Pieris, roses, scabiosa, and anemone….a few of my favorite flowers. When I finished this arrangement it overwhelmingly reminded me of my grandmother. She was elegant and stern. As a young lady she had jet black air and she married a sailor. They went to fancy clubs in NYC in the 1940’s and danced. In her older years she had snow white hair, perfectly polished nails, and a house of blush pink filled with cherub statues and chandeliers. I love these pictures of her when she was young. My dad is little guy on the left in the picture above.

this arrangement was part of my column n ruffled, see it here.
