GRAY Magazine

We are very honored to be featured in the current issue of GRAY Magazine! We created the arrangement for this article a year ago last April, so that the flowers shown would actually be in season when the article was published. Many thinks to the fabulous Debra Prinzing for writing such a nice piece, and for all the farmers at the Seattle Wholesale Growers Market for growing such incredible flowers! You can read the article online here.

This is the arrangement we created, photographed by Alex Hayden. Narcissus, Iceland poppies, anthriscus foliage, hellebores, peony-flower tulips, ranunculas, white dicentra..... gotta love spring!

A little hellebore love....

It is hard not to get REALLY EXCITED during hellebore season. Hellebores are undoubtedly one of my all time favorite flowers, and a special jewel during these early months of the year when things are just starting to get going.
Lovely and magical. This arrangement features WA grown Hellebores, Spirea and Salal,  Oregon grown Viburnum, and California grown Ranunculas. Hello spring!
