Early summer....creative pursuits workshop.

Well, I know it's rather difficult to envision peonies,  if you live anywhere near Ontario, Canada, this time of year.....

but, none the less, they will be showing their pretty heads, in my garden, with arrival of mid June....usually by Father's Day, they are front row and center....

With the sub zero temps all this week, and staying put indoors with my tea and warm socks, I have been thinking about business, yes, flower business!

With my abundance, of natural materials, from our surrounding woodland, and English garden variety flowers,  and roses I grow in my garden, it would seem only natural to offer a foraging and floral arranging workshop, to be held here in the gardens at Acorn Lane...

Vintage silver containers, collected over the years, would be perfect vessels to hold your hand tied bouquet, while you watch your creation take shape...

The Fairy garden roses will be in full bloom, yours for the picking....

Flowering shrubs will also be in full bloom mid June....these flowering branches add a natural touch to any formal bouquet....my fav addition, to add an uncontrived, just picked look to your design...

Duchess of Edinburgh clematis, from my garden, above, makes a great impact flower, when grouped with others....the vines and tendrils, are especially beautiful in arrangements...

I also grow the Fairy, in a creamy white...if pink hues are not your thing!

Ferns are a staple in the garden, and I love to use them in bouquets...

The plan is to come and enjoy the beauty of a natural setting, while arranging a hand tied bouquet with flowers fresh from the garden.  A beautiful dessert by MAM Gourmet will be included with a cup of tea or cappuccino when we break...
