Slow Spring Combo

Variation no 8. Nageire reversed basic slanting and Nageire no 4 upright.
Branches and roses.

Spring has been extremely slow this year. The good thing about that is that we've had a long period with buds and small leaves on the trees. Buds and spring leaves holds a lot of promise and hope in them - even when we have to wait for the fulfilling.

With small leaves the lines of the branches are emphasized, and it's easy to get an airy feeling with lots of space in-between the branches. Put in a poetic way and in the words of Hiroshi Teshigahara, 3rd. iemto of the Sogetsu school: There should be plenty of space for butterflies to fly through your arrangement.
