I love to use fresh, local and seasonal flowers as much as possible to stay within the natural rhythms of the earth. The Earth feasts in flowers during the summer months. With vibrant colors and large blooms like peonies and dahlias, we dance with flowers in our hair to celebrate the longer days. As a florist, summer flowers make bouquets feel extra abundant and lush.
