From my Sogetsu ikebana class tonight, ikebana using only branch material. My sensei brought us branches of dirrerent evergreens and some red and green roses and asked us to choose a lesson from either book 3 or 4 of the Sogetsu textbooks. I choose to use the evergreens to do an arrangement with only branch materials since it seemed like more of a holiday arrangement. The materials are pine, cedar, fir, juniper, and pinecones (I added the branch of bradford pear when I got home). I was really thrilled with the way it looked in the suiban I took to class, I had no idea what materials we were going to use and I think a made a great choice.

    Greens by themselves sometimes are more interesting than an arrangement with flowers, as this arrangement proves.
    Me Like-y.

    I think so too, and it’s the best time of the year to do just greens.

    I love being able to just go outside and find great materials to work with, it makes it so much more interesting and personal.
