Hata Sensei's Class for September

After July and August's break, we were so happy to resume Hata Sensei's class again. On September 18, Our Main Line Sogetsu Study Group started a new Ikebana year with three lessons:
1) Variation #3 Slanting Style Moribana  book 2-3 p.70. Try to challenge yourself and arrange basic lessons from behind. My material: Berry branch, zinnia, Helenium /square ceramic container.
2) Freestyle  Using Fall grasses: Pamper grass, wheat grass, grey blue grass with hydrangea, aster and purple round ball flower (don't know the name)/ Tall bamboo basket. 
3) Miniatures  book 5-15 p.74: Must use five mini containers or more.

I love this haiku very much: "Autumn Grasses"  by Buson  1716-1783. I like to share with you.

Grasses are misty
The water silent
A tranquil evening.  
2) Free Style Using Fall Grasses
