My Ikebana: Dried Pine and Horsetail

Added on by the ikebana shop.

Another pine branch I had picked up last winter was all dried up.  All the needles were gone.  The tiny bare branches looked like sparklers to me!

I cut  up this branch into smaller pieces and re-assembled it around the vase.  I used the horsetail to show some movement.

Then, to further emphasize the fine patterns of the dried pine twigs, I embedded some roses among them.  

Here is the whole arrangement.

I hope you like it.  --Miyako
