“I have been planning events for 25 years and arranging flowers for 18. I love what I do and I do what I love. Born in Atlanta, Georgia and raised in Savannah, I have been so blessed to have grown up with the grace and charm of old Savannah. This grace was instilled by both of my grandmothers and mother who were avid gardeners. One of them continued planting tulips and weeding her garden until the age of 86. My mother and I planted a large organic garden when I was but 10 years old. I remember her planting seeds in eggshell halves filled with soil and placing them in the window to germinate. Once they sprouted and took root, we would transplant them to our garden. Of course our organic garden was filled with nutrients that we tilled into the ground from the organic remnants of our kitchen, such as coffee grinds, vegetable cuttings and left over biodegradable food.
The charm of azaleas and dogwoods in the spring and gardenias and hydrangeas in the summer are fond memories for me. As a child (and even today), I can not resist the urge to fill the house with vase after vase of these native beauties. Every morning in June, I make my way to my own gardenia bush bearing hundreds of fragrant blooms, with scissors in hand. Waiting in the kitchen are delicate glass vases awaiting these lovely blossoms. To this day, the smell of wisteria in the spring takes me back to my grandmother’s backyard carrying an Easter basket and looking for pastel colored eggs. Each fall, the subdued tiny blooming tea olive still plays tricks on my nose as I feverishly look to clip the branch permeating this heavenly smell. I truly enjoy the beauty of all flowers and all varieties…… the smell, the colors, sizes shapes and textures. It is my great joy to paint with flowers and bring the grace and charm of my darling city to the pleasure of others.
“….Look at the lilies of the field and how they grow. They don’t work or make their clothing, yet Solomon in all his glory was not dressed as beautifully as they are. And if God cares so wonderfully for wildflowers that are here today and thrown into the fire tomorrow, he will certainly care for you….” – Matthew 6:28-30
