Thankful

 

It seems to be that time of year where blog posts are full of thankfulness. Well here is one more… Flowers bring me such joy, planning them, planting them, tending them, harvesting, ordering them and most of all sharing them with others. I feel so lucky to have a “job” that is involved in so many important parts of our lives, new babies, weddings, graduations, death, “just because I love you”… the list continues! Knowing that I was able to create something to brighten so many Thanksgiving tables is such a great feeling. Even though I love my flower filled life it can be a little stressful at times and I have been known to work a few too many hours in a week. This fall I attended a workshop in Oregon that was such a nice reminder to slow down and a great opportunity to make new flower friends. Here are a few photos from Foraged & Found in Sisters Oregon with Ponderosa & Thyme. Ponderosa & Thyme is offering a variety of workshops in 2016 and one, Alaska Wild will be on beautiful Prince of Whales Island in South East Alaska . One last note… Thank you Anne Blodgett of anneblodgettphotography.com.
