Happy Thanksgiving!

Happy Thanksgiving! We went straight through from the Fourth of July to Thanksgiving without a blog post! I may have been slacking off, but the Flower Lady has been busier than ever. Recently, she did a big demo in a fancy venue:

Some arrangements from the big show (while under construction, to be finished onstage):

Enjoy your turkey or soy alternative! Next time: stuff from the last six months!

The Catbirds Are Back!

The catbirds are back, and singing sweetly in the yews. Don't be enchanted by their melodies. If robins are your loud and excitable neighbors, and blue jays a motorcycle gang blowing through town, and crows the dark overlords of mischief, then catbirds are con men and thieves. They sing sweetly, then steal your blueberries. They're eyeing my bushes already, licking their beaks and planning their raids. I know what they're up to.

Who, me?

Nice picture from my brother-in-law in Ohio. Smile, it's Spring!

Now, there's a sight to cheer a man's heart after a long winter! My sister, who lives in Florida, asked me just two weeks ago whether we processed outside for Palm Sunday. Of course not, I told her, it was 22 degrees out! And now this-- everything seems to be blooming all at once, beautifully.

To Spring and New Life-- Happy Easter!

That was one...COLD...February. And March has been no great shakes, either. No spring peepers, no daffodils, just a yard full of snowbirds. Never fear, the Flower Lady is working away, bringing you creations like these:

Black-and-white, by special request.

A Dozen Roses

"A dozen roses with twist," says The Flower Lady. Roses pa-vayed in sand in a heart-shaped container. 

Happy Valentine's Week!

The Wrath of Juno

We were expecting a foot or two of snow, and this is what we got. I'm not going to be too hard on those weather guys--I've made a mistake or two in my lifetime--but I think from now on if I want to scare the heck out of myself I'll watch one of those Chainsaw movies instead of The Weather Channel.

Bulb + sunny window = miracle!
