Who are the magic makers behind the locally sourced flowers that adorn our tables?  Who really cultivates and arranges the seasonal blossoms that help make our events memorable?  It is with these questions in mind Debra Prinzing and David Perry set out to create their forthcoming book  A 50 Mile Bouquet.

We were delighted to spend time with them this past Summer when they stopped by to learn more about us & our {parking} lot garden.  She, a celebrated writer about gardens and he, a photographer with a lens primed for botanicals.  Together they are creating a special flower growing, gathering, and design guide available to you in April of 2012.

Check out their project– they have some exciting things to share!  Thanks for all the great inspiration Debra and David!
