One of my favorite feelings is the anticipation of walking into a clean studio and seeing buckets filled with fresh flowers ready for designing.  This is when my creative juices begin to flow, and the worries of the world drift away.  At that moment the studio erupts into a cyclone of clippings and flower crumbs.  In this space I am focused, free from interruptions and the confines of time.  The fragrance of flowers and soft music enhance the atmosphere while the weather outside has no hindrance on my happiness.  Moments spent in creative endeavor are meditative and relaxing, and I think this is a key to maintaining health and vitality throughout life.

Tomorrow's post will showcase the finished arrangement that was constructed in the pictures above.

Stay tuned,
