The simple but exquisite beauty of this chrysanthemum, ‘Kiyomi No Meisui’, is the ideal candidate to provide the focus for a meditation and summon up a sense of peace and relaxation.
Positioned in a black glass ikebana dish, held in place by biodegradable foam under a layer of glass pebbles and covered in moss plucked from a wall in the garden, the chrysanthemums need no further embellishment or explanation; neither does today’s prop, a teeny-tiny Zen garden.
Following IAVOM’s anniversary, winner of the prize draw, Kris P, has declined the prize which has therefore been redrawn and won by Anna of Green Tapestry. Well done Anna, your book will be in the post today!
No prizes today, but as always it would be lovely if you could find something from your garden or foraged nearby and share it with us on Iavom by leaving the usual links.
