Last year I became the member of Ikebana International Philadelphia Chapter 71 and this year I have the opportunity to participate in chapter exhibitions at the Japanese House in Farimount Park. I learned a lot from this event.  Ikebana at Shofuso enhances the traditional Japanese values and each arrangement was so pretty embraces truth, goodness and beauty. (8-22-13)
