I tried to tell a story in one of my flower classes last week. I wanted to say how working with flowers has become such a gift in my life. Simple enough, but I don't think I was up to any eloquence that day.

Being alone in the studio, working with flowers is like a drug. A fortuitous talisman for a depressive type like me.

To think that I can share a fraction of that energy with you makes me feel very happy.

Above is a preview of that shoot I worked on yesterday.
Congratulations to Whitney for winning today's giveaway. I wish you all could win....(Margaret and her 11 pound baby boy!) please enter again next week.

All yours,

Hi Sarah,
I totally know the feeling! I work with flowers also in my wedding flower business ( I think I'm really lucky too. To be surrounded with such beautiful and inspiring things is so uplifting.

I love following your blog and your beautiful work. I'm based in New Zealand and we don't get the incredible varieties of Peony and ranunculus among other things that you guys seem to get (so jealous!).

All the best

Thanks Sarah! I took one of your classes (fragrant flowers) way back at the beginning of my pregnancy actually ;)

Nicely put. It's so great that you're doing this.

Yeeess! I think I do it for me more than for my clients. We're so lucky to have found an artform where we get to make sculptures every weekend for good money. Loving all your photography lately of moody arrangements. So ephemeral.
