The rain to the wind said, You push and I'll pelt.' They so smote the garden bed That the flowers actually knelt, And lay lodged--though not dead. I know how the flowers felt. Robert Frost . Are you in a season of feeling “lodged but not dead?” If so, I know how you feel, I’ve been there too. In fact every creative I know goes through regular seasons of feeling “stuck”, especially when life is storming relentlessly. In those places there is often the need to hibernate and dig in deep, willing that the roots will hold fast while the wind and rain push and pelt. It can feel very bleak. If you’re in one of those seasons I want you to know there’s nothing wrong with you. You’re not broken and you’re not alone. New ideas will come, new inspiration, fresh perspective, IT WILL COME, but in the dark places it can be hard to remember the hope that is SPRINGTIME in the garden. It always comes, it does. I promise. Winter doesn’t last forever. . Love you guys. Reach out if you need something, you’re not alone. .

I love this photo of our workshop family from the most recent Ponderosa Workshop in England at @butleypriory, what a sweet time we had together! 😍 . Every workshop group is different, unique in its makeup but equally endearing and beautiful. The friendships that are birthed and grown through these experiences are priceless and beyond compare. When I look at this photo I can see the threads of love from each person to the next, and I know the net is there for each one as it's needed during this time and into the future. . One of my dearest beliefs is that #community is the key to happiness and fulfillment in your career, and therefore it's worth investing your heart and soul into 💗🌸📝 . This week, take some time and write out 5 goals you have for you and your business for 2018. Is community one of them? If so, consider booking a class or workshop to jumpstart and nurture the process! Head over to my website to see all the options for 2018 (link in profile!) I'd love to be a part of your flower journey. . Photo: @lesley_lau_ at @butleypriory with workshop team @elderoak_and_thorn @vervainflowers @mrmarkdavis
I love lighting incense before I start my flower mediations or creative process as a moment of focus before I begin. How do you set yourself up for success before meditation or creating? .

SOUTHERN FRANCE!! Registration for our workshop in partnership with @chateaugudanes has just opened and we can't be more excited! 😍 . We are thrilled to bring you a very special fairy tale workshop this August that will combine our passions for flower making, history, and community nurturing into 5 unforgettable days. The Château regularly hosts workshops of their own, and for this special week we're adding our Ponderosa schedule, combining forces to bring you two workshops in one! A Ponderosa Château workshop experience that is unique from any other workshop we are offering this year. . Together we will spend unbelievably beautiful days and nights at @chateaugudanes creating life long friendships and incredible floral art. We will explore the local culture & cuisine, sleep in beautiful rooms, and nourish our bodies and souls while we learn (and re-learn) the art of floral design amongst the restored (and still being restored- don't mind a little dust!) walls of our incredible home for the week. . This workshop is designed for new and experienced florists as well as photographers, stylists, creatives and dreamers of all kinds that want to grow and expand their skill set for more flexibility and creativity in their work. .
