Friday Flowers—Inspiration!

PPerfection is the only word to describe these Friday Flowers. Florist and author John Grady Burns and his partner Jill Helmer along with my lovely friend Betsy Powell scored with the fantasy of flowers they arranged for Easter services at The Cathedral of Christ the King in Atlanta. Nearly every shade of white and pale Spring green filled the classical urns and illuminated the beautiful cathedral—simply Perfection! Oh, and by the way, the viburnums used in the  arrangements were all cut from Betsy’s amazing garden.

Check back next week for information about a new give-a-way featuring author John Grady Burns.
