Aloha and Happy New Year from Honolulu. I was tickled to find these lucky bamboo and pine arrangements at my neighborhood Longs Drugs.

My first post of the year over there is also about a Japanese New Year’s tradition: mochi soup! Please take a look and if you like what you read, I’d be honored if you’d follow my Local Color blog too.
Wishing you a wonderful, leafy, green 2015!
