Passion Flowers are unique in their beauty and fragrance. Legend has it that a Jesuit Priest in Peru came across the vines of Passion Flowers and was immediately smitten with them . . . that night he had a dream in which the parts of the flower were explained to him as symbols of Christ's crucifixion -- the nails, the crown of thorns, etc.
Today Christians worldwide celebrate Good Friday and Best Buds' has selected the Passion Flower as our Flower of the Week!
A Day in the Life of A Dreamer

- I have always been a 'dreamer' and I think that is the most important quality a person can have in order to be creative. It allows me to view things from all sorts of angles. Whenever I would design for a wedding/special event I made myself 'think like a photographer' and in my mind's eye I wanted to be able to showcase various colors, elements & textures. At the end of 2012 I closed the doors to my Floral Studio and began pursuing new horizons. Flowers and plants have been a part of my life since I was a child and helped my Dad in the garden. Seeds have always fascinated me and one day I will share my 'Lesson Of the Bean' story with you! My other passion is creating beautiful food to share with family and friends -- I have always said that food and flowers go together. For now, I would like this Blog to be a collection of Pretty things that this Dreamer would like to share with all of you!
