“A Floral Fantasy, Part II”


60970656

I had spinal surgery Thursday, the 14th, which put me even further behind here…  I spent a week or so before the operation, cooking and freezing meals, stocking up on stuff around here.  Nearly one full day was spent satisfying requirements set by the main surgeon;  An EKG and Heart Stress Test, and a complete physical by the General MD including chest x-rays and complete blood analysis… Meanwhile, more on the 28th Annual Cathedral Flower Festival…

St. Cecelia Cathedral is considered #17 of 74 attractions in Omaha. This is certainly one of my favorite historic buildings, and the ceiling of the building  still has the original paintings throughout!  Though I don’t live remotely closet St. Ceceilia, it’s always worth the trip for the public events held there…

This years Flower Festival included several first-time participants as well as designers who have been a part of the event for many years.  I guess when we give or receive flowers, we don’t think of the growers, the pickers or the shippers and distributors.  That too, is a part of what was celebrated at A Floral Fantasy.

Pastel Roses & Vase Cards

I did collect a few hundred photographs!      A few which may actually make into the floral art I create.  From of course inexpensive posters to stretched canvas. From blank greeting cards to matching First Class Postage.  And what has become one of my favorite  categories, the floral coffee mug collection!

How often have you heard the phrase, “Say it with flowers”?   Browse around my website and the “store”.  Then  the next time you get that urge to say it with flowers, the recipient will certainly know the message you’re communicating!
