Question #1: What do you think of this monochromatic look? I love monochromatic bouquets…and this look takes it a step further…

Question #2: I’m trying to downsize my floral library. Thought I might give some of my design books away on the blog. What do you think of that idea? Would any of you be interested?

One more thing…

When you have time check out the Garden Party blog. I‘m in love with their bouquet of Peach Finess roses and Peach Parrot Tulips…
