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
