What’s in bloom now: Spring seasonal floral design

May 4th, 2014

Yesterday, I hosted a hugely inspiring gathering of floral designers

We celebrated spring with a hands-on workshop to explore color, texture, form and scale

Below is the result of our creative expression

    Debra, thanks for the wisdom, beauty and humor. The time (too brief) at lovely 95 Yesler was just what I needed to nuture my creativity this Spring. It was good to learn about the seasonal, American-grown flower movement. And to think about the power of flowers to help us live in the moment. To heal, even. These ideas go well with a book I’m reading by West Seattle author Lyanda Lynn Haupt, “The Urban Bestiary.” It’s all about restoring nature in our everyday, urban lives. She writes about animals but it could easily apply to flowers and other greenery. Anyhow, I thought of the book several times as you were teaching.
    Fun day. Good crowd. Thanks again!
