I have noticed that western style gardens _ such as those seen in big castles, for example _ characterize themselves by man_made forms that generally follow symmetric patterns. In contrast, Japanese gardens, while also man_made, always try to recreate lifelike landscapes, by using not only botanical elements but also water, gravel, rocks and other natural components. In a similar manner, when compared to western floral arrangements, Ikebana compositions also have a stronger emphasis in reproducing natural settings.
Seasonal flowers can be used to create a more exotic bouquet. During the winter months be sure to include flowers such as the iris, gladioli, strelitzia, hyacinth, anemones, calendula or daffodils. In the spring season the colourful lily, daisy, orchid, narcissus, poppy, sweet pea or tulip will brighten up your bouquet. Brighten somebody's day with a flower arrangement delivered to their doorstep. Your thoughtfulness and sentiments will be felt when you have a beautiful bouquet or arrangement created especially for them.
