Many haiku activities took place in the glasshouse during Sakura Days Japan Fair.
At 12:00, Terry Ann Carter showed us how to make different kinds of books using collage, photo, text, and beautiful Japanese paper.
Her handmade books (accordion, flutter, origami fold) are absolutely gorgeous!
At 13:00, Michael Dylan Welch gave a haiku workshop.
Our haiku minstrels Vicki McCullough and James Mulling were reading haiku and playing flute to entertain visitors in the garden.
Visitors were able to test their haiku IQ here!

I am so glad I came on Sunday. I loved it all and will be back next year!
I’m so glad you could be with us this week-end, Liz. Our team of volunteers really made haiku shine in the glass house with one-on-one conversations, workshops and readings. It was fantastic!
