We haven't had much rain yet this year, so the subdued greyish greens, blues, and umbers I usually associate with fall are still prevalent in the landscape and garden. Hopefully soon we'll have some real rain to bring on the green grass and wildflowers, but in the meantime I'm enjoying the calming colors as I tidy my annual financial reports and prepare for the coming season. I am getting increasingly excited for spring and summer weddings to come!

But my flub is your gain! For $30, I'll be making some special deliveries of these beauties to homes and offices in Napa (sample arrangement below). If you or a Napan you know could use a Wednesday pick-me-up, please give The Monkey Flower Group a call at 707-418-8615. : )
[Announcement: We're all sold out! Thank you!]

When a childhood friend requested I provide the flowers for his very well planned (whole family-involving, escalatingly romantic, multi-location, treasure hunt of a) proposal, I wouldn't have agreed to help if I didn't believe his gal would definitely say yes, elaborate proposal or not. : ) Congratulations, N&B!

Here's a smattering of what The Monkey Flower Group has been up to these past two weeks. I've continued to be so impressed by the bounty of beautiful local materials available- nearly everything pictured in this post was grown in Northern California, and mostly right here in the Bay Area. The exception is the stock which was trucked up from Los Angeles. I splurged on it as consolation for not allowing myself any of the gorgeous blooms being flown in from Holland this time of year (I think we did fine without them, and goodness knows there are better uses for those fossil fuels . . . ).
Happy New Year!
