I got so distracted with the coming of spring that I missed my close friend's birthday. I'm terribly sorry, Shiraishi, but I hope the gift I have for you more than makes up for it.

In other news, I spoke with my sister. She's still with her boyfriend. They're happy, so I'm happy. She let me know that all my flowers are doing well and that my step-mom hasn't killed any. Though, I'm pretty sure that's because my dad nicely convinced her to let him handle it.

I also got to talk to him. He wanted to know how it was here, did I get to see the sakura, how Sanada and I were doing, if I was going to come to visit soon, whether or not I'd ever get to come back home permanently, how my paintings were progressing... I didn't make any promises about coming to visit though I did say I was hoping to do so in the near future.

I'm not sorry I let the sakura stick around a bit longer than usual. They're just too beautiful to let go after only a couple of weeks.

In honor of the first day of spring aka the day I really start to feel like myself, I decided to exercise my abilities since they're stronger.

I took the blue delphinium seeds Shiraishi gave me for my birthday and brought them into full bloom this morning. They're so beautiful. I absolutely love them.





Tezuka, we're still up for a spar tomorrow, right?

My sister had me take this quiz as soon as I walked through the door. I am a DEP (Dandelion, Echinacea, Peppermint) – tough, protective, and unflappable. I think that’s pretty spot on. My sister is a CDS (Chamomile, Dandelion, Slippery Elm) – easy-going, tough, talkative. If you know my sister, this is definitely true and she wouldn’t be my sister if she wasn’t the first two.

That was an unexpected trip home. My dad decided to take vacation before my sister started the next term and emailed me a bus ticket home. Like I was going to say no. So I spent a lot of time at the nursery with dad, attempting to stalk my sister on her dates (successful three out of five tries), and trying to ignore the occasional tingling in my legs fixing up the garden. My step-mom is pretty handy with herbs, but not the flowers my dad tends to bring home. Of course, I made flower crowns for my sister and her friends for some group date thing. (This was one of the ones in which I wasn’t successful.)

I also taught Sanada’s sister-in-law how to make a few vegetarian meals if only because it’s amusing to hear his brother whine about not getting enough meat in his diet. Sasuke and I fed the koi. It’s amazing how easily he does what you tell him when you threaten to tell on him to his mom if he acts up. Poked at the garden while Sanada’s grandfather played shogi. Neither him nor his opponent seemed particularly bothered when I had the wisteria bloom a bit more. Sanada’s mom was thrilled though. Apparently, it wasn’t blooming as well this year for some reason. All good now though.

I AM SO EXCITED!!!

My dad sent me some new seeds and before our abilities went away I was trying to grow this Hoya vine. With the whole burst of energy after we got them back, this happened.

Hoya! )

My dad has been tending to my azaleas since I can't be there and they finally bloomed. I was slightly concerned they wouldn't since I was having trouble with them the last time I went home.

Azaleas! )

Lately I've been doing more endurance and weapons training. After reading Kuwahara's post, I decided to try working with short-range weaponry considering that my abilities allow for more long-range combat. If anyone wants to practice with me, I'd appreciate the help.

Kanazawa is absolutely beautiful. It's been raining off and on since Sanada and I have been here, but the sun has poked out here and there. The sakura are really happy. It's hard not to influence them staying for longer than they're supposed to. The tourists just think it's lucky. I'm definitely not going to say anything.

Happy birthday Shiraishi-kun! I have a few special iris bulbs for you. Since I'm not there to give them to you in person, I left them on your workbench in the greenhouse. I hope you like them.
kaminokusaki: (among flowers)
The cosmos broke through the soil. It's the tiniest little green sprout. I'm trying not to influence it to grow on purpose. I'd like to see how long it takes without my nudging pushing it along. Granted, I can't exactly prevent anything from happening if my good mood spreads out.

Shiraishi-kun, I asked my dad to pick out a variety of iris bulbs and send them to me without labels. I like surprises. He's also sending the others I mentioned if you want any of those.

That was not the length of trip I had in mind. Barely an entire week. Stupid fury attack. On the plus side, I got to see my sister and spend a lot of time with my dad. I have a few bulbs of chocolate cosmos that I absolutely can't wait to plant. I was home a little over two weeks last time and nothing happened.

Anyway, I have souvenirs from my trip home, so if I got anything for you, come by my cabin sometime in the next week. Sooner, preferably because I have quite a number of large stuffed animals from Cosmo World that are taking up space on one of the spare beds that I normally use as art storage.

Niou and I are making a surprise visit home for our sibling's junior high graduation. Lucky them that they actually got to attend their graduation instead of being at camp. I can't wait to see them though, I haven't since I went home in September. Skype just doesn't make up for it. Plus, dad said we could go to the nursery. They've got a small shipment of chocolate cosmos bulbs on the way and are pretty sure they'll arrive while I'm there. I've been wanting one so long. Best belated birthday present ever.

Sanada, Mizuki-kun, Shiraishi-kun, Fuji-kun... can I count on you all to watch over my plants while I'm away? I have the watering cycle written up and I've spent the last few weeks reorganizing my plants so it'll be easier to make sure none of them get under or over watered. I set the lights on a timer for the ones that need the sun but can't yet be put outside. If there's anything I can pick up for you while I'm in the Yokohama area, just let me know.

The path to the main building is lined with red poinsettias and the Ice Age tulips. Don't let your pets eat them. I won't be held responsible if they get poisoned since I warned you in advance. I managed to get some ivy to grow up the columns and curl slightly around some of the lights.

Atobe-kun, I planted a few of the Ice Age tulips around your cabin. Please try not to cover them in ice. Mizuki-kun, how are the ones I gave you holding up?

My dad sent a few more bulbs, but he didn't label them. His letter said the nursery owners wanted to play a little game with me since they haven't seen me in awhile. My dad has the answers and told me I have until Christmas to give him my guesses. It's kind of amusing, but a good exercise. I kind of wish I could go home for the holidays, but my sister is going on a school trip to Niseko and my dad's been working too much a lot, so there's not much of a point if I don't get to see them.

I also got all the presents I'm giving out, so if you're going home for the holidays, come see me and I'll give it to you early.

The worst part about winter is the lack of naturally-blossoming flowers. I've taken it upon myself to change that. At least here at camp. I asked my dad for some suggestions and he sent a few bulbs of three different flowers that he thought would work well in the soil here with a little help from yours truly.

Flowers )

Right now, I've only planted them around my cabin, but if anyone wants some, let me know and I'll put some around yours or give you a bouquet.
