My Ikebana: One Bloom

Added on by the ikebana shop.

For my first arrangement in the New Year, I used an old container!  This heart-shaped container would go well with thin lines.

I removed all the leaves from the English boxwood branches and put them on the right side to show lines.  But, in their midst, I included some branches with leaves.  It was as if to show new life being breathed into the bare branches.

On the left side, a single pink carnation nestled in green hypericum.  Then, small dogwood branches with their tiny leaves pretending to be butterflies hovering over the flower!

My thoughts were towards a new year, a new spring.  May we all have a fantastic year ahead of us!

Here is the whole arrangement.  I hope you like.  --Miyako
