Master instructor shows art of flower arranging - Budapest TimesTuesday, March 19, 2019
Putting together her love of flower arranging and her fluency in English, she began to make her way to an outstanding career.
She found an opening to teach non-Japanese students at the famed Goto florist shop in the Tokyo district of Roppongi. She began her own class there. Until then, her only experience was in assisting. "I had no idea how to ask people to come to my class," she says. However, the place was right, the time was right, and she was doing what interested her and associating with the congenial people she sought.
A dozen years later the Japan Foundation chose her to go on a lecture-demonstration tour of six South American countries and three Asian countries.
From her present pinnacle, Ms Fukushima says she was not sufficiently well prepared then to give demonstrations with different materials in unfamiliar surroundings. Japanese Embassy ladies who were detailed at the time to look after her were, however, full of praise. She learned the characteristics of different flowers, appreciated their exoticism, and accorded them respect and dignity. She believes that each individual flower, like each individual flower arranger, has personality that should shine through.
Ikebana arrangementsShe was sent overseas again by the Japan Foundation. On a separate tour she accompanied the charismatic Hiroshi Teshigahara, who succeeded his father as president of the Sogetsu school. Although making annual overseas trips became her routine, there was nothing routine in the conduct of each one. "Every time I was received very differently. Some audiences had some basic understanding of ikebana. Some had never seen it."Ms Fukushima rose to every occasion, dealing with the unexpected, and joining in with anything going on. She learned to dance the flamenco. She liked to sing jazz. She practised her Spanish and Italian. With Arab ladies, she dressed from top to toe in black robes. She was responsible for a flower show at Westminster Cathedral, London. Overall she sharpened her individuality, freely using other materials as accessories to flowers, and carefully choosing containers.
She gave a solo exhibition of iron containers. She has designed her own glass receptacles. She has become known as an artist who designs stainless and titanium flower vases, finding imaginative effects in her materials’ unique properties.
Some of her arrangements have been huge, built in public places and outdoors. Some have graced the displays in department store windows. She says she is "charmed by cloth, handmade Japanese paper and thread," and incorporates them, as descendants of organic materials, in her arrangements. They have inner spirits, she says, but "plant material is the first for the arranger to think of."Once she taught an ikebana class of blind women. Their adjustments to life impressed her, and from them she learned a new vision for herself. "To touch with the eye, to taste with the eye, to sense fragrance with the eye, to catch sound with the eye — such an expression is the goal of my ikebana."https://www.facebook.com/koka.fukushima https://www.hu.emb-japan.go.jp... https://www.budapesttimes.hu/2019/02/19/master-instructor-shows-art-flower-arranging

This pretty flower is a weed; Get rid of it fast! - INFORUMTuesday, March 19, 2019
Minnesota. The basic problem is that the Endless Summer group of hydrangeas, including Bloomstruck, are members of the Hydrangea macrophylla species, which is the species of the non-adapted florist hydrangeas. The two hydrangea species that are best-adapted for our outdoor landscapes are Hydrangea paniculata and Hydrangea arborescens and their cultivars. Checking the fine print on hydrangea labels for the species saves much heartache. Because Bloomstruck is a Hydrangea macrophylla variety, it has a disadvantage in our region from the onset because of its genetics. Bloomstruck is fairly new, so time will tell, but it would be surprising if it performs better than its genetics allow. Q: Is it okay to prune the top of our arborvitae so that it doesn't grow too tall? Its width is fine, but the top is at about 8 feet and we'd like it to stay at that height. - Nancy Suttle, West Fargo. A: Yes, the tops of pyramidal arborvitae can be trimmed so they don't become too tall. If an arborvitae is allowed to grow out of bounds, it's difficult to radically reduce its height back down to desired size. Your idea of maintaining it at 8 feet from the start is much better than someday trying to cut a tall arborvitae back down to that level. Keeping a shrub or tree at its present size through pruning is often called "mold and hold" pruning. Several times during the growing season, prune off the current season's new growth so the arborvitae remains at the desired height. Some pyramidal arborvitae varieties' natural heights are 30 feet, so diligence may be needed to maintain at 8 feet. To hold an arborvitae at its present size, it's probably necessary to trim once in June or July and again in August. A quick trim across the top a couple times each summer should do it.
