Dream School

Thanks to my fabulous husband, I am spending three weeks at floral design school! 
Thank you...xoxoxoxo

Meet the instructor
John Grady Burns
floral designer extraordinaire, instructor and author of 
Personally Yours and Evergreen Colours of the Season.

John Grady and his two assistants, Jessica and Evalina, are teaching and critiquing and generally allowing us to have the time of our lives under their tutelage.

Here is a tiny sampling of what we have been up to this week.
This is called a "pave" arrangement because
the flowers are all very close together 
like a pave diamond ring!
I've been learning all kinds of little tidbits like this!

Seeded eucalyptus, pittosporum, myrtle and leather leaf
all woven together to fit tightly in a wide mouthed vase

My absolute favorite, so far...
25 roses made into this romantic topiary.
