You know some sorts of paper will just sing in your hands, especially when it's spring around :-) Continuing our miniature Oribana project... and here is a miniature version of our Oribana composition called SOLO.
The starring vase is Yuri's design called Solo, hence the name of the composition. The flower design is my Solo-Lily, a special kind of an imaginary bloom :-)
The vase is just 4 cm high, 1-3/4 inches, and the whole arrangement is 4 inches high (10 cm).
Used wonderful hand-made Japanese paper Moriki Kozo for the flowers, classic origami paper for the greens and some silvery designers paper for the vase.
Note for origami enthusiasts: The step-by-step diagrams on how to fold the composition are published in our ORIBANA BEAUTY

Tiger swallowtail - just emerged in the woods - NEW, a photo by Vicki's Nature on Flickr.
I happened upon this newly-emerged Tiger in the woods when I took a side trail to chase another butterfly. Many of our big butterflies come out of our hardwoods - like tulip poplars and wild cherries. Looks like a female - in fact it reminds me a lot of a Canada Tiger.
nice on black - press "L"
for Lacey! ... have a good weekend everyone ...
