Summer Preserved Flower Exhibition by Juillet” etc;

First of all, so sorry about my shrunken background;
Preserved Flower Exhibition by Juillet
I was happy to be able to enjoy these beautiful preserved flower with varieties of themes.  First picture is the works at the entrance behind the show-window. The biggest work in the center was arranged by the teacher "Mikako Takashige" at the "Juillet".
 "Mikako Takashige" arranged two works above and right-side work below as well. 
The pottery used for the big work at the entrance is called 'Hagi-pottery'.
 Hagi city '萩市' in my prefecture.
*Works with Japanese atmosphere*
"Overflowing Feelings"  work for the departed one.
Right side work "仏花" is for a butsudan (household Buddhist altar)
Usually arranged with a pair;
*Summer Arrangement*

Title of  the work below is "Summer Sea"



Skylark  on the fence

On 4th, I found this Sky lark on the fence near the rice paddy.
He or she must have noticed me and cast sweet glances ♪
Another problem I had with blogger or else <(v_v)>
My blog's background suddenly got shrunk. I tackled to fix it but it seems no way I can do repair.  Just hoping to be able to have the normal size back soon.  
Funny that preview and other link pages are OK...

Dearest Miyako,
Don't know if your Preserved Flower Exhibition is about fresh, natural flowers that got preserved or just an exhibit where fresh flowers are used in beautiful arrangements.
Love this presentation very much and of course, Japanese have been always very artful in presenting flowers, twigs and leaves.
Your Skylark photos are cute as well. Those big eyes...
Sending you hugs,
Mariette

Beautiful exhibition! I love preserved flowers. They make a very lovely flower gift which lasts and remain blossoming. I don't think I've seen such large preserved flower arrangements. They look amazing! My favorites are Wafu Bouquet and Summer Sea :-) Also, Overflowing Feelings is very sweet and special arranged for the departed.
Cute Skylark may have enjoyed modeling for you :-) So sorry you have a new bloggie issue. I do see the background shrunken. It doesn't look bad at all, but I sure hope you can get normal view back.
Have a lovely new week, Miyako san! xo

Each floral arrangement (and each of your photographs) is a work of art. So beautiful, so elegant. ...not one flower that isnt perfectly placed to create the theme. And I think you are secretly charming your birds ;>))) ....because they all seem so happy to see and pose for you. Visiting here is a joy!

Good afternoon Miyako from a cool New York. The flowers are just amazing and I can only imagine the time it took to make them. There is a peaceful reflective quality to them....Thank you for sharing nature with us...Michelle

It's amazing how the flowers can look so fresh! Gorgeous arrangements. I think Japanese flower arranging is the best. Thank you for sharing.

Hello Miyako, the flowers and arrangements are all gorgeous. What a lovely exhibit. The Skylark is a cute bird, wonderful captures. I have not seen any problems with my blog. I hope you have solved the mystery. Thank you for linking up and sharing your post. Happy Saturday, enjoy your weekend!

Breathtaking said...

Hello Miyako!:) All the exhibits are beautifully arranged. Flower arranging whether it is done with fresh flowers or dried, is an art form that requires skill, and sensitivity. This is what I see in these beautiful exhibits, and the way you share them is also creative and lovely. Thank you for also sharing the Skylark, which posed so nicely for you.:) Best wishes, and I hope your computer problems will soon be over.
