Timing, they say, is everything. I’ve been moving Amaryllis from cold to warmth, trying to either hold or push bloom time for a couple of weeks now for clients and myself and rather than grow frustrated I’ve only become more enamoured. Delivered as cuts in bud, they work for weeks (I’ve been elasticking their bases to prevent flaring and poking sticks up stalks). The huge bulb I carried from Holland to UK to Canada (Officer: “Do you have a turnip in your bag?”) is now 3ft tall in glorious bloom (about a week early but better early than late!). #awaywego #christmasflowers

“Learning the names of our many wild neighbors is an exercise in perspective and empathy, transforming the outdoors from a pastoral backdrop into a world of parallel societies inhabited by diverse creatures, each with its own character and career.” Ferris Jabr
I read this in @tmagazine this past weekend and thought YES because I’m a naming freak but also I’d just finished a story for @gardenista_sourcebook (link in profile) about the work of @humanegardener and author Nancy Lawson. One of the keys is an awareness of habitats and the ‘careers’ of creatures. What do you do for the wild ones? .
Special thanks to @papress and to Nancy for speaking with me about her important work and @ferrisjabr for the wise words. Take heart.

Before the doves 🕊, which have roosted on some branches outside my front door. And happy Poinsettia day! (Never met a Euphorbia I didn’t admire, though some of the knobbly and spiky ones inspire more awe than desire.) .

Four wonderful wreath workshops and I’m asking myself ‘why aren’t you posting many wreaths?! Where’s your holiday spirit?’. I suspect in the fleshy folds of Amaryllis, but happy to report rubbing alcohol has worked like a charm on the pine-sapped clothing...buckets yet to tackle. Any tips?

“The use of a ‘figurine’ to complement a flower arrangement—whether it is a Disney lamb or a plastic gnome or a Dresden china shepherdess or even a painted Madonna—is the sign of a very vulgar mind.” ~Beverley Nichols 🕊🕊🕊

That maple 🍁 Lunaria + orchid bouquet. More in stories momentarily. Pics in from @moonrisephoto 👏@fluxandstone

Last year’s this year, which reminds me of all the boxes of holiday whatnot that have been pulled from closets and exploded upstairs. .

Why should you take a photo before you send out your work? Because sometimes it sprouts ears 🦊 Foxy number for @leisure_thebrand. .

There are so many things that shouldn’t fly but do: peach and blue.

Those eggs! Pics of my arrangement just arrived from @putnamflowers and I’m ready to frame the series 🤩 Now where did I put those butterflies 🦋?

December! Just listened to @thomasbloomflowers on @cultivating_place podcast whilst wreath wrangling in my garage/studio. Oh the glamour: Fingers sticky with pitch, rain pouring down, no heat, so many berries and branches I spilled buckets, tripped on twigs, then poked bamboo up the necks of amaryllis, snapped elastics, heaved bales of pine, tried bending feathers with said sticky fingers...did I mention poky wires and pods? If it weren’t for the fabulously festive conversation between Tom and Jennifer I’d truly be Scrooge right now! #gettinginthespirit #needaneggnog

Squeezing one last (maybe) pic in before we hit the holiday season here with wreath workshops all weekend. December tomorrow...where does the time go?! Bells of Ireland, amaranth, dahlias, nicotiana, zinnia and scabiosa from October. #tbt Seuss-season?
