So, I began to study Ikebana this year from a local Japanese woman. She is teaching me Ikenobo which is the older school. It is a bit hard since I am learning Japanese flower names and English Flower names. Some of them go unidentified. But I am just gonna post along what I've done and what I've learned.

This is the first arrangement ^. She was teaching me the idea of lines straight up. Right now for beginners she suggests "Jiyuu" which is free thought. That way I can get the ideas of what Ikebana is and what you focus on first. I will post a second post after this with the names of the flowers in Japanese if anyone is interested.

This was my second arrangement. This time we were going over "Naname" which is diagonal lines. Or slanted arrangement.

Beautiful, Ashley. Smiling I tip my hat to you.
It’s okay to not know all the answers.

Lovely arrangements. Give us more. With a name like Ashley doubt if you were born in Japan. What took you there?
