Hi, André!
I always enjoy looking at and admiring your plants.
And you know what? Being inspired by your photos I have just started my first orchids, one dedrobium nobile and one d. farmerii. I have only admired d. farmerii in flower. I hope to enjoy d. nobile next year.
I'm looking forward to enjoying your next posts.

Dear Yvonne

O  Shocked

So What I think is Kusamono...isn't...?

To me, anything that can be brought indoors for display and enjoyment is just that.  Kusamono.  What else must I call it?

Is there a size for Kusamono?  Are you suppose to use only grasses?  
I dont thinks so.  
Just as Bonsai has changed according to fashion, so has Kusamono developed from just grasses, to combined plantings in moss mounds, or ANY vessel that one feels is right for them.  Even Orchids in pots has been used for CENTURIES as Kusamono dispalyed in the house.

I feel slightly hurt.  But as the day passes I will feel better again.

Love and light

Hi Andre

No need to be hurt...I see your Photos and enjoy them, just as so many other people do....in my opinion is kusamono fairly small plants exhibited, together with a bonsai...the previus photo show a plant in a teapot...I see this as a way to express yourself...

I dont think only grasses should be used...I dont think anyone have this opinion...flowers is very nice in a kusamono

Thank you Yvonne. I understand.


Dear Stonener

The wooden boat is one of many that I just pick up on my walks in nature, this one comes of a dead bluegum tree.

The law here is now passed that all bluegums are to be removed from South africa. It kills our Fynbos and suck up all the water.
Except when a tree is a national monument.

The grass is cats whiskers....I actually dont know the real name Embarassed  But I will, by the end of the day...

Love and light

Dre that natural wood planter really has a lot going for it! Dramatic
Your right a nice orchid would looks fabulous in it no matter what size, bigger is better!  
I would use it as a stone stand, hate to see it exposed to watering that will decompose it...Basketball
Large pieces of drift are often used for stone mountings and add to the Natural look perfectly.

Beaurain様へ

Thank you always for the beautiful pictures and the wonderful explanations of flowers that you post...

Maybe it is just semantics, but what I understand is a planting with grasses, reeds, flowers etc. that is the primary display piece is called 山野草 Sanyasou. The characters are Mountain Field Grass. However, I have seen reed plants, and Irises and Susuki all termed as Sanyasou.
In another thread someone wrote about a 下草 Shitakusa, which characters are Below and Grass. The meaning is that it is the undergrowth surrounding a tree. In displays I have seen that actually use the word Shitakusa the grass planting is usually directly below or just below the bonsai.
草物 Kusamono is the most generic term, and usually describe small accent plants in a three point display that are quite separated from the bonsai in the display...

Not an expert just providing observations based on what I have read...I would term your work previously posted in the thread a Sanyasou...

Nice important bit of information see as general guide line.
you say "small accent plants in a three point display"
That I understand must be in relation to the bonsai size! right?
I have displayed very large Bonsai, 4 man carry with large scale kusamono,
or planting in a natural bowl shaped stone planter found in nature.
Like Andre's wood boat planter, so do I understand sized to display scale?
As for the tea pot planter, not seen as uncommon or strange idea. innovative!
I once saw a Japanese ceramic tea "pot" planted with mint as an accent!,
The display was on a rosewood breakfast tray with a shohin and fortune cookie.
It felt comforting and very soothing, like a get well wish...Basketball

Yes, relative of course....In Beaurainさん picture above with the photo or painting, there is only one display item...So I called it Sanyasou...BTW Thanks for the Stones, I think they will work out for the displays in mind and will send pics later.

No, it is not your name in Japanese...(I do not speak or write Chinese.) This is read sama he (the h is silent), and it is like saying, "to Mr. Beaurain". If you have watched Karate Kid, and see Mr. Miyagi, he always says Daniel San. It is a similar term, but more formal than that...maybe a little too formal, but since I often do not know the age or status of the person in cyberspace I choose to err on the side of caution...and customers I always use the term or something more respectful.

Kind regards Yvonne

truly wonderful. Both, the door and the rose. And the Angel is quite nice too.

Thanks for sharing. The rose says late spring, or early summer. I love forums where the membership is from both sides of the equator. That way I can see reminders of the warm weather that has left my neighborhood. We had our first measurable snow fall last night. It is still sticking to the lawn. The pavement is still too warm for the snow to last, so at least driving is not a problem. Winter will set in soon here.

I love the roses. I have a couple I am playing with. It does take time to get the appearance of age, but they do make nice Kusamono.

Hey Leo!
This type if planted in the ground,
and loosely wired for trunk shape only,
will quickly develop thick rugged look of age,
aloud to run, long branching as possible,
later cut back severely to define trunk line,
then pot for tight grow, less water, lighty feed,
pinch off flowers buds first year potted,
to establish strength for a flowering burst,
for followind years show time...Basketball
