    Just stumbled upon these four threads in the Formosa CP forum.

    They show photographs from the gardens of a Taiwanese forum member.

    What beauty! What style!

    Not to be German about it, shokuchuu, but AFAISTUI, "ikebana" (cha1hua1 in Chinese) means nothing less and nothing more than "flower arrangement" (literally "flower insertion").
    (see also http://www.itjp.org/dic/shumi.htm)

    And what else is this garden but a magnificent example of artful flower arrangement?

    To go from the greenhouse to the garden... how wonderful and beautiful! Thanks for posting these links, we never would have seen them otherwise.

    Ikebana is also a very specific and defined type of flower arrangement. It can take years of study to become proficient in its form. Probably what Shokuchuu was refering too.

    Is that a Nepenthes in your pocket or you just happy to see me?
