Ikebana 9/18/2013

I arranged Broom (石化エニシダ), Cockscomb (ケイトウ) and Dracaena (ドラセナ).

It is said that the Broom was named after this tree which a witch used when she flew in the sky.

And my teacher taught me that the Cockscomb has its face (or front).
Wow. I've learned Ikebana for nearly twenty years, but I didn't know that.

↓The face of the Cockscomb has a part like trimmed short.

So when you arrange Cockscomb, you usually make its face front in our school.

Hi, Sakae

Thank you for showing a nice flower arrangement.
Before I got married, I learned flower arrangements
but I didn't know that the Cockscomb has its face .
Thank you for telling me.

Plants grow in the direction of the sun so we can say
faces easily when they are in the gardens or in the fields.
But when we arrange flowers , they are cut and put on the
table and it is difficult to distinguish faces from backs.
Right?

By the way, I heard that there are no 彼岸花(the eautumnal
quinoctial week flowers) in Hokkaido.
Is it true? Everyday while I am driving to work, I listen to
NHK radio  1 to know about the world and one of today's topics
was 彼岸花. Do you see them in Hakodate?

Hello, ダイエット妄想ママ.

Thank you for your comment.
Speaking of 彼岸花, I've never seen it in Hokkaido.
They are always in bloom in the equinoctial week, aren't they? It was interesting. And fragrant olive, or Osmanthus fragrans (キンモクセイ) also reminds me of fall.
Oh, I miss them!
