A Scape With The Lotus....:):)

In most cold countries, at the time when it looks like winter will never come to an end, the sight of cheerful delicate flowers like Daffodils, reminds us of the resurgence of natural life that is beginning just outside the window.
    
The freshness of Spring is perhaps best expressed with the colours of soft Yellows, Greens, Blues and White. Keeping that in mind while making a table for two, I used a touch of Copper-sulphate  Blue, White and basketful of Eggs for the season most delightful.
         
The flowers I arranged in the vase here are the beautiful white Lotus. The Lotus is a sacred flower in some Eastern countries and is the national flower of India. It is a beautiful sight to see several of them float in a Lotus pond & is a special delight to find beautiful Lotus and Lily ponds in the interior villages of Southern India. 

The Lotus flower is the symbol of Purity, Faith and Hope because although it grows from within the muck of water, it  blooms into a gorgeous flower and it sustains to adverse weather conditions. The flower has captured the hearts of numerous poets. Though I am not a poet who could write about this flower, I was happy to do a scape with the beautiful Lotus flower, a flower which is of hope or rebirth...

  1. Your Lotus theme is so lovely and I think all of your blue crystal is so elegant. Your rabbits, including the blue and white candle ones, speak of spring. I cannot wait, until the rabbits that usually live near our back yard start making their appearance this year. Thank you for the beautiful post!
