Firework Of Flowers
Summer is almost over...which means the fireworks season is over too.
I thought I'd post this little flower because it reminded me of fireworks. We have firework festivals almost every weekend somewhere in Tokyo or the surrounding prefectures. This year some of the annual festivals were cancelled due to the power conservation and out of respect for the people who passed away during the March 11 earthquake and tsunami. But many people who were affected by the disaster urged everyone to continue with the firework festivals so we could all raise our spirits and find the energy to head toward a quick recovery. So many of the festivals were held and hundreds of people gathered along a river or on a field to watch the spectacular show in the sky.
I really love how the boom of the firework shakes every bone in your body. What about you?
