Event Season

Yesterday I helped arrange "flowers," which mostly consisted of terrariums and single orchids in tall glass tubes, for a wedding in downtown Troy.

My friend Barbara Jefts, who grows amazing things up at Native Farm Flowers, took me on as an assistant, and we talked a lot about the wedding flower business: how to finesse it, what it entails.

Barbara let me put together the aisle markers, 14 tiny bouquets

I'm nervous and excited to help a friend with her wedding flowers in late July, but I have to admit all the chapel bells have me feeling a bit heartsick. I better get outside.
