March Challenge #8

From Cloaked Monk’s March Challenge:

Today is the beginning of Mardi Gras. Reflect on abundance.

Over the weekend, Greg and I went to the Orchid Show at Phipps Conservatory. Today’s form is an abhanga.

gathered into boquets
adorn the passageways
fragrant beauty

Check out the flickr stream for LOTS more photos. I was playing with the new little snapshot camera and was quite pleased.

The only editing I did to this photo was cropping and sharpening. They were the most amazing color.

I’ve been editing some of the backup of photos on the computer. DrQ and I went to the Gargoyles in the Garden show at Phipps Conservatory this past spring. I really like how the perspective on this one turned out.

Gargoyles in the Garden

There are two points of inspiration for this poem. First, I received an email that Jack Huber had published a new article at Associated Content, this one on the Fibonacci poetic form. While contemplating the form, I saw a post from a friend who wants to go to Phipps Conservatory’s Summer Flower Show: Gargoyles in the Garden.

I really want to go see the show. And the agave is blooming!
