My parents house was a traditional home that had the typical Japanese garden in the back with various different trees, plants and many seasonal flowers. I grew up playing around our Japanese black pine, Japanese plum, loquat (Eriobotrya japonica) and pomegranate trees, all the while enjoying the azaleas, camellias and many other flowers that my father nurtured with so much love and dedication. I also remember that we had flowers that were originally introduced in Japan from foreign countries, such as Amaryllis (Belladonna Lily), roses, daisies, and dahlias. So while our garden was very Japanese in style, I can now see how it was more like a display of universal nature.
Making the Wedding Bouquet _ Regardless of who you are in relation to the bride, you may be overwhelmed by the task of assembling her wedding bouquet. However, using silk flowers can make your job much easier. Most silk flowers are incredibly realistic and should look beautiful at the wedding. The most frequently used flower in a wedding bouquet, real or silk, is the rose. Some of the simplest bouquets are the prettiest; your bride may be enchanted by a spherical bouquet of multicolored roses garnished with greenery. If you are looking for something less traditional, you can change the species of flowers, use a few topiary elements, or change the overall design of the bouquet. The bride, of course, should be presented with a bouquet that she will adore. Since you are using silk and not real flowers, you can prepare the bouquet long before the wedding day and ensure that it is exactly what the bride wants.
