It was a busy autumn and winter at Busy B -- well at least busy with practice arrangements, combining flowers, working with a multitude of color palettes and such.
One of my favorite weekend activities is to comb the flower markets, both in New York and Boston to peruse the seasonal offerings. In my opinion, March is probably the best month for flowers. It has the sweetest and wide-ranging selection from sweet peas (of course), anemones, lush ranunculus, poppies, hellebores, tree peonies, peonies and hydrangeas. Roses and garden roses are readily available throughout the year, but their effect on me is truly season-less.
March is only missing the dahlias and clematis, which are just starting to come in.
