#ikebana is a traditional Japanese art form of flower arranging. part-spiritual offering, part-living art, the practice has evolved over the past 1500 years — now, it’s sort of a meditation, much like #teaceremony .
no need to be a flower aficionado in order to try ikebana at home; there are no set rules, but usually arrangements are angular in shape and design, and use seasonal blooms. swoop 3 different types of fauna at the farmers market (each represents earth, heaven, and man) and start experimenting. via @amber.breitenberg - 3 hours ago
