Today, I was found by an assistant editor of Flower Magazine and asked if I might be willing to add a link from my blog to the magazine. (This is not a sponsored post.) One: I am flattered that she thought my blog to be a good fit with the magazine. Two: I would not link or endorse something I could not "get behind" myself, so I went to check it out. I had never heard of the magazine before.
Turns out, I will be happy to add the link, and I liked the magazine site so much that I am writing a little post about it so you all might find the beauty and serenity that I found there. This magazine has gorgeous photos, and very useful tips and information. I really liked this "sneak peak" from the current issue about flower arranging in a variety of vases. The magazine is a wonderful resource for wedding planning, and the current issue features a beautiful New Orleans inspired wedding.
Based in Birmingham, Alabama, Flower made its debut in March, 2007. It includes monthly "perennial" sections from how-to tips for the amateur to trade magazine information for professional florists and floral designers. I took the "What flower are you?" quiz from the home page, and I turned out to be:
The legend goes that when an ancient king found himself trapped between a river and the enemy, he cleverly used irises growing in the river as a guide to safety across the shallowest part of the river. Perhaps this is why the iris is now considered to be an emblem of wisdom. You are a rational and observant person, and therefore are an excellent problem-solver. You enjoy learning about how things work and often prefer to work alone. Independent, analytical, and a lover of learning, you stand out for your competence and intelligence.
