I must apologize for the delay in blog posts. Karatsu is near enough to Kumamoto to experience small quakes and aftershocks so posting and flower arranging haven’t been a priority. The tremors don’t appear to be stopping any time soon, too. I woke up to a level 2 the other night. It was pretty scary in the beginning as I have never been through an big earthquake before. So now my arrangements sit on the floor of my kitchen. I don’t want to break my only vase nor do I want to accidentally kill my fish.
