I just want to follow some basic rules of displaying flowers beautifully. The ikebana approach emphasises individual blooms in containers that enhance the overall look of the arrangement.
It can also be a very frugal way of flower arranging as you only need a few flowers.
If you have a garden just cut a few fabulous flowers rather than filling a whole vase of flowers.
I am looking forward to spring when the pink and white blossom is out. I shall be added some branches of blossom to my arrangement then.

There are some great youtube sites that show the basics of ikebana
I like this one by an ikebana master.
There are also endless books on the subject. If you just want an idea of the impressive ikebana flower displays take a look on Pinterest.
