If your days seem bleak now that February gives us a hard landscape of frozen ground and barren trees, ( what about that Winter garden you are always planning and never execute?) I suggest a trip to your favorite nursery’s greenhouse (although those wonderful Mom and Pop shops seem to be disappearing around the country.) Or perhaps your Garden Club is offering a flower arranging talk! Mine was, yesterday! We were excited to have Miriam Landsman come with glorious flowers to show us unique ways of using flowers in the home.
I think even I could manage to execute the design above!
Miriam is associated with Garden Education Center of Greenwich where you will find Spring programs and events to thrill the flower arranger and the grower alike. They had bonsai in January, orchids and terrariums in February, dahlias and pruning in March – plenty to get gardeners without greenhouses through the Winter months.
Flower prices soar the week of Valentine’s Day but a bunch of tulips might not break the bank…or three…..
