My Ikebana: All Green

Added on by the ikebana shop.

During my recent trip to Japan, I found this flower container at an antique shop and fell in love with it immediately! 


Today's material consisted of all greens--myrtle, salal and alder.  WIth a green container as well, how could I make the arrangement interesting?   

I put the the berry-bearing alder branches near the mouth of the container and tightened the structure with salal.


Then I extended two myrtle branches outwards to provide lightness.


A good expression of contrast between heavy versus light!  Here is the whole arrangement.


Another angle.


I hope you like it.  -- Miyako
