This was a good week to replant, transplant, and tweak a pair of old projects that had grown unruly and dusty and recreate another. In other words, they needed a bit of retreading in order to restore their appearance. There are new possibilities when the familiar is looked at in new ways.
The avocado green USA “bamboo” planter contains a re-creation of an arrangement I made up about ten years ago. I stumbled upon a photo of the original version and decided it needed to be done again. I found similar plant elements and copied the placements from the photograph. The new version is very similar to the original.
The Blue Jay of Happiness likes a snippet from screenwriter, director Herbert Rappaport. “I hope that while so many people are out smelling the flowers, someone is taking the time to plant some.”
