'Flowers are love's truest language' . . . Park Benjamin
I began this Blog to share beautiful photos, inspirational thoughts and maybe a tidbit or two that you will want to pass onto to someone else. No one does 'pretty' better than Mother Nature .... Welcome and I hope you stop in often!
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!
Nothing can brighten a room like a vase of 'dancing' Poppies.
Enjoy this gorgeous flower as it sheds it's fuzzy pods - watch as it unfurls its petals into ruffled skirts.
When cutting poppies you may want to wear gloves because they do exude a substance that can irritate your hands. Use a sharp knife, and immediately sear the end of the stem with a match or dip them into a pot of boiling water.
Then it's time to let them arrange themselves in your favorite vase or container. Don't miss out on bringing some of these lovely blooms in to brighten up your day.
