Flower Arrangement "Ikebana" Exhibition and Birds ;

In the middle of this month, my husband's ex-lady collage who is a member of "Ohara School of Ikebana" told us about the Exhibition.  Each work has the beautiful personal sense of Arranging and has the kind of different style from the another schools' I've been to many times. Only some of the works here; wish you'll enjoy them with me♪

It sure was hard to choose the works to introduce here ;-)

 My regular Japanese White-eye found at the nearby park Looking at me? p;-)  

And little luck that Bull-headed shrike perching the tree in front of my house ♪
sandpiper was all alone walking along the river bank.
Thank you very much for your sweet visits and heartwarming comments this year; 
I really appreciate your kindness and thoughtfulness; 
Have a wonderful year end and my next post here is year 2019 ;


  1. Gorgeous flower arrangements! It’s really hard to pick a favorite. They are all so beautiful and elegant!
    It does seem like the Japanese White-eye is looking at you. Maybe he/she is familiar with you :-) :-)
    Very Merry Christmas to you, Miyako san. Thank you for your friendship through blogging again this year. Wishing you and your family a very happy and healthy new year!

  2. Miyako - I enjoy creating flower arrangements, so this post is very interesting to me for new ideas. I am most fascinated by the variety of containers that have been used (baby shoes?) and the notion of using several vases gathered together for one arrangement. Thank for adding this inspiration to Mosaic Monday this week! Merry Christmas!

  3. The floral arrangements are elegant and creative. Such preciseness, too. Thanks for sharing photos of them. Merry Christmas. :-)

  4. You always frame your photos so beautifully! Merry Christmas dear friend! Holiday hugs, Diane

  5. "Florence" has kindly left me a comment but her mail but somehow didn't get reflected here. Let me paste her mail for her;

    I am in awe of such exquisite calligraphy. What skill and talent.
    I love the colorful photos of the birds.
    I hope you have a wonderful New Year filled with the beauty of Nature.

    Thank you very much, Florence. Miyako*
