Ikebana is the art of Japanese flower arranging. There are a number of different schools of ikebana, each with its own unique requirements. The requirements can involve angling stems in a certain way or choosing specific kinds of arrangements for different types of vases. The flowers used in all the schools are similar. Certain flowers have symbolic meanings in Japanese culture. Combining different flowers gives each ikebana arrangement a symbolic meaning.

Did you enroll for the flower arrangement class?
Hope: I just enrolled in a knitting class for intermediate. Hope I do okay. You know me I’m still all thumbs with the knitting needles.
Dot: So why are you taking the class?
Hope: I’m getting bored with the beginner patterns.
Dot: You know you just might surprise yourself. Keep me posted.
Abby: Hey Hope! Did you enlist in the swimming try outs?
Hope: No I didn’t. When did they post the information?
ABBY: Last week. Not too many showed up, due to the 6 inches of snow.
Hope: Since some of the snow melted I better get my butt over there. Can’t we enlist online?
Abby: That would be the easy way, especially with the snow.
Hope: Guess what I just checked online and no more spots are available. You know what I’m going to come and be the cheerleader for our group.
Abby: The next time when I see something posted I will double check to make sure I read the fine print. It would have saved me a trip to enroll with this goofy weather. Better yet I will have you check online for me.
Have a great day! This is my style.
