Black Kimono with Cherry Blossoms

Last week, she was on her way with her mother to a photo studio. March was graduation month. She was very tall, and her black kimono, striking. She wore also a hakama which is a standard graduating outfit like trouser. They got off at the same subway station as I did, and she was struggling to go up the staircase. So, I had an opportunity to admire the pink cherry blossoms design and red undergarment.

Keiko, Her Kimono is striking. From here, it looks midnight blue and those cherry blossoms look like a part of the galaxy. There are so many colors and visually pleasing elements to this Kimono. Thank you for sharing.

Hi Rebb,

Again, you noticed the delicate color. Yes, it's like midnight blue hakama (trouser). But, the kimono is black. The midnight blue is quite blue, but this hakama is a bit purplish. The kimono colors are quite different because they extract colors from plants and trees.

I like your new profile photo. You look happy. So I feel happy!
