Homework: Lea






I've attached some photos of the floral arrangements I've done over the holidays. They're not exactly ikebana though..... I've been doing more "normal" floral arrangements for some reason. I need to get back into ikebana! 

I'll see you Thursday night for the first class of 2012.

Cheers,
Lea
