I didn't mean for our playdate at the reservation to end in collecting wildflowers, but it did. On the way there we kept passing patches and clusters of goldenrod along the roadside. I love goldenrod, it reminds me of the patches of wildflowers in the fields by my home growing up in western new york. As I was pushing one of my daughters on the swing, I saw bountiful amounts of it not far off. With a 14 month on my hip and two wee excited girlies in tow, we picked wildflowers, which might look like weeds to anyone else, but quite an afternoon treasure to us.
I love all things green. Succulent leaves, interesting textures, soft moss. I am a professional floral designer who has created a venue to work artistically both with modern dried floral and fresh container plantings and still be home with my little girls. Fresh from the garden state, flores del sol.
