Henry comes in to say hellow, as it's been a while;
Cousin Judy gave me the above succulent a while ago and it is now blooming:
My first bearded iris blooming this year. When enlarged I see a camels head/face. Do you?
And do you see how the yellows and purples of the flowers come out in this outstanding piece I purchased from our own Suki Poet: Remember to double click to enlarge the photos to see the details. Suki, this reminds me of an ark of the covenant, that holds the holy Torah in our temple. And the wisps of threads that sweep across it remind me of the tassels on our prayer shawls, tallet.
I am so happy to have this piece of wonderful art of yours called Housekeeper's Shield in my home. It came to me from New Zealand where it was in a museum show.
