Happy Thursday!

Working Designer Wednesday

Here we are at Wednesday…again. The weeks fly by! Hope you enjoy…

1. A few ideas for putting your flower frogs to good use while storing them for your floral arrangements…from Martha.


2. Before and after…from Rebel Rebel…makes my arms sore…

3. A trip to the NYC flower market with Tracey Reynolds (Tracey Reynolds Floral Design). Seriously one of my favorite features ever…constantly amazed by moms in the flower business who juggle extraordinary talent and a passion for their families! No room for the faint of heart. Beautiful images and post by Petronella Photography

5. A  floral flag that was planted in the City of Lompoc, California, as a tribute by the Bodger Seed Company after the 9/11 attacks of September 2001. The flag was made of 400,000 larkspur flowers, measured 740 feet by 390 feet and covered 6.65 acres. Each of the fifty stars was 24 feet in diameter, and each of the thirteen stripes was 30 feet high.
