Yup, the trees are fluttering with color — plum, cherry, and redbuds. Outside is a riot (the good kind) of hue & smell. While inside, our DeYoung Museum sported its annual Bouquets exhibit. Horticultural artists derive inspiration from art therein. Some “arrangements” are straight-forward interpretations, others whimsical, and some conceptual and brilliant. Much succulents in evidence this year.
Here’s the irony — this yearly ekphrastic flower-art turns each gallery into a swarm of smiling and laughing people. As if the fear of not-understanding dissipates. Quite magical, indeed.
