April showers bring May flowers indeed! My teacher's email said to use Irises as the main part of today's arrangement. She also asked us to bring extra to share if we had a lot of irises in our garden. Gladly I brought some extra yellow and purple Japanese irises to class.
Irises and water usually relate well together. So I used my favorite Suiban. It is big enough to show water and to hold tall flower stems and leaf arrangements at the edge. I combined these with butterfly maple to add more grace and fullness.(5/18/10)
My classmate Mary's Iris arrangement, so beautiful and graceful!
