Iris and Basket 'Arrangement

I found this old bamboo fishing basket at the famous Golden Nugget Antique flea market in Lambertville, New Jersey, near New Hope. The basket is an important container for Ikebana use. Particularly for warm weather and informal arrangements.
I've always wanted to have a basket like that, and am so happy to own one. Now, only the purple red Japanese Irises remain blooming in my garden. This is my last Iris arrangement for the early Summer.
Material: Iris, Evening Primrose, Zebra grass
and Spider wort (widow's tears)
