Connected with flowers 花で繋がる


She moved out of Hiroshima last year and recently moved back. She happily came back to the class, where everybody welcomes her. They all are good friends. I am so happy to see flowers make them closer. Welcome back, K-san!!

Ms. F will leave back to the US in the near future, and visited us to say hello. She has been holding a bible class, which I wanted to visit and have not. We will miss her...

Little and often fills the purse 継続は力

He started ikebana only last September, but he practices every week without absence. There is not dramatic change to eyes in everyday practice in ikebana. But when you look back, you will realize you have improved and gained the sense of seeing the Japanese Art. Gaining skills of Japanese art is what it's all about. Recently he arranges vase arrangements, which there is not much to put my hand in. I am very glad and proud of him.

The main material this day was Cherry branch with fruits. They turned red on the following week in an arrangement at home, which were so adorable.

Bright Future 明るい未来

The season for making Rabbit-ear Iris Summer arrangements has come. We can feel comfortable energy on the buds to grow taller and flower beautifully under the sunhine. I always think of the bright future with this plant.

Miss H. visited Boston during the holidys of Golden Week last week. She brought back some gifts to each of us, and a notebook from the Harvard University to T-kun, a high school student. T-kun goes to a prestigious high school from which many graduates go to excellent universities. He was so happy like he had been permitted to go to the Harvard, so was I! His future will be bright!  What a thoughtful gift for him! Thank you H-chan.
ミスHさんは、ゴールデンウィークにボストンに行かれました。私たちそれぞれにお土産を下さり、高校生のT君にはハーバード大学のノートでした。T君は、有名大学に進学する卒業生が多いことで知られる私立高校に通っています。ノートを抱えて、もう、ハーバード大に入学許可されたように嬉しそうでしたし、私も同様でした。明るい未来を感じさせてくれる、何て配慮のあるお土産でしょう!  Hちゃん、ありがとう!

Flowers from own garden 庭からの花々

All plants in this arrangement are from her garden. Her mother grows many flowers for her, and she brings various flowers with her every week. What a nice family they are!
この作品の花材はすべて庭からです。 お母さまがたくさんの花を育てていらして、毎週、いろいろな花を持って稽古にみえます。なんて素敵なご家族なのでしょう。

Guests from Ukuraina ウクライナからのゲスト

We were happy to have gusets from Ukuraina. They were warm and beautiful people, I was impressed very much.

She loves flowers and makes flower arrangements in Western style. No wonder that she made an ikebana arrangement beautifully.

She wanted to bring a flower arrangement to her friend in hospital. An arrangement with bright flowers is suitable for a visit to the hospital, and she picked colorful flowers. The arrangement she made must have cheered up her ill friend, I bet.

A guest from Boise, Idaho アイダホ州ボイシーからのゲスト

We had a guest from Boise who visited her friend living in Hiroshima. She showed wonderful smile to everybody in the class despite her late arrival on the previous evening. She must have exhausted then. Wonderful people have wonderful friends, I thought.

kimono 着物姿

A charming lady started taking my class. She was on the way back from her friend's wedding party. We were happy to see the beautiful lady in a gorgeous kimono.
