January : Arrangement for the month-Moss Branch

Arranged by: Hiroko Suzuki

Moss and pine trees are both used in festive flower arrangements for the New Year.
Moss used here is not the green that grows on the ground,
but a moss-covered branch of the Japanese apricot tree called Umenoki-goke.
Combined with the evergreen of the pine trees,
the brighter and darker color effect creates a powerful arrangement.
Intending no flower addition, here is a New Year’s arrangement.

Materials arranged:  Moss Branch, Pine
