unit sakura (cherry blossom). Each petal is one sheet of paper (totaling 5 sheets for one sakura).
These were displayed at my 折り紙展 — origami exhibit — at a small sembei shop (あとひきせんべい） in Kawagoe, Saitama, Japan.
