With Japan on my mind, I wound up searching for everything Japanese from interior design, furniture, graphics, landscaping and more. I came across some lovely (real) gardens will perhaps post a few pics next time. I liked the graphics of these two pictures which are actually paint-by-number paintings. Remember those? I loved painting them as a child... I hope the pretty gardens bring thoughts of calm for Japan and the other places affected by the earthquake and tsunami. Perhaps the pictures will inspire you to paint a pretty picture or plant some pretty flowers in a garden too.
