    Both are very pretty. I am not usually into "Floof and Ruffles" but for some unknown reasons, I really like the first bloom a lot, it is my favorite one of the 2.

    Does the second one have any Chocolate Drop in its parentage? The shape and texture remind me a lot of Chocolate Drop 'Kodama' (or is it 'Kodoma'?)
