Shoka Shofutai arranged by Nohra.
The last ice storm did a number on one of our old cherries - the top was split vertically, and almost a quarter of the tree was gone. That was hard to take, but nothing could be done, - we removed the whole top. Not only our tree suffered - Ursula's big black Japanese pine lost 3/4 of its mass. It happened all over the area. While driving, a lot of broken and hanging limbs could be seen along the roads.
I forced a lot of my sakura branches, and we use them freely.
Here is an Isshu-ike Shoka Shofutai arranged by Nohra. This Shoka is an advanced one - it has Nagashi Shin. The main branch is flowing. Splendid! According to Ikenobo the only way one can arrange cherry classically is with pine or - in Isshu-ike style.
