Happy Birthday, Blog!

Believe it or not, it's been five years; yes, our first post was November 30, 2009, just before the Flower Lady's birthday. And here it is her birthday again. She hasn't aged a bit, I can tell you, but she has gotten busier than ever. Many more busy, creative years, my beautiful Flower Lady!

Conceptual Cornucopia



For the holiday, the Flower Lady and her class made "conceptual cornucopias," cleverly using palm bark. Happy Thanksgiving!

This Just In

The Flower Lady presented this morning in a marquis venue of afficianados. I thought you would like to see her arrangements. The theme was "Transitioning from Fall to Christmas."

There's been a lot of activity, floral and otherwise, this past summer, so let's just load up the tray and have a spin on the old Carousel:
Test arrangement for the FL's summer Floral Fun class. Note the "ice."
 
 
I like the kangaroo paws sticking out of this parallel arrangement.
 
More paws.
 
How's this for a clever use of materials? A garden gate made with tie-wraps.
 
Summer day, two-lane blacktop, one-lane bridge.
 
Why did the peacock...?
 
Home on the deck.
 
 
Formal arrangement.
 
Experiments and techniques:




 
Good inspiration:
 
Whew! Longest post ever, I think.
