A new Dawn, A new Year

Blown away by Blown Glass Flowers

Wish you all a wonderful, peaceful and prosperous 2012.
May there be many moments in 2012 that take your breath away.
dawn breaks over a sea of clouds

A testimony to precision and perfection
A taste of abundant love
A lack of fear for dedicated labour
I bring to you a most amazing collection of flowers and leaves and buds. For these flowers and leaves and buds are made of blown glass!

A thing that takes our breath away, fill us with a hope for the breaths we will take in the future.

Harvard's unique collection of Glass Flowers bowled us over by their sheer magnitude. 4400 exhibits of over 800 botanical species - made by two skilled artists.

This collection is at the Harvard Museum at Boston. The entire collection was commissioned by a magnanimous rich lady who was amazed by the sample produced by the artists Leopold and Rudolph Blaschka. I must thank my chickappa Ananthramu for planning to take us here. for if not for him, this moment of wonder and hope for me, would not have happened.

fine fern!
