Hi Lotusgreen,
I am returning to blogging after an interlude that was too long and undesired. Paradise was still waiting for me here.

Further proof that ' less is more'

I try to din this principle into the heads of my students. Some get it. Some don't. The ones who get it progress a lot faster. :)
I learned from a Japanese landscaper to cram the new garden with potted plants, and then take them away, one by one, until the design would fall apart if we removed one more plant.
The resulting delicious tension between the remaining few plants made the garden crackle with energy.
