Happy autumn everyone. Swipe for a glow🍂

When dead-heading turns to meadow-making.

One of my students presented on the difference between structure and form in lyric essays today, positing that form is the 'shell' and structure 'is how the piece moves'. Rather liked that definition 🦀

About to go for a swim through the flowers with my snips. @forevergreenflowerco threw down the gauntlet this morning with anemone sprouting. Where oh where😱

You never know til you try. Orange, pink, magenta, brown? Gaga for this one, but it's gone. (Btw I started this arrangement with Hamari Gold and it just couldn't sit well with Labyrinth which actually has more hot pink/magenta than one would think...or mine do. Anyways the amaranth came next and rest fell into place after that.) #colourlove #colorstory

Lacinato kale stalk I yanked earlier this week and held in water. The flying saucer is a patty pan. .

Here's looking at you 👀Dahlias Bridezilla (not half as exciting as the name) and Platinum Blonde which is always a joy and never too brassy. That said, let women be whatever kind of woman they want to be and flowers flowers. #namingissues

Just got off the phone with an entomologist who informed me we have over 500 species of aphids in our province. Rocked my boat.

Due to the storms in the US we've had a bedroom open up for our workshop at the Cambo Estate in Scotland, Oct. 10-11. And it's a glorious bedroom, The Blue Room, complete with an ancient four-poster in the grand 19th century house. This picture was taken last October in the 2.5 acre walled garden (the wall is visible in the distance) when I served as visiting florist, ate a lot of apples, and made big things with perennials from the naturalistic garden. This year @simplybyarrangement and @hedgerow are joining me for a two-day floral AFFAIR which includes two garden tours and a day of design work (and dinners in the burgundy dining room, drinks in the drawing room, etc.). We'll be working in the renovated stables and enjoying the whole estate which runs down to the North Sea. A true Scottish country estate (in the same family for generations) and now with a fun artistic bent, I'd love to see that Blue Room filled, if only to share my love of this place. The week I spent @camboestate changed me, I expect it will you too. Link in profile for more information.

I'm headed to pilates for the first time in months. My back a taut thing, my abdominal muscles at half power. I squat when I garden, but stoop too. Rather awful at looking after my body but here are some lovely blooms it grew.

Texture time. I'm almost reluctant to admit I love this palette as the cream/green/burgundy thing may be overdone, but they harmonize so well, convey a kind of stop/go/rest. 🚥🚦🚥

Another one of lovely Laurence with her work. Is it just me or is photographing people made happy by flowers just way more fun?
