Two Arrangements Using Flowering Branches
I love this time of the year, most of the tree branches have started forming new leaves and flower buds. There are so many branch materials I can choose for Ikebana. Japanese flowering Quince is my favorite. Above are my arrangements: The first one was done in class with my teacher's advice to trim down some branches. The second one was done at home to make good use of other branches I had.
One of the few things in flower in our garden at the moment are these Bromeliads. As you walk into our garden you may not even notice that this plant is in our flower, as the flowers are probably no more than 7cm in length

Tsubaki (Camellia japonica) flowers in Engaku-ji
This kind of Tsubaki is usually called "Kamakura Shibori." The word "Shibori" of this name originates in the traditional tie-dyeing of fabric and stands for a tie-dyeing-like spotted pattern on a flower petal. Like cute little girls wearing flowery tie-dyed kimonos, these gorgeous bicolored flowers are lending an innocent and cheerful charm to the bright but quiet garden of spring.
