An arrangement of peonies in one of the large ground-floor foyers of the San Francisco Asian Art Museum. I had lunch at the excellent Museum cafe today during a break from jury duty in the nearby court house and almost made myself late in returning to my civic duty when I got beguiled by photographing these flowers. A printed card credits Dennis Marino and MaryAnn Forrest of the AAM Flower Committee with creating this consoling assemblage in the style of the Sogetsu School.
