Last weekend I had the honor to attend my first Art in Bloom exhibit featuring Leah’s arrangement. It was the perfect introduction to our Midwest spring with soft colors to accommodate Mathias J. Alten’s graceful impressionist style. Inspired by Alten’s use of delicate color and decor, the arrangement was a perfect pairing to the piece.
Leah's arrangement included calendula, carnations, clematis, delphinium, hydrangea, green ivy, lisianthus, roses, scabiosa, and wax flowers. Makes me want a spring arrangement in my home real bad! If you have the space in your yard, we can bring that floral arrangement outdoors as well.
One of my favorite activities is walking around on spring afternoons admiring everyone’s gardens and greeting all the neighborhood cats. There’s nothing like seeing a fine feline trotting along a bed of flowers to greet you! If you need to spruce up your yard for spring (and for your neighborhood cat brigade) sign up to get cool-sheathed annuals.
These include Helleborus, pansies, ranunculus, tulips, daffodils, and all bulbs. We recommend hydrangeas once it hits 40 degrees at night or they will brown! Annuals are perfect for a quick but long-lasting pop of color. They'll last you through the summer heat and sometimes the early fall! It always feels good to plant a long-lasting seed that you can nurture for seasons to come!
My man Wilber is looking forward to pottering amongst the hastas and petunias! Send us a message and we'll help beautify your yard for spring and prolong that beauty until fall!
