Seasonal Flower Alliance: June 5

Written by

IMG_8566The last few days the team and I have been busy clipping and prepping for this weekend’s Floret Workshop.  It will be our first Seasonal Floral Intensive of the year and we’ll be spending three amazing days surrounded by incredible seasonal blooms and exploring natural design techniques together in a beautifully restored historic barn. It’s going to be epic!  I can’t wait to welcome the 20 lovely ladies that are coming from across the continent to be with us.  One of my favorite moments is when I  set them loose to cut as many flowers as they can carry from our fields.  I love hanging back and watching their reactions and hearing their joyful reactions (and squeals!)  when discovering different flowers.

It could be a bouquet all by itself.

Here are a few of my favorite Seasonal Flower Alliance submissions from this week:

Ready to join in the flowery fun? Here’s a quick summary of how you can participate in the Seasonal Flower Alliance:
