Musically Inspired …Floral Friday

I decided to play “Kosmos”, an old LP record by the late Isao Tomita yesterday. He released the album back in 1978 and is one of the first “import” records I ever purchased. It is one of a series of his experimental works of re-imagined classical music.
Here is a link to one of the tracks:

During the music playback, I assembled three projects for today’s Floral Friday.

A sleek, simple copper vase holds a futuristic trio of blooms. This pushes the boundaries of conventionality because these flowers are rarely used together in arrangements.

An organic counterpoint to the cool electronic music comes through in the woven vase and tropical varieties of flowers used here. To me, tropical flowers represent a bridge between very ancient life and the distant future.

The classical origin of the music is expressed in a vintage crescent shaped vase. The bed of ivy and filler plants cradles a solitary poppy.

The Blue Jay of Happiness quotes Isao Tomita. “Art is art when it is appreciated by someone.”
