#Repost @natgeo with @get_repost ・・・ Photo by Frans Lanting @franslanting | A lone bull elephant stands at the edge of a water hole, swaying his tail and rumbling as only elephants can do, while the sky turns blood red on a winter evening in Botswana. I share this image to mark World Elephant Day, a time to reflect on what elephants mean to us, what we’ve been doing to them, and what we can do for them. I’d like to draw attention to the organizations that have forged a strong coalition aimed at reversing the poaching crisis that has decimated elephant populations almost everywhere. The @ElephantCrisisFund was established by @SaveTheElephants in partnership with @LeonardoDiCaprioFdn and @WildNetOrg. They support the right people in the right places and they are making a real difference. Check them out and lend your support so they can do even better. And follow @FransLanting for more intimate encounters with elephants. @ThePhotoSociety #Elephants #Respect #Dignity #Conservation #Wonder

Pots I Love - Nancy Green Ikebana

This piece has been in my collection for almost a year and it gets used regularly.  I love to garden, food, flowers, shrubs, any kind of plant as long as it's not invasive.  Even better if it's native but I also enjoy some non-natives that seem friendly and beautiful.  The thing is, I hate to cut the flowers and bring them in the house to fill a vase.  I never seem to have enough blooms and I like to share them with my neighbors. That's why I like this ikebana pot.  I only have to cut 3 plants to make a pretty arrangement for the house.  Plus, it's just a beautiful pot.

This ikebana was made by Nancy Green whose studio is in Watkensville GA which makes it fairly easy for me to find her pottery.  She has a fantastic grasp of the Japanese esthetic, something I'm draw to.

It's been a long time since I've shown you any pottery from my collection.  I've had other things to write about, I guess.

  1. I like the simplicity of ikebana

    1. I do too but a lot of thought and work actually goes into a really good one. I'm not there yet, I'm just trying to make something pretty.
