Ikebana 3/25/2015

IMG_7608_convert_20150327140402.jpg

I had composed this arrangement of Corkscrew Willow (雲竜柳), Iris (アイリス), and Camellia (ツバキ).

I often used to see camellias in my hometown, but I hardly see them in Hokkaido.
However, they have been familiar in Japan for a long time. As they have green leaves and bloom even in the shade in winter, they have been often used for tea ceremonies especially in winter.
On the other hand, the whole flower falls down easily, so, it is imaged that a head of human falls down. Especially Samurai warriors would dislike them. And even nowadays, you shouldn't take them to visit someone in a hospital.
Also, it is said that this camellia oil is called Japanese olieve oil.

On the other hand, the whole flower falls intact, so, *it often conjures an image of a falling human head in many people's minds. Samurai warriors especially disliked them. And even nowadays, you shouldn't take them to anyone staying in a hospital.
Also, it is said that Camellia oil is the Japanese olive oil.

*I am not sure if this is what you had wanted to say.

Re: English Corrections

Hi, Shiroi Tora.

Thank you very much for the corrections as always.
Yes, that was what I had wanted to say.
The Camellia oil is good for hair, so I will buy its shampoo before long.
