About me

Location Highland, Utah
Introduction Years ago, my husband and I moved our family onto a five acre "gentleman farmer" parcel of land. A vineyard, massive native oaks, rolling hills, fruit trees, roses, a barn, a horse corral, a carriage house...and thousands of daffodils. The first spring on our little farm marked the beginning of my flower arranging efforts as I attemped to make daffodil arrangements--no greenery, no filler, no form, just daffodils. I didn't realize how elementary my efforts were until a few years later when a friend commented, "You're getting better!" My creative juices were triggered as I roamed the yard each week for over a dozen years with cutters and basket in hand. I clipped away at junipers, tulips, forthysia, roses, redwood trees, lilacs, calla lilies, iris, and others. Soon friends were asking if I'd help with this event or that event. I was a bit terrified to fulfill the first wedding request, but I was pleasantly surprised at the didn't look half bad! So I just keep creating, arranging and learning. Maybe my long-ago friend from 20 years ago would say again, "You're getting better!"
