just as it is,
as it is,
as is.
Flowers in bloom.
Nothing to add.
-Robert Aitken

I once read a novel that centered on ikebana (Japanese floral arrangements) but I hadn't looked at many until I put this post together. They grew on me and the more I saw, the more I liked them. Which is one reason I am including quite a few, since, if you're like me, maybe it will take a little while for your appreciation to grow.

These are magnificent works of art. And watching the documentary really does help one appreciate ikebana.

Today's blog has inspired me to give it a try myself...through the computer. We'll see what happens. :-)
