I spent some lovely and inspiring time in the garden late this afternoon. In preparation for the Mother’s Day Posy Workshop, I puttered through gathering ingredients to make a Posy that I can use in social media. While doing so, I thought about why I do this, specifically, dreaming of the language of flowers and their sentiments. There are many reasons, but one of the main reasons is that these dainty blooms seems so innocent in their ephemeral beauty, but their messages in the language of flowers leaves you with such a dramatic impact. Posies are highly impactful to their recipient and highly memorable. I love that! I love looking out into the gardens or woods and contemplating all the sentiments held in those leaves, stems and blooms. I love making these sentiments in flowers, Posies. I love teaching others too. That’s why I’m so excited about our upcoming Mother’s Day Posy Workshop!
Here’s the Posy I made this evening. I selected ingredients with sentiments that would be appropriate for all the mothers in our lives, and all levels of mothers too!
All of these ingredients came directly from the garden. You don’t need to have an extensive garden either. At my workshop, I’m going to show you how you can gather (forage) for your selections from what you have growing in your yard, garden, and even patio pots!
I hope you can join us for our Mother’s Day Posy Workshop planned for May 7th. I cannot wait to share what I know with all the guests. By the time we’re done we’ll have some posy-making fiends…just like me! Here are the details. We’ve capped it at 12 guests, so sign up soon! We’d love to have you.
May 7th, 2-4 pm
