Flower Dream Strikes Again
Okay, it’s spring in Tokyo, so grit your teeth and strap on your martyr beanie, because it’s time to endure a higher than usual number of flower posts for a while!
Today’s is some of the wild and weird stuff I saw last weekend at Flower Dream 2015, the floral design show that’s more likely to feature bark and rusty sheet metal than roses.
For example: these. O_O
And, uh, yeah, THIS.
Of course, flowers did feature in a few things, like this not-yer-average bunch of posies.
The hot trend this year seemed to be encrusting things with pussy willow buds, go figure.
And bark. Did I mention bark?
And roots. This is a stalk of bamboo, with its roots still attached.
It being Japan, minimalism is always a thing.
And of course there were a few entries that were just achingly beautiful.
If you’re in Tokyo and want to go to the next Flower Dream, info and dates are posted on their website.
