Flowers engage me. They are a constant source of wonder and inspiration. I am intrigued by everything botanical from their cultivation, their history, and their various uses spanning from artistic to traditional, to medicinal and beyond. Our world is deeply involved with botanicals, and I spend my days honoring this relationship and discovering new ways to enrich the lives of others with this connection. I take great pride in what I do, and sharing with others fulfills me. "I must have flowers, always and always," and I think you should too.
