The Season Begins


 March begins the journey of Spring Weddings... .This one we just finished.. and It was such a joy..and so 
 Sweet... working with my dear friend and daughter through the whole preparation was such fun....
 The Colors were gorgeous...but I must confess it was really hard to pick flowers to match the beautiful Salmon color of the bridesmaids... finding the right rose and combining two peach colors was really scary 
 Deciding how to design and where to put things was not easy...but fell into place as we sought God's hand 
 all the way... we always begin with prayer... This is God's glory to create... He has given us the joy of 
 handling His creations... we need His help... ..I loved working with David Austin roses...this one was Juliet
 like picking a rose from the garden... it handles so well... and Parrot tulips...just amazing.. I learn so much 
 from each wedding project.. and I look forward to the next... I hear it will be in shades of purple... 
  ....I am truly Blessed to be able to participate in creating beauty for such a special occasion...

We need a little Spring in our Steps

 This Winter is dragging on and on... and we are all so desperate to get outside and clean up the debris it
has left us... everything brown and dead looking, branches everywhere.... but today it went up to 70!!!! 
 We were like ants rushing out of a burning log.... and we grabbed our rakes..and brooms and began to uncover Spring... yup.. it's there and coming in strong.... It was wonderful to sink in the mud and clip dead wood and peek down under the leaves and see the green stuff coming... lovely
 The birds were singing away...and chasing each other... we even discovered a new one in the neighborhood, we had not seen all winter...Brown Creeper... adorable bird... will have to paint him sometime... 
 Yes.. we did find daffies coming up...and we all gathered around it and just admired it as if we found a pot of gold... it was a great day... but... tomorrow they say snow... ha... it just can't last... too much happening out there to keep Spring from coming... it will just be a teaser...and won't last... 
 I have a wedding to do for Sat... so will be busy with gorgeous Spring flowers for 3 days... will post pictures next week... until then... enjoy the anticipation of Spring... it is always  a spectacular event... never get tired of it...
