In the future, I'm going to try and place all non slipper pics on this thread, so it will be updated rather regularly. I'll be doing the same for slippers.

Because Heather asked so nicely:

Here's our big winner, Odcem. Catatante 'Pacific Sunspots' enjoying some time in the main house. Unfortunately, we have to pick up our rosette ribbon at the next NHOS meeting

Cool. It reminds me of Stephan Isler 'Lava Flow' with better flower orientation.

I also like your decorative tastes. Care to tell us about the art in the background?

Phrag: On the right side of the picture are 2 Japanese woodblock prints of various scenes. I don't speak Japanese, so I don't know more about them. Directly behind is a tomb rubbing made in China, most likely of a tomb predating the Qing dynasty (1644-1912). I believe the subject matter is the crowning of a young emporer. I received them from my grandfather who live in Peking from 1930 until 1933 or '34 when the Japanese invasion began to threaten the Diplomatic Settlements of Peking and Shanghai.

Faan: keep on me about it, when the weather let up I'm sure we can arrange something.
