Flowers for a Tea occasion
By Grand Master Fuden-an Sojitsu
Flower: 'kamohonami-tsubaki' or species of camellia, 'robai' or species of plum tree.
Vase: Old bronze vase of Chinese manufacture of the 15th century.
When hearing the word December, everyone suddenly gets busy in tying up loose ends and whatnot. In this respect, the floral arrangement for this period must be calming. The camellia expresses stability and plum represents the season.
