Three Friends of Winter [right of a pair]

16 year Art in Bloom participant

Floral Products Used: pine, bamboo, Nanking cherry

Inspired by this lovely pine with the gnarled roots overlooking the lively little waterfall and flowing stream, I created a 'Three Friends of Winter' arrangement—pine, bamboo, and plum—symbolizing long life and prosperity.

Floral Arrangement Inspired by...
