09: Chrysanthemum “To the memories with sparkling chrysanthemums”
Wooden key chain monitor project 09 was chrysanthemum.
(This blog posts the story of making a wooden keychain. I write about my thoughts on flowers and motifs, as well as design points, etc. )
September is my favorite month.
The flowers I painted in September were the ones I hated the most.
I'm sure I'm not the only one,
When I smell this flower's scent
The saddest day of my life.
"Do you remember"
It's a memory of flowers that I don't want to remember now,
By the time the design is complete
I hope it becomes your favorite flower,
We have started creating the design.
Talk about design.1
It may go against modern virtues, but
I like alcohol.
I especially like drinking sake while looking at flowers.
Why only during cherry blossom season?
Aren't you going to see the flowers?
On my days off, I start drinking beer in the morning.
It's a blissful time to take care of your plants.
Also, consider the type depending on the flower.
I think the large roses have a strong whiskey rock.
While looking at the hydrangeas during the humid season,
I tore up some mint that was still fresh green,
Refreshing, maybe a mojito.
When I'm thinking about that,
I can't think of any flowers that go well with sake.
When I searched Google for "flowers that go well with sake,"
I learned about an event called "Kikuzake".
Also, a few years ago I learned about edible flowers.
I got tired of herbs, so I started growing edible flowers.
Flowers are just pansies, too.
The boom in me has disappeared, but
This year I am growing edible chrysanthemums.
This is my first year growing chrysanthemums,
Autumn is also the season of appetite,
You can float it in alcohol or eat it.
I wanted to focus on "chrysanthemums."
Also, September 9th is the "Chrysanthemum Festival", and with that as a hint,
The chrysanthemum design is also composed of nine overlapping circles.
Through a wooden key chain with a chrysanthemum motif,
About Japan's wonderful events and festivals,
(Enjoying sake and flowers as an event)
I would be happy if many people knew about it.
Talk about design 
September is my favorite month.
Because it's the month when that song I love plays.
Do You Remember,
the 21st night of September
I'm so excited just from the beginning.
"September" by Earth, Wind & Fire
When you listen to this song,
This summer is over,
It's almost autumn now
I look forward to the end of summer.
Speaking of September Maru, it is a mirror ball.
So the petals will sparkle like a mirror ball.
I created a design that randomly changes the intensity of the colors.
Chrysanthemums were a flower I hated.
When I was a child and had no interest in flowers,
I loved it,
When I said my final farewell to my grandparents,
I put chrysanthemums around it.
At that time, did you add yellow or purple?
Why do we still use chrysanthemums?
I don't know if I'll include it, but
All I remember is my mother's tears and the smell of chrysanthemums.
The smell of flowers brings back sad memories.
Even as an adult, I never had the chance to smell chrysanthemums.
Those memories had faded, but
This time, when I faced the chrysanthemum,
It brought back all the memories I had with my grandparents.
But it's not a sad memory,
Only sparkling fun memories
The chrysanthemum design also doesn't look sad.
I wondered if I could make it look sparkling.
There were various memories of September, and bitter memories with chrysanthemums,
In the end, this design was a good fit for me because
Memories with my grandparents,
When my grandfather went out to play, he always took me to the department store.
He bought me a toy.
I was scared when he got angry, but I thought he was a good person.
My grandmother always only bought me study tools and drills,
Going to visit my grandparents' house?
I want to go see grandpa
I thought so when I was a child.
But my grandma bought it for me.
It was fun and memorable,
Insert a pencil with a circle ruler and rotate it to create a pattern.
A toy? stationery?
For the first time, I was able to draw a pattern that I thought was beautiful.
I think it was an exciting experience✨
Thanks to my grandmother at that time,
I think it was a good design.
When I came up with this design, it felt right.
I decided to create a design with the theme of chrysanthemum sake,
My grandma told me, "Don't just think about alcohol!"
I wonder if I was stopped.
My grandpa would often say, “You drink too much!”
Looks like my grandma warned me about it.
I am grateful to chrysanthemums for reminding me of my grandparents.
Thank you for visiting.
Memories with other moon flowers. Please take a look at the story of how we make things!
