American Indian pottery is very popular among collectors of southwest and western pottery. Each piece of Indian pottery is handcrafted to make a unique piece of southwestern art. Horse hair pottery made by the Navajo Indians is a popular style, but getting harder to find. The wedding vase is also a very significant piece because of what it represents.
Japanese Blood Grass - a warm-season ornamental grass that is selected for its attractive, red-tipped foliage. It grows well in U.S. Department of Agriculture plant hardiness zones 5 through 9 and thrives in sunshine and moist soil. I think I might have to give this one a try.
