This creative composition focuses on twigs that cover the white basket in a circular pattern. The pink cytisus finds its place among the twigs, and a dyed carnation is hidden below a silvery leaf.

Late Winter

Late Winter

While searching for information on lotus pods on the net, I cam accross an interesting phenomenon - trypophobia - the fear of holes. The lotus pod, it seems, is a classical trigger for such an anxiety attack.

Given the chance, the white vase stands nicely on its own as well.

A composition under the theme ‘stillness of winter’ realized through lotus pods, blueberry twigs, birch twigs and a fluffy variety of green true grass. The shiny silver twigs remind me of stiff, cold icicles, and the flowerless pods are a sign of the ‘dead season’. However, green is never completely out of the picture, even under the snow: the blueberry twigs are already budding and the second moribana bowl repeats the green colour of the lotus pods.

January

My husband assembled a new piece of kitchen furniture; I immediately decorated it with this green flower arrangement, which looks nice with the turquoise/blue curtain and the Japanese bowl that stands on four little legs. Behind, you can see the bottom half of my 2013 ikebana calendar, which, in turn, portrays a seasonal pine arrangement.
