Flowers of the month (May-June, 2021)

Hi, this is Shire. Thank you very much for coming to my room again!

Here is my flower arrangement in May-June, 2021 at the Shamballa School (imaginary school in Shamballa). In this time I have decided to set one arrangement for May-June. Please use your maximum imagination to enjoy the beautiful flowers!

My arrangement idea has already been realized at the school lobby which you can access, take a look at whenever you do “imagine” it. Below, the presentation is hopefully a guide for you to enjoy the imaginary yet fun & beautiful arrangement.

May-June 2021 〜Rose, Iris, Hyrangea〜

The design & idea by Shire

I’ve used many different kinds of roses before, but the climbing roses are appeared at the first time since I started the arrangement in 2015. I asked two special large fences with planters to build a kind of “screen” for iris flowers and hydrangeas.

Here is the image (idea) of the placement of arrangement:

You can see the 2 screen-type fences for climbing roses, 2 box-shaped big ceramic planters/flower vases (black) for iris flowers, and 3 oval shaped flower vases for hydrangeas with one small water bowl filled with petals of hydrangea.
Flowers 1: Climbing Roses
花材 1:ツルバラ

Here is some reference images of the fences:

These fences are placed carefully with the flowers with a gardener in Shamballa.

They come with 2 planters at the bottom for the flowers in order to protect the roots of climbing roses.

The color of climbing roses are the combination of dark pink & white which you see the image above.

Flowers 2: Iris
花材 2:アイリス(花菖蒲)

We used 2 different color of irises: dark purple and violet.

These irises are arranged as “Japanese Ikebana” style. There is not much space between flowers so that you can see the beautiful contrast of purple blooming flowers right under the climbing roses.
アイリス(花菖蒲)は 生花スタイルで剣山に挿していますが、隙間なくみっしりと入れていますので、花菖蒲園のような趣もあるかもしれません。ツルバラの直ぐ下が花菖蒲園、という感じです。

Flowers 3: Hydrangea
花材 3:紫陽花

Here is some reference images we did use for the arrangement:

The image above is the flower vases we used for the hydrangeas.

This is a reference image of the water vase surrounded by the hydrangeas. This makes us feel the rainy season in Japan as well as somewhat a mystical spot around the beautiful flowers…. don’t you think so?
こちら紫陽花に囲まれた「水盤」のイメージ画像になります。海外では想像つきにくいのですが、これで日本の紫陽花=梅雨イメージを象徴するのと、水のあるスポット=神秘的な雰囲気を醸し出しています。 いかがでしょうか?
