Bringing joy into a dull day with Ikebana

At this time of year it’s easy to let the dull dark days get on top of you, but there is beauty and joy around you if you look for it.

I decided to see what was available in the garden to make an ikebana arrangement to brighten my day. No shop bought flowers in these arrangements.

    I really love your little planters, and had a go at them myself. I had one slump in the middle, gues i need to let dry more before putting together. Yours look so Professional and neat. ( mine look a bit wobbly 😉
