HI, just stopped in and lo and behold. Have been busy house hunting, sorting, going to appointments etc. Most of the snow has melted , except the large piles left from clearing roads/driveways and garden areas in the shade. In the yard, all that is left is the yucky stuff...luckily it will be covered by the inch of snow due Thurs night. That should make things tidy for holiday visitors, then this lady better start clearing up some of the outside mess..I see lots of fun in days ahead, but not a lot of flower work. I do need to start rooting curly twig willow to take with me when I move this year.

Good to hear from you Marcia! Sounds like you are very busy at the moment. Keep warm with the new snow heading your way!
I remembered your floral design magazine had a demo showing how to make an easter egg with fowers.
We are decorating the new cafe for easter and I thought it would be nice to make a few eggs!
Thanks again and Happy Easter!

Oh, pretty egg. I didn't get any cut flowers, just brought down the 3rd Phal. orchid that is blooming. I have 2 of the larger bloom ones now on the table..they have only set about 6 buds this time. The smaller purple has about 20 in full bloom with 6 yet to swell on the end of the stalk And has set up a side bloom stalk!! I must have fed it at just the right time (although all on same schedule).
Ah!! What a thought!! I will take photo tomorrow and post it..a bit of color for cheer as it is snowing Again ( we received about 6" Thursday night-heavy stuff). The sidewalks cleared yesterday and then Tah Dah..started fluffy snow 2 hours ago.

Marcia - thanks for that link. I have never heard of a corsage magnet before. I'll have to give it a try - I work in a laboratory building so I can round up some tall graduated cylinders and use them for vases.

Hi, I have fallen behind and need to catch up. We got hit with the flooding, but not anywhere as bad as other folk. My garden was under water about 6" and we had volunteers sandbagging the beach.
I need to look at the web to see the magnet corsage. I think that I missed the last magazine, but will try to get to the craft store next week-end.

Edited to add: going to look for the corsage magnets. That is just lovely.

HI, moving slow. Had focused on sorting out the garden , in order to make room for lawn and curb appeal for potential sale. Being that any task takes Way longer than expected, I am still digging away at it. Given the current market situation, it is a good thing I am slow. Will be cutting back large portions of the curly twig willow and plan on holding onto the cuttings with both hands.!! Family rightly points out that my interests and project plants greatly outweigh my finished work..still going to hang on!!!!
It is almost Oct..where does the time go.?
Will try to add photo of wreath I made several seasons ago, with paper from the river birch hot glued to a styroform ring. will See if it works this late:)
guess not with edit. will try with new post

Hi Marcia, Good to hear you are ok. The summer seemed to come and go in a flash! Your willow sounds great, will you be making an Autumn arrangement with it? I would love to see your silver birch wreath when you find the photo!

HI, Have lurked, but only briefly on-line due to energy. I am SO happy that I posted the website...the store hasn't carried the last several issues (I would use my 40%) coupon.So at least I can find the neat stuff and not buy a subscription that is a costly way to look at loads of ads.
Lovely work.
I made a tree of 3-4 types of conifer greens (minimalist Christmas) It is about 1 foot tall. Photo should give you the general idea, if not a great shot. I used floral foam and just tapered a block.

Hi Marcia,

That is a cute tree. I have been making my own tree for the last few years with a tomato cage and fake garlands - it is nice that you use real conifer leaves so that you get that nice fresh conifer smell in the house. I have only looked at a few of the demos, but I enjoy them. I would have never known about this magazine if you did not post it. So, much thanks from me too.

I just pulled out my old old Previews...i'm one of those off and on subscribers, but keep them all when I do get them. Some goodies just never go out of style! INfact the EGG is in one of them from years back!

I do do work with fresh too, but only when the garden is a blooming! Always wanted to have a shop of my own, just never happened, but I am certified through a floral school. Just do part-time favors. Dog-gone coolers though to keep the lives the cost has always killed me and sorry WM, I just do not cotton to your fresh. They do not last long enough.

Right now I am having to work on a sympathy wreath...so will catch ya later!

HI, spring in WI this last week , with the Farmers' Market opening early ( I missed it)
Note: Galax plants don't like to be wintered over in warm house. I managed to keep one alive out of 8. The one I planted outside (had snow cover until late due to shade from solid fence) is doing fine.
Does anyone know the variety of small hydranga (sp) that is being used in arrangements, esp. for weddings. The bloom is size of baseball. I think it is so very pretty. I am behind on just about everything..nothing new there. I finally got my abandoned calla lilies crowded in one pot and have a full bloom already. I will have to pop out some of them ...soon.
Carry on and create. :)
