Relax and Float Downstream

Strelitzia leaf, blue Ornithogalum.

I've never seen blue Ornithogalum before. I found these at a market in South of France, and immediately knew I had to have them. A refreshing colour and an interesting texture - great for use in a mass.

Emphasizing the surface of leaves is an exercise in the Sogetsu School curriculum. In this arrangement the very straight line of a Strelitzia leaf is contrasted by a curving container and a feeling of floating down a stream.
