いつも、花のこと。 ("itsumo hana no koto" translates: Always, about flowers) is a beautiful book by a flower stylist Kazumi Hirai of ikanika which has been recently published. ikanika is my favourite cafe near Jiyugaoaka which Kazumi san and her husband own, and it is also used as an atelier where Kazumi san gives flower arrangement classes. The modest and delicate way she always present flowers at ikanika is so welcoming and really lovely. So when I asked Kazumi san if she could do my wedding flowers and when she happily accepted, I was really thrilled! She is such a lovely lady so sweet and gentle with some hidden powerful energy, just like her flowers.
The following are some left over flowers from the wedding I enjoyed at home afterward. The autumn hydrangeas are still looking pretty now and they make me smile :)
