365 Days of Ikebana-Day 186

I’m away from home today, but still working on daily ikebana. Luckily my partner’s mother has a large selection of vases to work with, and some quince branches in bud. Quince is such great material if you have it, and this time of year it is widely available in wholesale and retail florists. Lots of people have it in their yard and would love to have some of it pruned for them. I have even found it growing wild, so it’s work a look around your neighborhood to see if you can spot it. Another great branch to force right now is plum, small buds that after a few days plump up and bloom nicely.
