Late summer flowers are now in abundance. A good indicator that the summer heat starts to cool down. From the bright yellows, the color hues are now towards warm hues.

After a month of hiatus from our regular Ikebana sessions, we had our lesson again last Tuesday. It was great to see my sensei and fellow students at Seishincho Community Center.  For this week, we had a combination of dark yellows and pinks combined with some green stems.

 

Late Summer Flowers: From Bright to Warm Hues 

 

This week's arrangement for Tuesday Ikebana highlights late summer flowers and water as main elements of my composition. It is my interpretation of the transition from the hot summer to early autumn.
