Twisted Tulips

A friend of mine was lucky to receive this tulip bowl for Valentine's Day. A tip from her to make your tulips last longer: she said that every morning she put a couple of ice cubes in the water. Tulips do not like the heat as they will open very quickly. Tulips can actually continue to grow 2" after they are cut. Do you have any secrets to make your tulips last longer?

Modern Cymbidiums

I am very excited to be creating flowers for Hughes Clothing here in Victoria. The store itself is a great space and I love to see my flowers displayed in such a beautiful environment. If you have never been to Hughes, you must go check out their amazing designer clothing and their very helpful staff!

Hellebores - Garden

This is a hellebore, and it is the first flower to bloom in my garden. I love to be able to pick flowers from my garden, knowing exactly how fresh it is and where it came from is pretty great!
