In a not-exactly-Japanese garden
Deadly Mally

His kimono, by gofuku_ohnoya; her yukata and fan, by Miwa (akakage on DoA). The fan has a verse from The Tale of Genji written on the back, in a beautiful flowing script. I suppose a samurai would take off his swords before relaxing in the garden on a summer day, but some of us didn't think about that in time.

Note to self: trying to take pictures on the east side of the house in June, after the oak trees have leafed out? Doomed.

That fan is amazing! I knew it would be nice--Miwa's attention to detail is always right on--but I wasn't expecting a handwritten poem on the reverse, that's for sure.

And I sacrificed the first blossom from my new daylilies for these pictures . . . tout pour l'art. ;-)
