For this day's challenge, I had chosen a box-like container and had hoped to show some sort of contrast between the corners of the vase and the curves of branches. However, on the branches I had available, there were a few stems that would not allow themselves to be curled into submission. They kept bouncing back! So I decided to use those stubborn parts to put more focus on the perpendicular lines instead.
I set about cutting away the smaller stems. I used pink and white alstroemeria to create mass.
Last but not least, I added a branch that connects the flower container to the ground.
Here is the whole arrangement.
I hope you like it. --Miyako
