Splendor in the Grass: Hōitsu & the Garden

Time: Saturday, October 6, 11 AM

Japanese art is famous for its sensitivity to the nuances of the seasons. Enjoy splendid examples of masterworks by Sakai Hōitsu with a 30-minute exhibition highlights tour focused on fall flowers and grasses. Afterwards enjoy seasonal refreshments of wagashi (Japanese sweets) and green tea before a shuttle bus ride to the Brooklyn Botanic Garden’s living autumnal display—the Japanese Hill-and-Pond Garden, one of the oldest and most visited Japanese- inspired gardens outside Japan, and their Bonsai Museum.

Co-sponsored by the Brooklyn Botanic Garden.

  1. Congratulations on having one of the most sophisticated blogs Ive come across in some time! Its just incredible how much you can take away from something simply because of how visually beautiful it is. Youve put together a great blog space –great graphics, videos, layout. This is definitely a must-see blog!

  2. You lost me, friend. I mean, I assume I get what youre expressing. I understand what you are saying, but you just seem to have forgotten that you will find some other men and women inside the world who view this issue for what it genuinely is and might not agree with you. You may possibly be turning away a decent amount of people who may have been lovers of your site.

  3. Zune and iPod: Most people compare the Zune to the Touch, but after seeing how slim and surprisingly small and light it is, I consider it to be a rather unique hybrid that combines qualities of both the Touch and the Nano. It’s very colorful and lovely OLED screen is slightly smaller than the touch screen, but the player itself feels quite a bit smaller and lighter. It weighs about 2/3 as much, and is noticeably smaller in width and height, while being just a hair thicker.

I understand what you are saying, but you just appear to have ignored that there are some other men and women within the world who look at this issue for what it definitely is and might not agree with you. You may well be turning away a lot of men and women who may have been supporters of your blog site.
