Agenda for this week - 今週のお題

There you go, we have a couple of new agendas for the following 2 weeks!

With Basic Class, our agenda is Front Facing Arrangement. It is such a standard design, so, perhaps, you might have seen one or two similar arrangements in churches - next to alter? (Well, we are not really going to make that size - a bit smaller in the class!) Let's make it elegant!
こちらの作品は、美穂さんによるものです。This design is created by Miho.

With Advance Class, we are making Parallel Vertical design. It is one of those so-called 'MODERN' designs. The key feature in this design is to show beauty of growing force in plants. In order to arrange materials, let's pay attention to negative space in designs.
こちらは、恵子さんによる作品です。This is Keiko's design.

ご興味のある方、是非クラスにおいで下さい。Do come and join the class!

Beautiful scents - 春のうららかさ

I was expecting to see some roses blooming in The Pargola - but, pleasantly surprised, it was filled with Wisteria. This distinctively spring perfume was a cocoon around me for a while.

Beautiful Bouquet - ロイヤルウェディングのブーケ



The invitation did not come through my door (no surprise), so I was sitting in front of the TV.
Clean and slightly modest bouquet: I thought the bouquet was really telling who she was and what her personality was - maybe it was her statement who she would like to be. Anyway, really lovely flowers. What did you think of it??

Lily-of-the-Valley, Sweet Williams, Hyacinthus, Myrtle (you know it well if you are in the class!), and Ivy were used, apparently.
I wish, I wish I could smell the scent of bouquet!
(I was not invited, so could not take a pic - hence, I BORROWED it from the net)

Just like that - 今年も咲いてくれました。


”それが本当のあるべき姿なんだよ” 昔、教えてもらいました。

The essence of England - upon on this landscape.

Endless carpet of Bluebells, where no human being can ever access to.
Someone said to me, 'That IS the way they are suppose to be.'

Agenda for this week - 今週のお題

The new season has arrived.
The lights has become clearer, and now dancing on newly born leaves. It is the time when apple blossom turns into small archetype of fruits.
It is also a new season for LivingSeasons. For the next 2 weeks, we are practicing Round Arrangements with Basic class, and Landscape Arrangements with Advance Class.

こちらは佳奈子さんの作られたラウンドアレンジです。This is Kanako's work.

Round Arrangements are very fair designs; everyone suppose to have visually similar amount of flowers. Have you seen it on a wedding party, perhaps?

こちらはナターシャさんが作られたランドスケープ=アレンジです。This is Natascha's design.

Through the lessons, you will acquire design skills as well as technique to materialise it.
