Flowers for a Tea occasion

Season: July

By Grand Master Fuden-an Sojitsu

Flower: Tessen, Ganbi, Hangesho, Carnation, Karukaya
Vase: My favorite basket with a handle

I arranged five different flowers using my new favorite basket. The presence of white hanagesho helps highlight the colors of the other flowers. As Tessen is a vine plant and hangs downwards in a flower arrangement, it is often used in a boat shaped vase or a wall mounted vase. This time, I wrapped some of the Tessen around the handle of the basket to highlight the natural style of this flower.
