I always love starting the day in our beautiful cutting gardens (thank you Gardener Donna Mears!) and today was even better because I got to share it with an amazing group of women. The charming and talented ladies from Southern Weddings Magazine just happen to be visiting Fearrington for a retreat. We had a casual stroll through the cutting gardens followed by a very informal lesson in bouquet design. It was so interesting to see who picked what – and although they all cut from the same gardens, each and every bouquet was unique! I think we even won over a few of the “not really flower lovers” in the group. Thanks for sharing a little part of your day with me, ladies — it was fun!
