While she has quite a few fascinating floral art creations under her belt, she was surprised to find out that her latest piece had the added bonus of changing appearance over time. Using some fallen ume, or Japanese plums, inori created a trio of "plum children", fitting dead branches onto them as limbs and adding some cheerful faces.

Four days later, she discovered that the children had quickly become senior plum citizens!

While they may not be sporting their original youthful features anymore, they remain as cute as ever, and are now another part of inori's growing collection of natural art.
