In our parking area, there is a maple tree. Close to its trunk, there are many new maple branches sprouting, probably from seeds that have fallen from the mother tree. I decided to use some of them.
The little buds and young leaves were a breath of new life of spring.
This arrangement is all about showing lines. Most of them were very straight branches. But there were at least some that curved a bit...or some that bent with a little "encouragement"! I chose a container that showed a strong surface to contrast against the lines.
I wish I could take a three-dimensional picture. It is not easy to express the depth on a flat photograph!
Here is the complete arrangement.
Hope you like it. --Miyako
