Spring. Really. And Preston Bailey .
Watching the Today Show and it's snowing in New York, as the weatherman announces that Spring arrived this morning.
In some parts of the country, the first flowering Spring branches like forsythia might be showing that optimistic yellow against the transitional grays that segue Winter into Spring.
New born lambs and bunnies are images we hold dear when we think of Spring.
And little peeps too.
Preston Bailey made the little peeps, and it made me think of him today. He's a part of my past, as we were two about town trying to make our way in event design. He's a dear man, a major talent, a nice boy from Panama who made it big time by working super, super hard.
His design vision is always pushing the boundaries of what you can do with a flower. I love his flower dogs.
And check out these huge over scale pineapples made from sunflower heads! The man is playful and a genius.
He does the classic as well as the fantastic. Here's some tulips and bunnies to get you thinking about your upcoming Easter table.
He has several books out, big beautiful coffee table books, a web site, along with his thriving successful business in New York, and he has a blog HERE!
So Happy Spring. Is the weather fine and Springy today where you are? Or is Winter still being stubborn, not realizing the party is over.
Preston Bailey - so good looking! Er, I mean what a talent! Aw c'mon, it's Spring when a woman's fancy awakens ha ha.
