Ellie Welkamp chose 'mandarins' as her subject and created this ikebana with them submerged in a glass vase to which she added two colour matched lilies.
Nola Bird arranged rose hips in a mass with some leaves and buds from the same bush.
Christine Denmead used banksia with new flowers and old seed cones still on the branch in a vessel by Graeme Wilkie.
Helen Quarrell made a moribana arrangement using artichokes with some purple flowering sage.
I have created an ikebana with a seasonally early flower of agapanthus, a bud and some of last years dried flower heads.
