365 Days of Ikebana-Day 365

It’s the 365th day of my project at last. When I started this project a year ago I had my doubts about whether or not I could make it beyond a month or two. Over the many months I have learned to create daily, good or bad, to just make it happen as part of my daily routine. It been…

Two things I have in abundance here at my parents house, branches and beautiful hydrangeas. To make the Hana-dome for this ikebana I used only branches that had fallen in storms during the last week.
