Free style ikebana

Today in ikebana class we made free style designs.  I used sago palm - one of my least favorite types of greenery.  It is thorny and stiff and just not my cup of tea.  But it has a bit of flexibility so I took the "leaves" off of one side, bent it into an oval and wired it together.  I made two of these and tried two different looks in a cream boat shaped container.  One with orange gerbers and solomon seal leaves, the second with scabiosa pods and the same leaves.
