Friday…

Filed Under : Summer

I needed to revamp the ikebana today, but I have so much orange in the garden at the moment I just wanted to use some subtler colours…
The honeysuckle smells amazing so I thought I’d try to use some…
…as well as a tiny piece of fennel as I didn’t want to pick the large flowers…
and as this evergreen shrub ( I’m not entirely sure what it is ) is flowering too, I thought it would provide some frothy texture…
I started to arrange the honeysuckle…
…but just couldn’t get it to flow
So I took it all out and just used a stem which didn’t have many flowers on…
I then added poppy stems and fennel…
…and had a bit more of a fiddle before I was happy to leave it alone!

      Thanks Emma! Yes, sometimes things just don’t go the way I’d hoped but then something else seems to happen… ( I think the workshop may be in early November as I’m sorting out the place to have it…will keep you posted) x
