Day 11 of my 365 Days of Ikebana brought me a chance to have a “do over” of a piece I did earlier in the spring. I used the same purple vase and the Hana Dome (flower fixture) I had made of cherry branches for the original design, and chose some flowers. I have an interesting whorled leaf begonia that I have growing in the garden, so I chose a stem of that because it was beatiful and went well with the vase and branches. There isn’t much blooming in this mid-summer heat so I found some dried billy balls(craspedia) and the last pink hydrangea bloom left. This is the final version of the ikebana arrangement, after working on it for a while it became more of a horizontal design and much improved from the earlier spring version.
