Red water lilies and cranes

Another once upon time model... found on a box near the one from my previous post: https://cridiana-origami.blogspot.com/2019/02/red-and-white.html
This time I only had 10 water lilies. I finished it using a Kusudama Fireflies base (30 modules and 12 modules). Red & white, because spring is coming and we celebrate it on Martisor day (1 of March) with red and white strings and spring symbols.
Each water lily has 16 modules, one module is made from a 2x4cm piece of paper.

Red and white

Once upon a time, I saw a beautiful kusudama similar with Ricardo Colletto's Flower model (at least in my imagination). I was so mesmerized by it that I really wanted to fold it. I even found the video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QxRqTDTXYDc . I prepared 60 squares of paper (of 5cm) and I started folding it and I folded around 20 modules. Then I put everything in a box and the box into a drawer.
These days I opened the drawer and I found the box. I started folding the remaining modules, I digged up the diagram for Ricardo Colleto Fiore and I assembled everything into this kusudama. I assorted it with little tulips because I found similarities between them and the petals within this flower.

Winter sunshine

Today is a sunny day, one of the few I had this winter. Spring is in the air and I am already dreaming of sunflowers. I put one in my window to bath on the sunshine while I am delighting myself with a poetry book.
o noua zi
de-amestecat culori
cu cifre,
o noua zi
de transformat
in amintire..."
