Flowers for a Tea occasion

Season: May
By Grand Master Fuden-an Sojitsu

Flower: “hangesho”, “himeyuri” or a type of lily, “nadeshiko” or Chinese carnation, “torano-o”, bellflower, “kasenso” and “karikaya”
Vase: Canoe-shaped hanging vase made of old copper



I made this flower arrangement for the second part of an official tea ceremony. It is important to place the seven flowers so that the colors of these are well coordinated. The contrast between the white and the green of the hangesho shapen the arrangement as a whole.
