Hello...First of all...Thank You for your time, patience and sharing your expertise with each of us learning Ikebana.  I truly have enjoyed the lessons and exercises.  You both are a pleasure to learn from.  Thank You for this opportunity!

Here is my revised "color" arrangement.  I added a third leaf to create greater contrast, moved the purple hyacinth to the left of the daffodils, moved the pussy willow branches to create a greater space between the two main lines.  I also added a daffodil to the back for depth of color.  Hope this is to your liking!

The feedback to use a taller container – The only thing I could find was this white vase, then the dark leaves really did look wrong.


Parrot Tulips, Chives, Chrysanthemum leaves.
