Wooden Chess And Mimosa In a Can

Today i found some rather interesting items, during the daily routine of buying food and all of that crap.

Wooden chess figures:

I had to laugh when i saw them. The facial expressions are priceless!

Mimosa plants in a can:

Yes, i bought them. I want to find out if that really works, and i never had Mimosa plants. I like their name.
Mi-mo-sa.

    I’d love to have a chess set as such! Though I’m pretty sure I can’t manage to play when inventing stories/scenes/memories to the figurenes with such facial expressions…

    those chess figures look like they know what’s going to happen to them..

    “here i stand, beautifully handcrafted out of the finest woods, carefully colored, only to be sacrificed on the battlefield. bleh.”

    I bought a Sunflower in a can a while back. Mine had a poem written on the can. Anything similar on the Mimosa?

    @ Meral: but imagine how much fun those stories would be! full of drama and everything!

    @ Philipp: i like chess. but i am a really bad player. i always loose the whole army. tsk tsk.

    @ Richard: No poem on mine. Its from a german company, and probably a different brand than your can. damn. i wanted a mimosa poem.

    This is how we learned to love
    the branching
    and leaf-work,
    the shapely persistence,
    in the delicate fires of
    mimosa.
    That is how I came to stand beside windows in
    darkness….

    Today I saw mimosa flowers have bloomed here in a carzy way… They match with the blue of Bosphorus a lot. Hope yours will bloom as such.
