I had composed this arrangement of Narcissus (スイセン) and Camellia (ツバキ).

Arranging Narcissus is one of the most difficult works for our school.
First of all, I separated the Narcissus to the four leaves, the flower stem, and the sheath called Hakama in Japanese.
There are always four leaves and a single flower stem in each Narcissus plant.

The sheath is the most important to arrange Narcissus.
I adjusted the lengh of four leaves by rules. I set the leaves through the sheath carefully to not break. I then cut the other side of leaves.

I set the flower stem between two pairs of leaves, but the head of flower must be lower than leaves.
The sheath has a face, so, it must face forward. However, the sheath of lower Narcissus must face toward the higher one.
Moreover, the sheath must be shown on the container, but the bottom line of the sheath must not be shown.

It took a long time to complete the arrangement.
After arranging, my Ikebana teacher gave me a pretty pot kindly.

This is a kind of Orchid, Goodyera, called Syusuran (繻子蘭) in Japanese.
I like it very much.

Its leaves are also pretty. They are like velvet and have pink colored lines.

I had composed this arrangement of Narcissus (スイセン) and Camellia (ツバキ).

Arranging Narcissus is one of the most difficult works to arrange correctly in our school.
First, I separated the Narcissus to the four leaves, the flower stem, and the sheath, which is called the Hakama in Japanese.
There are always four leaves and a single flower stem in each Narcissus plant.

The sheath is the most important portion in the arrangement of Narcissus.
I adjusted the length of the four leaves, as predetermined by, and in accordance with, the rules. I set the leaves through the sheath carefully, so as to not break them. I then cut the other side of the leaves.

I set the flower stem between the two pairs of leaves, carefully ensuring the head of flower was lower than the leaves, as it must be.
The sheath has a face, so, it must face forward. However, the portion of the sheath nearest the Narcissus must face toward the higher portion.
Moreover, the sheath must be seen coming from the container, but the bottom line of the sheath must not be shown.

It took a long time to complete the arrangement.
Upon completion of this arrangement, my Ikebana teacher kindly gave me a pretty pot.

This is a kind of Orchid, the Goodyera, also called the Syusuran (繻子蘭) in Japanese.
I like it very much.

Its leaves are also pretty. They are like velvet, and have pink colored lines.

Re: English Corrections

Hi Shiroi Tora.

Thank you so much for the corrections.

It might be, you misunderstand about the direction of the face. However, it will be difficult for me to explain it. Thanks, anyway.
