July : Arrangement for the month – Lotus

Arranged by Hiroko Suzuki

The lotus is the finest flower in paradise.
It is decorated for the Bon Festival.
It would be nice to arrange the leaves together with the flowers, but the lotus leaves
are not good at drawing up water, so here only the flowers are used.
Instead, Basho leaves are arranged beneath to create a summery atmosphere.
The reunion with the soul frees us from all distractions.

Components of the arrangement: Lotus, Basho( Japanese banana) leaves
Vessel: “SEN” by NAKADA Masaru
