In the 1967 "Summer of Love," the phrase "flower power" turned everyday blooms into a Buddhist-inspired symbol of peace. Nowhere was that impulse felt more profoundly than in San Francisco, and this album from the city's Asian Art Museum showcases an expressive language of flowers that was communicated throughout Asian arts and cultures.
