New Year Flower and Birds from last year;

*Inside of the front door*
As we don't have Japanese type alcove in my tiny house like you can see in this picture page, I usually put my arranged flower on the little furniture inside of the front door. Unlike usual year, I chose a bit easy way. I've bought one of the ready made one from the little flower shop whose owner is my husband's old acquaintance. I added the sheep ornament I bought especially as its this years zodiac sign and mine.
The pictures below are from the flower shop and they are handmade ones by the owner and her daughter, you may notice which one I bought :-) 

* Birds from last year*
This pigeon was from last Nov.; taken close to my house. Looking at me with lovely face :-)
Surprisingly I found this wagtail in the parking lot of the big shopping mall late Dec.
It was a bad weather day p;-)

Linking to  TODAY'S FLOWERS"Saturday's critters", and "Nature Notes"

Wishing you had a wonderful head start of the year 2015; 
I have time to catch up with you today, see you later♪

Dearest Miyako,
Well, we don't have an alcove either when you come through the front door in the entrance hall. Just a coat rack with chest for gloves, scarves and such.
You chose well and I love the sheep with its dual function for your birth year's zodiac and the 2015th.
Enjoy some calming days ahead and looking forward to good health and things to enjoy! Love your birds as well.

Miyaka, such beautiful flowers, and good that you have the sheep reminder as well. The bird in your picture is quite unusual, and the markings are very pretty. Hugs from Texas, my friend.

The flower arrangement is very pretty! It surely makes your home "brighter" and lovelier. Belated happy New Year, Miyako-san. Did you prepare osechi for your family? Take care!

What a beautiful flower arrangement you've got! The Shishimai is very cute! Other arrangements at the shop are also very pretty, too. Love the sheep ornament you put with flowers. It goes very well with the flowers :-)
My Goro loves looking at pigeons. Every time they come around, he gets very excited!

Have a wonderful weekend, Miyako san!

Sallie (FullTime-Life) said...

Beautiful flower arrangements ... And I noticed the sheep right away and knew what they meant! You are getting great bird pictures! Both of these are different from any we have here.

Happy New Year to both of you.

Dear Miyako, you have decorated your home nicely :) I thought, what a cute little bird at the end, but, did you realise it has only one foot? How can it hold on to a branch?
Hope you had a nice start into 2015, mine was rainy...
Hugs from Germany

Hello Miyako! I love the flower arrangements and your birds. It is snowing hard and very cold here today so this was a nice break from that. Michelle from Nature Notes..
