Extraordinary Flowers

December 19th, 2010 by saya

This red garbera just totally amazed me so many ways. The color is so bright and vivid it lights up your room. I think it’s at least 3 times bigger than the regular type of garbera.



The craziest thing about this flower is, that it is still fresh after 3 weeks. Not even a petal is fallen as of today. I even love how petals started to curl, showing a bit of color contrast that I didn’t see when it was fresh. I think the regular flowers I know would already been dead to see slow changes like this.



This flower came from a cozy flower shop called “logi” in Omotesando. Its owned by a super nice couple. They told me how the Garbera is specially grown to be strong. But they can’t be mass-produced, and that they take a special care when cutting the stems for the first time to let it absorp as much water as possible.


Because I was so impressed by the garbera, I went to find another unique flower.



Look at this one!! Doesn’t it look like a character from Mario Brothers?



The flower is called King Protea. The form is so distinctive and the stem is so thick it’s almost like a branch of a tree. I was told that this flower drys really beautifully, so again, another flower that will last for a long time.

この花の名前は、キング・プロテア。形も、ものすごく特徴的で、茎は木の枝みたいに太くて強そう。 お店には、この花のドライフラワーがあって、まるでコンクリートで作られてるみたいで、衝撃的だった。聞いてみたら、簡単にドライにできるみたいでとても楽しみ。また、長く楽しめる花ってこと。

I was never a big fan of fresh cut flowers untill I found this flower shop. It’s so much more fun when the flower is strong enough to last for such a long time.  Plus the couple are like flowers themselves. Talking to them brights up my heart, really.

切り花って、実はあんまり好きじゃなかったんだけど、ここのお花屋さんに出会ってからちょっと感覚が変わったも。花自体に力のある品種だから、長く変化を楽しめるなんて、経験した事ないからね。 しかも、logiのご夫妻自体がお花みたいな人たちだから、話を聞いているだけで、心が明るく癒される感じ。photo(4).JPG

I bought a Christmas ornament here. They also have Newyears’ decoration made in fresh flowers. Totally beautiful. The hidden block of sponge absorp water so it stays fresh throughout the new year celebration!
