This week’s links are all about one of my favorite things – flowers and plants! If you follow my Instagram feed, you know I’m obsessed with bright blooms, but perhaps not so great at the whole green thumb thing.
I love to make flower arrangements and could spend hours wandering around any sort of wild space or backyard picking sprigs and blossoms and putting them into a bouquet. Apparently I’m good at it. Or so the people who don’t feel like they’re good at it themselves tell me. For them, I found these easy tips for flower arranging, because it’s always helpful to start with the basics.
On a slightly fancier level, when you’re ready for the next phase of floral art, you might try these tips for creating a Chez Panisse-worthy arrangement. This guy has my dream job and maybe my dream backyard too, from the sound of it.
I am eager to try this creative, Japanese-inspired way of bringing the green indoors. Think I could keep it alive longer than all my attempts at air plant gardening?
Finally, I have a crush on these folks at the Flora Cultural Society, because I think they make beautiful things and I love their goal to “re-wild” their lives.
Are you a flower person? How does your garden grow?
