“Think left and think right
think low and think high.
Oh, the thinks you can think up
if only you try!”
Quote by Dr Seuss
Temporarily adhere a traditional Ikebana Kenzan or pincushion to a shallow container.
How to place various sizes of plant material in a Kenzan
How to keep Lilies in bud for longer. Removing the pollen. Stringing a Lily Garland.
A wire in the hollow cavity inside a shoot of equisetum makes it easy to manipulate into a heart
Loop a grass veil over a lily stem to create a minimalist summer design.
Cut stems of Gladiolus to place in a radiating summer design.
An all out effective way of keeping a flower stem in the exact spot you want it to be in a clear water vase design.
A minimal... but then with a tiny bug detail... design that is perfect for warm summer designing.
It's the little sun-washed coloured hints that makes you look again to see if you really saw what you thought you saw... yes! There really are signs of autumn everywhere!

It's not really what we call things that matter but what they are made of- in this design, it's made of all three types of Oasis and wool.
A veil of green wool, Spanish moss and dried hydrangeas hang over white lilies
Three Lilies plaited to create a sensational, singular flower "growing" out of a Equisetum dome filled with Rainbow Oasis pebbles.
