Perfect Ikebana by Nature

    Newer Older

    I saw this perfectly arranged branch crowning the flowering Viburnum shrub on a recent walk along Toronto's Harbourfront in our Music Garden :-) It made me think of Ikebana, a Japanese art of arranging flowers :-)

    Fritter and Waste, Sibilus_Basilea, and 20 other people added this photo to their favorites.
