Novel uses for plants... which lift the spirits and make us smile.

Eyes as Big as Plates: Karoline Hjorth and Riitta Ikonen.
1. You can wear them; thank you to artists Riitta Ikonen and Karoline Horth for allowing us to link to their delightful and quirky images. I really want this twiggy hat (photo to right) for everyday wear and maybe the rhubarb hat for evenings. I challenge you to look at Riitta's and Karoline's images and not smile.

2. You can make music with them; whether you are a street musician in South America or an internationally respected string ensemble like the Kronos Quartet, a leaf can be very handy when it's time for that botanical solo (about one minute in).
