Garden Note #90: Japanese Ikebana

I bought the book ‘Japanese Ikebana For Every Season‘ by Rie Imai and Yuji Ueno out of curiosity.


Ikebana is the term for the traditional Japanese art of flowering arranging. The book is divided into four chapters based on the seasons. It has dozens of suggestions for flowers with interesting containers. Several pages showed quirky things re-purposed and I couldn’t resist giving it a try. A rusted faucet discovered in my shed became the vase for a single Ranunculus blossom.
