My Personal Journey to the Way of the Flower _ I am a native of Shikoku, the smallest and less populated of the four main islands that comprise the Japanese archipelago. I was born and raised in what was then known as Iyomishima, a small town located between a backdrop of beautiful mountains and the Seto Inland Sea, the waters that separate Shikoku from Honshu, the main island of Japan. Without a doubt, the rich natural settings that I enjoyed at my birthplace throughout my childhood and youth, had a profound effect in how my sensitivities for nature and art developed over time, and to this date.
The flower designs made by sticking to a recipe, formula or following a picture are not the most imaginative and certainly are not original. These types of flower designs are expected from floral shops that satisfy orders for FTD, Teleflora, 1𗘸Flowers, and other flower wire companies. This is because customers order a floral design based upon a photo or image and request the exact same thing. It is likened to a franchise where you order from a menu and that's what you get, no matter which franchise you visit.
