Flowers for a Tea occasion
Season: January 
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.
