I am very thankful for the opportunity to prepare an ikebana arrangement to accompany the recent Easter Liturgy celebration at our children's school.
I used white palm leaf as a backdrop, a symbol for the sun, dancing for joy! Fresh flowers--chyrsanthemums, alstroemeria, and, ornithogalum.
Perhaps a bit more difficult to notice in the photo are the maple branches behind the white palm. These branches actually have buds on them. Inside are the young leaves getting ready to spring forth!
After the Liturgy, the arrangement was displayed in the school chapel.
I hope you like it. -- Miyako
