'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!

A Day in the Life of A Dreamer

My photo
PA, United States
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!

Life After Best Buds ....

I cannot believe that it is almost the end of April .... some of you may not be aware that I officially retired from the Wedding Floral Design Business December 2012. It was time to turn the page and start a new chapter. Owning and 'growing' Best Buds for the past 12 years into a successful Wedding Floral Design Studio was one of my Life's Goals but in 2012 I decided that it was 'time' to move on. Have I grown 'tired' of flowers ... heavens NO ... but I wanted to explore MORE things in life ... friends and family worried that 'I would grow antsy' when the Wedding Season would arrive -- but that just didn't happen. Instead I marvel at the fact that there are times 'I wonder' how on Earth did I run a business because it seems that there still are 'not enough hours in the day -- so now you're asking yourself ... what are you doing??? I'm not going to go through the whole litany but for starters ... photography ... My hubby bought me the camera of my 'dreams' for Christmas .... I have NO idea what I'm doing ... there are so many tutorial DVD's with this thing ... I have just 'chipped' the tip of the iceberg .. but I knew I wanted to 'capture' beautiful things that surround me on a daily basis -- wildlife, flowers, my gorgeous grand gals, etc. Here are just a few of my pics Hope you enjoy these pics ...as I said ... I'm not a professional photographer ...so please stop in again to visit ... I must get out to the garden now ... working on the strawberry patch ... Remember make today a great one!
