Those warm summer days are fast approaching! Winter lingered a little too long this spring and now the garden is in full spring mode- tulips and daffodils popping open everyday! Each morning I walk to garden with Georgia to see what's newly blooming and pushing up through the dirt and everyday I get really excited for the season ahead.
Last June I started to get into the weekly ritual of doing a design a week after watching an Instagram story from Katie Davis of Ponderosa and Thyme. I wanted to study the seasonal aspect of floral design in more depth, get to know the flowers in my own garden and from local growers more. It turned into a time to try to different shapes, techniques and flower combinations I ordinarily wouldn't use.
I'm certainly no professional photographer but I think documenting personal growth is so so important when you are designing with a perishable product. Looking back it's fun to see growth. I suppose this blog is as much for me to document my garden journey and design growth as it is to encourage you to garden and bring nature indoors to enjoy.
