Flowers for a Tea occasion

Season: January [2018]
By Grand Master Fuden-an Sojitsu

Fower: Camellia japonica ‘Akebono Tsubaki’, White plum blossoms
Vase: own made, Green bamboo


At the first tea ceremony of every new year, it is customary to use a vase that I found with effort and made myself. Akebono Tsubaki from my garden has a big bud which is suitable for celebrating the new year and it contrasts well with an old mossy tree of white plum blossoms. Green bamboo filled with water creates an impression of freshness.
