Wednesday’s Flowers – The End

March 7, 2012

Wednesday’s Flowers is coming to an end. This has not been a easy decision and one I have been thinking about for a long while but after 103 posts over 2 years it is time for a change. Not to worry I will be still sharing…

wednesday’s flowers – tiny flower arrangements

February 16, 2012

Sometime times all you need is a tiny vase stuffed full of pretty flowers. That is what we did today for you in the Living Fresh flower studio. Tiny double yellow tulips with soft pink waxflower in tiny milk glass vases.

wednesday’s flowers – valentine’s day red

February 8, 2012

With Valentine’s Day only six days away, I want to use today’s Wednesday’s Flower post to discuss Valentine’s Day flowers and the use of the colour. We all are very familiar with the traditional 24 long stemmed red roses for the occasion but has…

wednesday’s flowers – pink oriental lilies

February 1, 2012

Sometimes you just have to splurge and treat yourself to something nice, right? One flower worth to splurging on is the Oriental Lily! Oriental Lilies are one of the most beautiful lilies out there and their scent is heavenly. One stem can have up to 5 blooms, so…

wednesday’s flowers – yellow primula

January 25, 2012

Spring flowers are everywhere right now, except outdoors! If you are tried of he silly weather we are experiencing why not bring a bit of Spring indoors? While shopping for ideas for today’s Wednesday’s Flowers post I came across some lovely 4″ Primula hortensis, also know…

wednesday’s flowers – yellow tulips

January 4, 2012

I was so happy to find fresh cut tulips for today’s flower post! I love fresh cut tulips and how they instantaneously cheer up a room! I must say that I am quite sad when tulip season ends in the floral world, but when it is…

wednesday’s flowers – oh little tree…

December 7, 2011

This year I’m not really in the glamorous, sparkly kind of Christmas mood. Perhaps it is due to the crazy year we have been though? Buying a house, quitting my full time job, moving, renovating and decorating…this list goes on. Therefore to end this year my soul…

Wednesday’s Flowers – Helleborus

December 15, 2010

For today I found a very surprising flower at the local grocery store, Helleborus niger. Helleborus is an outdoor perennial with creamy white flowers, which blooms usually under snow cover depending on the region you live in.  So to find it potted in the holiday section was a delightful…

Wednesday’s Flowers – Amaryllis

December 8, 2010

For me it is just not Christmas without an Amaryllis blooming in the house.  Forget the traditional Poinsettias, they just don’t do it for me, it is Amaryllis all the way around here.   The long-lasting blooms of the Amaryllis are strikingly beautiful and you can easily dress them…

Wednesday’s Flowers – Norfolk Pine

December 2, 2010

Well, the holidays are in full swing here, just finished cleaning up from our first party and I’m exhausted.  Despite the exhaustion, I still wanted to share today’s flowers with you.  In keeping with last week’s theme, white and natural, I created another quick and easy…

Wednesday’s Flowers – Frosty Fern

November 24, 2010

Can you believe it, the holidays are only 4 weeks away!  Yikes!  I have so much to do, so today I started decorating the house.  I like to keep it simple and fresh, while using product that will last from November until the beginning…

Wednesday’s Flowers – Mixed Colour Bouquet

November 17, 2010

Do you find you are really searching for colour at this time of the year?  I sure do, especially after a great fall full of rich and vibrant colours.  Grey and dark is a very hard transition, so I thought for today I would give you…

Wednesday’s Flowers – White Freesia

November 10, 2010

My apologies once again for missing a Wednesday, last week was a little too crazy busy for me to attend to my regular schedule and something had to give.  The reason for the craziness is the awesome blue and white wedding I had the pleasure designing flowers for.  I…

Wednesday’s Flowers – Fall’s End

October 27, 2010

Mother Nature really does keep giving and giving.  Have you taken the time to have a good look around your outdoors?  This time of year is full of beauty and small gifts.  If you look hard enough and add a bit of creativity, you…

Wednesday’s Flowers – Fall Pavé

October 20, 2010

Today I wanted to focus on Pavé floral arrangements.  I have not yet created one for Wednesday’s Flowers and I truly enjoy them, so I figured it was about time I shared one with you. Pavé is French for pavement and that is what…

Wednesday’s Flowers – Gran’s Garden

October 13, 2010

Happy Wednesday!!  Believe it or not, I have managed to squeeze one more bouquet from my garden.  A cute Fall Aster is currently in bloom and I found an ‘Autumn Joy’ Sedum still hanging around and knew they would look great together.  I paired them up with…

White Thanksgiving

October 6, 2010

I’m in shock that Thanksgiving is this weekend, where has this year gone?? Thanksgiving is a holiday I have always enjoyed and really, how can you not enjoy it?  Lots of hearty home cooked food, spending time with family and friends, pumpkins and pies…

Wednesday’s Flowers – Fall is Here

September 29, 2010

Fall is here in a big way, and with Thanksgiving being just around the corner, I thought I would share I quick way to create a simple fall Chrysanthemum arrangement.  Fall Mums, as they are commonly called, are every where right now and there are two…

Wednesday’s Flowers – Fall Charm

September 22, 2010

Welcome fall, I’m finally ready!  To celebrate, I walked through my garden looking for inspiration for today’s post, while hoping to find a little bit of colour.  I managed to find some but I think this all be the last “from the garden” post for this…

Wednesday’s Flowers – Summer and Fall

September 15, 2010

Summer is slowly fading and fall is beginning to show its face around here.  I’m slowly getting more excited for the season to change.  I’m looking forward to the amazing colours, the crunch of leaves under foot, the crisp cool air and a layered…

Wednesday’s Flowers – Handmade Living

August 18, 2010

Creating things by hand makes me happy, it is an important part of my everyday life and my business.  I like to know when things are homemade and I prefer to buy handmade goods. With that being said, this post is a little difficult…

Wednesday’s Flowers – Summer White

August 4, 2010

I have decided that my garden is truly a spring garden, there are some very slim pickings out there right now.  Actually there has been very little colour action for months now.  Hence the spring garden comment.  I really need to do something about…

Wednesday’s Flowers – Summer Days

July 28, 2010

We are right in the middle of the lazy, hazy days of summer and I could not be happier.  We are getting a wonderful mix of hot, sunny days and rain.  We need the rain.  The flowers need the rain, today just happened to…

Wednesday’s Flowers – Teatime and Flowers

July 14, 2010

Where did last week go?  My life seems to be a whirl-wind lately and we just got back from a little vacation, crazy.  Today was a lot busier than I expected and I almost did not create flowers for this week’s enjoyment.  I have…

Wednesday’s Flowers – Fresh Lavender

June 23, 2010

Yay!!  The lavender is finally in bloom.  I think I love lavender almost as much as peonies; it is a flower that has so much to offer.  The smell is so refreshing and healing, the colour is really the prettiest shade of purple and…

Wednesday’s Flowers – Garden Green

June 16, 2010

I must say I have a very lush and green garden right now.  This makes me very happy but where is all the colour gone??  I need colour in my life.  Needless to say there were some pretty slim pickings out there today.  I…

Wednesday’s Flowers – Garden Mix Up

June 9, 2010

I cannot seem to keep out of the garden for Wednesday’s Flowers.  I get such a thrill picking flowers from my own garden.  So I had to do it again this week. I headed outdoors, early this morning, in the rain, to see what…

Wednesday’s Flowers – Peonies from my Garden

June 2, 2010

After much self debate I have come to the conclusion that peonies are truly my favourite flowers.  I do love all flowers but peonies; well I find them exceptionally spectacular. I love watching the plant grow from the ground in the spring, then seeing…

Wednesday’s Flower – Lily of the Valley

May 26, 2010

After spending an entire day out in the garden; weeding, cultivating, transplanting, getting some sun and some exercise, I came inside and looked around and missed all the flowers.  So after looking around the house, I decided the spot where I display my milk…

Wednesday’s Flowers – From the Desert

May 19, 2010

It finally feels like summer here; I’m loving the warm temperatures and all the sunshine!  Sunshine for me always brings inspiration and this week’s flowers were the result of the great weather we are having and a chance encounter.  Originally I had been thinking…

Wednesday’s Flowers – From the Garden

May 12, 2010

Well, my house smells amazing!!!  Oh, lilacs you make my heart sing and my house so joyful.  This week I could not resist the urge, which I have had for weeks now, to cut some fresh blooms from my garden and share them with…

Succulents for Wednesday

May 6, 2010

Well this is a little later than planned, life sometimes takes precedence. Have you come across something in the grocery store that you would never have expected to find there?  I did this week; before I started my shopping for food I decided to…

Wednesday’s Flowers – Aloe Vera

April 21, 2010

I know it is not a flower per say, but this little guy just had to come home with us.  Since I have not had an aloe plant in ages and I was not finding any of the fresh cut flowers at the grocery…

Wednesday’s Flowers – Cheerful Daffodils

April 14, 2010

We have been so fortunate with the weather, we are in full blown spring here in Ontario and I’m loving it.  Since the spring bulbs are flowering outside I thought it would be nice bring them inside this week as well.  Plus the local…
