Welcoming Spring 2015

Happy spring friends! Apologies for my prolonged silence, but I have been super busy these past few weeks with events, workshops, and pretty much a busy life of being a mother of three (with spring sports having begun). I have to admit, things are crazy (in a good way) this year and I find myself struggling to keep it all balanced. I have gathered some of my favorite images from the past few weeks to share with you. Spring is here indeed - as evidenced in these arrangements.

Early Autumn Highlights

Here are some highlights of what early autumn has looked like so far for me. Due to a very warm September, my garden still thinks it is summer, so I have been enjoying my roses quite a lot. Everything in this arrangement is from my garden.

Flowers: honeysuckle, lemon, garden rose, tea rose, jasmine, iresine Kiana Underwood / tulipina.com | Photography: Nathan Underwood / nruphoto.com

I was pleasantly surprised to find peonies at the market this month - with all sorts of beautiful peonies coming from Chile. So, of course I took the opportunity to create an arrangement around this rich color pallete pairing tree peonies with these awesome carnations! The fuchsia is a touch from my own garden.

Flowers: peony, carnation, rose, ranunculus, silene, zinnia, privet, sumac, astilbe Kiana Underwood / tulipina.com | Photography: Nathan Underwood / nruphoto.com
