the days are starting to get colder and the days shorter. but there are flowers blooming somewhere, just not here. i miss my local product but having a bouquet of clematis, vanda orchids, white peonies, sweet peas, astilbe and ranunculus is not so bad. i haven't used orchids too heavily in my work, but these vandas have certainly swayed me.

|hand-tied bouquet anemones, romantic antique garden roses, burgundy ranunculus, bush ivy and olive branches|
i've been quietly making flowers for weddings and deliveries for here, there and everywhere. i can never find the time for pictures or even worse the light is terrible for photos.
it's november now (clearly) and i miss my garden and having to harvest multiple bucketful of dahlias each weekend. but it's over now. i suppose impermanence is necessary. now i have next year to plan for and can fully anticipate the start of spring -- my favorite season. it would be easier to cope if i had travel plans but i don't.
