Flower Child



This past June our daughter Laura was married to Drew in a lovely wedding ceremony.

The weather was beautiful and the day filled with family and friends enjoying the ceremony location.

She wanted lots of flowers and a big, colorful bouquet to carry.

This was not surprise to us.

You see, this girl spent the first 3 months of her life at our flower shop.

The sights and smells of fresh flowers filled her first days as a newborn baby.

She sat in a baby seat on the design table and napped next to the blooming plants in her bassinet.

Her bottles were tucked next to buckets of flowers in the cooler.

It was a labor of love to make my flower child’s wedding bouquet.

Yes, I was up until 3 AM!

I was sure you wanted to see more vacation images!

The Mushroom House at Terrain at Styer’s in Glenn Mills PA.

This garden center did not disappoint with so much to look at, shop for.

 Even a Cafe to have a coffee or brunch on a beautiful Sunday morning.

And then get to work on all the garden chores!

The garden work is plentiful this month with flowers to dead head, weeds to keep at bay,

and the vegetable garden to tend.



No summer would be complete without some Zinnia’s in the garden or on my table.

Though my house is under construction, I’m still bringing in flowers for the table.

I’m in love with the morning light in my new dining room.

I ran out of Rooting Hormone and grabbed the next best thing, cinnamon!

You can use cinnamon and wow does it smell delicious in the greenhouse today!

June 20 on a beautiful Saturday, our daughter Laura married Drew.

The details were months in making.

After years of making wedding bouquets for brides, I created flowers for one of my own.

This is were they said their vows to each other.
