August: Flower of the month – Golden-rayed Lily

Arranged by Hiroko Suzuki

Among the popular lilies, I have chosen golden-rayed lily, a species with wild and rural touch, for the arrangement this month.
Look out in the thicket in the summer, where the lily buds about to open bring about freshness in the ambience.
As the bud unfolds itself, rearrange for a better balance.
Keep daily the vessel clean, cut off the tip of the stem, and enjoy its various expressions of the beauty in the unfolding process.
Materials arranged: Golden-rayed Lily, Passion Flower
Vessel: “Rokusho-Saikan” by UCHIDA Koichi
