My Ikebana: Pink Like Sakura

Added on by the ikebana shop.

Spring comes late in Halifax.  I put together this arrangement early April of this year.  The sakura were already blooming in Tokyo and I longed to see them.  I decided then to use pink blossoms--a mix of spray carnations and alstroemeria--to remind me of pink sakura.

I took care not to let the flowers and branches sit heavily onto the vase.  Rather, I made them "float" a bit from the mouth of the container.  This lent an air of fragility to the arrangement.

Here is the whole arrangement.


I hope you like it.  -- Miyako
