Church Flowers 4 Sept 2010

Recently I have been very engaged in experimenting with leaves. Since my garden has a good supply of Mondo grass and Iris, I have been doing a lot of curling and weaving of leaves. Then I saw in a magazine, the Japanese “Florist”, which suggest putting a wire behind so that the leave can be “shaped”. And here is the result of my experiment. The Protea and Arums Lilies are from my garden. Ibonlt bought the big leaves and the flowering Wax. I am not very happy with placement of my Proteas but the 90 degree stems made them very hard to place.

Arranging flowers for church is a very exciting thing to do. You can get the basic concept not only from the different festivals but also from the different colours representing the different time of the church calendar.

Exhibition at Yarra View Nursery Mt Evelyn

Shoso Shimbo and his students (including me) were invited to exhibit at the Yarra ViewNursery y Mt Evelyn.

Though there was a downpour of rain, it has not stopped people from coming! There was quite a crowd to see a half hour of ikebana demonstration by Shoso and me. Then we also have taiko and shamisen performance!

Hi Everyone out there!
