Every day presents a challenge in getting an arrangement done, some days I am pretty worn out and I am afraid of hitting the wall. Despite the fact that I have had one of those long days I still did it. It’s due to the success of developing a daily habit of creating, and that was my ultimate goal (and I hope to keep at it). This ikebana is done without a kenzan, using the flowers to form a standing arrangement. The crocosmia pods were perfect for this as they have nice long, light branches that can almost be woven together to form the standing bouquet. I added a few rover chrysanthemums to finish the design, the colors of fall standing tall.
