My Ikebana: Garden Branches

Added on by the ikebana shop.

One of the greatest joys for an ikebanista is to be able to wander around a large garden and gather branches to one's heart's content.  A few days ago, I had that opportunity because I conducted a workshop sponsored by the Halifax Public Gardens.  (See previous post.)  

There were leftover branches after the workshop.  I used them.  This is my thank-you-to-the-Gardens arrangement!

Dogwood and magnolia...

Lilac and other branches whose names I didn't know!

The arrangement is currently displayed at the shop.  

I hope you like it.  -- Miyako
