Last night's workshop was jam-packed with gorgeous spring flowers and, boy, was I ever amazed by the finished designs my "students" put together. When teaching, I take a step by step approach and then stand back and let the creativity and experimentation take over. There is always, always, always a moment when I look at the designs and freeze because the beauty and individual expression of design simply overwhelm me. Happened again last night!
With the upcoming holiday weekend in mind, I challenged workshop participants to craft a design which could be lightly freshened up for next weekend if they are hosting a gathering. We put in bonus potted pansies which enhanced the designs and can be planted outside for months of enjoyment. Thank you, wonderful flower friends, for the courage to give this a try. I hope you are proud of your creations. I know I sure am! I hope to see you again at a future workshop.
