I adore my #mossball from @mygardenboxmonthly. 💚 This #Kokedama was so easy to make and a pleasure to look at. Dating back to a 17th century form of bonsai called Nearai, this Japanese practice of wrapping rootbound plants is a classic representation of an ancient aesthetic philosophy known as wabi sabi. Wabi sabi is a set of principles rooted in the acceptance of imperfection. Kokedama illustrates the aesthetic's natural characteristics of simplicity, roughness, modesty, warmth, and irregularity. The concept can be summed up as "flawed beauty".
