Pam - housemartin said...

geez will you please stop with this? Are you kidding me? Peonies and anemone in november - and seriously the ranuncula never sleeps over there in NY - making me jealous. We have red ilex and carnations over here!

Your gorgeous flowers would look lovely in Sheepshead Bay.

Jamie said...

t. l. spencer said...

Just a Girl Named Kate said...

If your flowers could talk, I'm sure they would say...

"...I drink dew for wine, and hearken to
The voices of the birds, and dance
To the rhythmic swaying of the grass.

I am the lover's gift; I am the wedding wreath;
I am the memory of a moment of happiness;
I am the last gift of the living to the dead;
I am a part of joy and a part of sorrow.

But I look up high to see only the light,
And never look down to see my shadow..."
- Khalil Gibran

Thank you for sharing your gift.

Sharon said...

Would love to send a beautiful bouquet to one of my best friends who just moved to NY to ask her to be a bridesmaid as I can't do it in person. Love u Saipua!

Just moved back to Brooklyn after a year away, and looking for good omens. Pretty please send some my way?

ollie-uh said...

Holy cow, those are gorgeous. I think I need a little gorgeous in my Brooklyn apartment!

Chris said...

Gorgeous flowers, as always. I know your arrangements aren't conducive to FedEx shipments, but oh how I wish they were. I would buy them weekly and have them shipped down here to FLA.

Faryn said...

Ooh la la. How lovely is this! Yes please.

Robin said...

Oooo! I love that you keep doing this. Fingers crossed.

Whitney said...

I follow your blog daily and love the soft touches and interesting lines you always incorporate in your flower arrangements. I'm in Florida and planning a wedding down here. I have shown my florist multiple photos from your site saying I want my flowers to look like this...

Anyway, I was just up in NYC visiting my matron of honor, who is the bestest darnest most wonderfulest friend anyone could ask for, and I would love to have flowers delivered to her. She planned a bachelorette party for me up in the city, and it was amazing! Hopefully these flowers can be a wonderful gift to her. Thanks!

Whitney said...

Opps, forgot. Surfer4121@aol.com

Margaret said...

I just had a baby (an 11 pound boy!) and I'm home all day long....some gorgeous saipua flowers would be nice to stare at ;)

M.K. said...

Your blog is always a site for sore eyes. Forgive the pun, but 'tis true, 'tis true! A bouquet in person would be an amazing antidote to the doldrums of office life!

Elizabeth said...

Maria said...

Just Because they are Beautiful and Otherworldly Peaceful and I could use some of both.

This is my last weekend in NYC until April! I'm leaving on a national tour on Sunday, but my fiance (who's training in CT) is coming home on Saturday to see me off. Your flowers would certainly add romance to our last night home together.
