[Our Noh no Ikebana] “We express early spring through colors,” says Etsuko Wada, 56, from Tsuwano Town, Shimane Prefecture

“Look! I found the spring!”

“Look! I found the spring!”

“The good thing about Noh no Ikebana is that we can enjoy it with free ideas. It’s not just fun. It gives me new insights as I work together with friends. We show vegetables and flowers and ask each other questions, like when I should plant them or how we can cook them. I learn from others about vegetables I don’t grow or cook at home.

The theme of this arrangement is “Look; I found the spring!” The materials are vegetables and flowers in early spring.

Field mustard, Chinese citrons, and mimosa in spring colors are doing a great job. We used the roots of vegetables and branches of flowers to make the arrangement dynamic.”

<Container and tools> An ittomasu (old measurement container, a bucket, a bamboo basket, measuring boxes, etc.

<Materials> Butterbur sprouts, broccoli, field mustard, yacon, a cabbage, a Chinese cabbage, and Chinese citrons, etc.
