Pick One…Any One

March 30, 2017

Easter and Passover are just around the corner and nothing makes a simplequietmodern statement  than a classic glass cylinder vase filled with flowering branches. From your own yard, a friends garden or a trip to the market, this exercise is simple…pick a single type, fill your vase with water, grab your secateurs and give each branch a fresh clean cut. Done.
