SWMBO was out manicuring our plum tree this morning. Not for beauty's sake. It was just that the low branches interfered with her getting to an outdoor faucet to turn on water to the hose. She only clipped about three and brought them into the house to put in a vase. I thought that it looked very Japanese and having a designer's sense I added one of my Buddha sculptures.
The randomness of the branches, the light green vase and the serene meditating Buddha all seem to flow together in my mind.
Another angle and another facet of Japanese art. A cat!
