My Ikebana: Natural Style

Added on by the ikebana shop.

This time I made an arrangement in a more orthodox and natural style.

Last week, a customer came to the shop bringing a big branch.  She said she had found it on the sidewalk.  She knew I loved getting branches!  It was that branch that I used for this arrangement.  Thank you very much!

I used red carnations, white pom pom mums and a sprinkling of pine.

See the buds?  The branches were holding out the promise of spring!

Here is the complete arrangement.  I imagined it would be appropriate at an entrance lobby of a restaurant or ryokan (Japanese style inn).

We put it in our shop instead!  :-)  Sorry but we don't have a lot of space these days so it had to be together with some other things!
