My Ikebana: Welcoming Autumn

Added on by the ikebana shop.

Here in Canada, autumn is a time of leaves changing colours.  It is also the time of harvest and we see a lot apples, pumpkins and gourds.

To welcome autumn, I used the fruits of harvest in an ikebana arrangement. Unlike flowers, they are heavier and have dense, compact shapes.  It was a bit of a challenge to incorporate them in an arrangement!

In case you are wondering, I used the thick metal hanadome to hold up the heavy fruit!

Here is the whole arrangement..

I hope you like it.  --Miyako
