To get away from all the Christmas hustle and bustle I wandered in my winter garden last month. We had had a touch of frost here and there at night times but nothing too harsh for these hardy December blooms. I gathered all the flowers I could find and started hunting for a big blue vase to create a decidedly un-christmass-y arrangement, which ended up being just the ticket for my bah humbug blues.
I am a florist and urban flower farmer, I grow my flowers sustainably in underused and neglected areas in my North Portland neighborhood. I make floral designs for all sorts of occasions and also peddle flowers at the local flower market.
