can we please fast forward to june so i can have buckets full of bearded iris again? the scent just slays me, and i love the pure seasonality of the blooms–they are only available for a few weeks, and really, one should only procure them locally. these were from one of my favorite farms in [...]
one last ode to these beautiful blossoms before we give them up for peach and cherry. mind the thorns.
A cheerful arrangement for your enjoyment. Maria Theresa garden roses, craspedia (aka billy balls, aka alien antennae), sweet peas, ranunculus, green trick dianthus, mimosa, tuberose, and maidenhair fern. If you can get past the mimosa, this one smells ah-mazing. Here’s to sunshine! P.S. Scroll back up and use the fancy new subscribe box to get [...]

maid of honor, centerpiece, bride, reception set up. all shot by my incredibly helpful husband, without whom i couldn’t have set everything up so smoothly. while he was floofing centerpieces and snapping photos, i was perched on a ladder hanging the altar backdrop, of which i’m sure the talented mr. longstreet has many photos.
