Dancing Into Spring

hana dome tulips

A step in the right direction with one of my favorite springtime flowers, tulips! This is one of the arrangements I did during my demonstration of ikebana last month for the wonderful ladies of the Calvert Garden Club. I used one of my Hana dome constructions made of cherry and two low triangle containers in white and brown with a mass of hot pink parrot tulips. The mass of tulips created a nice flow of texture and color, and later began their dance toward the sun.

    Nice. Your arrangement makes me think of the word Moribana, meaning “piled up flowers”. These rally are piled up in the stacked containers. The red paint gives a nice contrast between natural and abstract.

    You’re right Lennart, this does fit the literal definition of moribana. It is truly a “piled up” arrangement of flowers!
