Still processing

Written by



This past week was a whirlwind of travel, family adventures, beautiful flowers, lots of driving, learning so much my brain hurt, new experiences, personal growth and wonderful new friends.

I’m still half out of my body, mostly out of words and trying desperately to reintegrate back into the new busy spring rhythm here at home. We returned to blooming flowers, a full inbox and orders to be filled.

So instead of rambling on and on about all of the amazing things I saw, the fact that Jose Villa autographed my copy of his book and photographed my bridal bouquet!!!, the thrill I felt shaking hands with Joel Serrato and hearing he follows me on Instagram, watching Kate Holt flower, meeting precious little Alice, not being the only grower in the group and making so many amazing new friends… instead I’ll leave you with some images from the Flower Wild workshop.

More details to come, I promise, but for now……

    Oh, Erin, I can never get over how gorgeous your work is! Can you tell me the name of that pink tulip with the cream colored tips? They are breathtaking!

    • Floret on

      Terri, isn’t it stunning!? Sadly, none of the varieties were labeled so it remains a mystery.
