Not seeing is a flower

In January, my 8-year old cousin came to visit for the Presidential Inauguation. We went to dinner at Beau Thai (yum! love the Beau Thai Chicken and the Ginger Beer Cocktail!), where the tulip in a vase at our table lost its petals, and we found ourselves with an unusual centerpiece. Here’s a photo my cousin with the vase, both she and the flower are quite lovely!

This etegami of that flower vase is accompanied by the Japanese proverb, Minu ga hana 見ぬが花, which literally means “Not seeing is a flower.” Its figurative meaning is “Reality can’t compete with imagination.”
