Bamboo basket

(1) Recently, I bought this bamboo basket, thought it would be good for a morimono arrangement.

(2) dwarf pomegranate

(3) a cluster of small button mums would be better here.

Large scale arrangement

It's not always easy to do a large scale arrangement. There are so much more space need to be filled. One of my neighbors trimmed their fig tree from their backyard. I picked up a few large branches and did this study.

I cut off small branches from main branches. The first decision to make is to use a tall or a low vase. Moribana is out of the question. The main branches are pretty heavy. I need a large container. After I set the main branches across the top of the container, the only choice I have is to make this arrangement upright. The flowers are left over from my ikebana class. This is a pretty traditional arrangement.

I may try a different arrangement with the same materials tomorrow.
