Well almost...... here in Chicagoland there is still snow on the ground and more on the way
What to do, when we are longing for warmth and 
brighter days?

YES, my favorites, good faux's that is

I can hear the groans, but wait, let's explore the options
This is our floral room at the shop. Because actual flowers are so fleeting, we can enhance and extend 
the season
Adoring spring branches, say Apple or Cherry blossoms, but loathing how quickly they fade, I make my own.
* First cutting real branches
* glue faux blossoms to the stems.....viola!
Finding geranium blossoms from another project I separated the blossoms and buds

These will last
Poppy's, Muscari and fresh moss in a bark vase
Tulips, Pansies, Poppies, Fritillaria, Lily of the Valley, fern and moss
Tulips, Muscari, Daffodil, Lettuce leaves and a little 
friend I brought back from England
Tulips, and Lilac

The best faux's, as in these tulips, are called 'Real Touch', they feel and definitely look real. Particularly fond of using these outdoors in containers with live plants, extending the season
See what I mean? Faux underplanted with live pansies
                         Can you even tell?                               

All faux.....think of these as "bridge" plants, taking you from one season to the next

If you have followed me for any length of time, you are probably surprised to see me in this format. Of late, it has been more INSTAGRAM. But when asked by this group of uber talented woman & treasured friends, I can only say yes and be grateful they asked . 

Pease read these ladies posts on SPRING REFRESH!

                          With love
