Ikebana 10/30/2013

I arranged Eucalyptus(ユーカリ), Stock flower(ストック) and Gypsophila or Baby's breath(カスミソウ).

As for Eucalyptus, koalas eat them.
I watched that a koala was eating eucalyptus leaves on TV this morning.
I was surprised to watch that the leaves were pointy like bamboo's. When I use eucalyptus for flower arranging, I always see its leaves are round.
I checked it on the Internet, and I learned there are so many kinds of eucalyptus.
It says that the leaves are used for medicine or sometimes even tea!

By the way, isn't the vase unique, is it?
When I arrange flowers usually, at first I imagine how I arrange with looking the flowers and then I choose one vase out of some.
However I chose this unique vase first this time.
My teacher taught me that you always didn't have to put flowers in all of mouths. The vase had three mouths, so I didn't use one of them.
Since I wanted to show the vase on photo as well, I took it from lower angle than usual.

That vase is very interesting. It looks like an old musical instrument.
I use eucalyptus in the bath as an essential oil when I have a cold. The scent is very strong.

Hi, Always visiting.

Thank you for your comment.
Oh, yes! That looks like an instrument. I should have whistled it before arranging.
I didn't know the eucalyptus essential oil. I want to try it.
