We've spent lots of time in Japan here on LookCloser these last several months after our epic vacation journey there to visit our VF daughter and her Marine hubby. Paused a bit for Thanksgiving. Then we took a look at some of our backyard poinsettias in full bloom, a year after last year's post-Christmas planting. And for the last few days recently, we've visited a "galaxy" of starfish. Now we're going to go back into our yard and see some other things in bloom or being fruitful. Like today's red hibiscus, showing off for the camera.
