I found this dedication on PatioPatch blog via hurtling towards 60 and beyond. It says all I need to say.
Dedication: To the people of Japan whose many plants grace our own gardens and who have shown us how to create beautiful spaces with a natural and stark simplicity. The quiet dignity and stoicism they have displayed in the face of their country’s utter devastation is an example to us all.
Feel free to do the same. Thank you Laura at Patiopatch.
