Ikebana is a type of floral arrangement popular in Japan since the 8th century. It was imported from China along with Buddhism. It usually consists of one main stem with 2 shorter stems.

I like Ikebana. It evokes a sense of peace and serenity.

Here are examples.

    These are cool. As a single man I’m not big into floral arrangements, but I’d enjoy having one of these in my home. Thanks for sharing, Gigi.

    Several friends have been encouraging me to join their ikebana group and I’m thinking about it. It’s so elegant.

    Very beautiful! I still cherish the paper-umbrella my Father brought home from Japan in the 1970´s

    It is lovely – though more formal than any arrangement I ever do.

    I like Ikebana too. There was always a display of this art form at the NW Flower And garden Show each February. Sadly, I will miss the show this year.
    I love that first one with the camelias.


    Simple elegance – thanks for sharing these lovely examples of Ikebana. 🙂
