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
