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.
I hope you like it. -- Miyako
