  • Winter flowers: A season of ethereal beauty

    The resulting look and feel of my first winter arrangements, both fresh and dried, ended up being some of my favorite arrangements of the year. Just like with any other season, they tell a story of winter in the Pacific Northwest with grace, and a unique, ethereal beauty.
