Besides friends and family, I think there is nothing that I love more than flowers. As the summer ends, I wanted to celebrate the beauty of the flowers as I was enchanted by the local wildflowers that bloom seasonally in town. There is something so precious about wildflowers, especially wildflower season in the mountains.
I found this 1980's flower dress that is so vibrant and beautiful it reminded me of the wildflowers. It inspired me to do a bit of foraging. In nature and in fashion, it was a celebration of wildflowers of all colors, pink, purple, yellow and white.
Inspired by the flowers, I wanted to do something unique and beautiful with edible flowers. It seemed only natural to do a charcuterie board filled with cashew cheese and locally grown figs. For a moment, it's like feasting within the garden of eden.
There are many lessons in the world of wildflowers. Some of us have a wild child spirit and bloom where we are planted, and other lessons are inspired by beauty. I've never once heard someone say anything negative about flowers. They are delicate and their beauty is inspirational even for some of the most world-renowned artists, like Monet.
"I must have flowers, always and always."
"Like wildflowers; you must allow yourself to grow in all the places people thought you never would."
