Flowers for Mother's Day from Passionflower

Mother's Day is really a fun holiday because it's busy but not crazy, Valentine's busy. Plus, it's hard to go wrong when there are so many great flowers this time of year.
For your viewing pleasure, more not so good photos of some really good Mother's Day

Our beloved maidenhair fern gives everything a little woodland feel.

Here's a close up.

We had dogwood and columbines!!!!!!
And springtime all around us.

Plus, Wendy's been doing this interesting thing where she carefully inverts the tulips and makes them look like some strange and beautiful flora.

At first I thought of it as a mild form of flower torture, but now I look at it as helping the flower along in it's unfolding. Always a surprise, never quite sure what we'll find inside.


  1. Hi, beautiful designs! Do you use any techniques for extending the life of the maidenhair fern? Thanks!

  2. Laurie - We buy ours from a local grower in Portland so it's pretty fresh. We just do the same we do with most fleurs - good clean water, some nourishing food, a little love, and a cool space.....but ferns can be tricky. My experience they either last a long time or they're gone in a day so try leaving your fern out for a day and see what happens.
