Flowers and Their Vases - at Japanese Friendship Garden Phoenix

One of my favorite pastimes is to visit the Phoenix Art Museum, to stop at the tokonoma (see my blog from 2016 here)  and to snap a photo of the current ikebana flower arrangement. After so many years and visits, my own photo collection developed and I visit it often - on my computer screen - to relax and rejuvenate while working on projects.

 So, you can understand my delight when I visited the 10th Annual Ikebana installation "Flowers and Their Vases" at the Japanese Friendship Garden this week-end. More than 20 artists presented their beautiful and meaningful flower arrangements on the 3.5 acres of the garden. 

Most of the exhibits can be seen on the Japanese Friendship Garden Facebook page and on its web-site - click on the link for a glimpse.

Hi Steffy - I'm also a fan of ikebana, and really like the arrangement you showcase here. I've been to the County Fair in Kauai, HI a few times and visiting the ikebana hall was my favorite. The last day of the fair they would auction off many of the displays, but sadly I could only look on wistfully since they'd never make it home to California.

What beautiful photos, steffy. I never knew this garden existed and will need to make a point to visit it the next time I'm in Phoenix.

William Feela , thanks for stopping by. I agree, very interesting placements and arrangements. If you look at the ase with the waterfall backdro, it seems to me the flowers are like falling waters, resembling the waterfall behind.

Hi Lottie Kendall , that's the fleeting nature of this art. I can imagine what displays Hawaiian exhibitions will have - with all the variety of flowers and fragrances. Thanks for stopping by.

Nina Hollander , I think you will enjoy the Japanese friendship garden in Phoenix. It is in a very central location and easy to get to - so next time you are in Phoenix, here is one more item on the sightseeing list. Thanks for stopping by.

How cool is that, Steffy!  I have always admired the artistry of the Japanese.  They put a little bit of zen and their spirit in things.

Hi Myrl Jeffcoat , you are so right, everything seems so thoughtful in those displays. I was reading a few days ago a book about gift wrapping with fabric - furoshiki. Very fascinating, too.
