Flowers for a Tea occasion

Season: January

By Grand Master Fuden-an Sojitsu

Flower: Camellia japonica ‘Akebono Tsubaki’, White plum blossoms
Vase: Kobori Enshu, Green bamboo

At the tea ceremony of every new year, I use a vase that I made myself. As it is customary, the guests look forward to seeing this vase and I made a special effort to choose the best bamboo.
This bamboo has a crack which is this vas’s best feature.
I arranged Akebono Tsubaki and part of an old tree of white plum blossoms which are appropriate for celebrating the new year.
