August:Arrangement for the month – Peony Fruit

Mountain peony drastically changes from its pretty flowers to a poisonous appearance
once its fruits burst open.
Nature always changes and defies our expectations.
We often need to take it in our stride.
Even the bugs eaten leaves should we be generous enough to appreciate them.

Materials arranged: Peony Fruit, Smartweed, Stemona Japonica
Flower vase: “Hanamuguri(flower beetle)” by INOUE Masako
