The other morning, I heard the robins singing, the sunrise is coming up a little earlier each day and our pansies on the balcony are in full bloom. Spring has arrived and although we will still get the odd heavy rains and winds I can’t help but feel the itch to get in the garden. But I need to show a little restraint as the ground is still too saturated for me to start mucking about in the dirt.
So when I popped by the green grocer’s and they had buckets of tulips line up on either side of the door I couldn’t resist. I bought several bunches and thought a simple ASMR video of me arranging them in bouquets would be a comforting welcome to the growing season.
I rearranged my recording set up to accommodate the longer shots I would need to get the flowers in the frame. I have been making ASMR videos on a regular basis for almost a year now so you would think that making these would be a simple and easy routine. I blame my mistake on the slight change in the position of my overhead mic. Because … half-way through the video I forgot to hit record and ending up losing over eight minutes of footage. I could have used the sound from my camera but it is such a poor quality and because I whisper, even with adjusting the sound in my editing suite it still sounded horrible. So my lesson this week is always double-check that the little red light on my mic is on.
So despite the shorter length of this video, I hope it helps you to relax and enjoy a little bit of spring. Click on the picture below to watch the video.
