FREE GUIDE: 6 steps to a garden-style vase arrangement


On my small urban farm in downtown Monterey, I grow specialty cut flowers that you won’t find at a traditional florist or grocery store, always following sustainable, regenerative farming methods.

I transform these gorgeous, locally grown flowers into hand-tied bouquets and nature-inspired arrangements.

Each of my floral designs is a unique snapshot of season and place, customized to reflect your request and occasion, and always with a touch of whimsy.

I also love to design flowers for small events and weddings on the Monterey Peninsula.

In everything I do, my aim is to leave my little patch of earth better than I found it and to bring joy and beauty to my neighborhood and community in Monterey, Pacific Grove, Seaside, Del Rey Oaks, and Carmel-by-the-Sea.


Early summer brings a bit of a lull as many of the spring bloomers (daffodils, tulips, ranunculus) have gone to sleep, while the stars of summer (zinnias, dahlias) won’t be ready for a little while.

That’s not to say that there are no flowers blooming, though! My snapdragons and larkspur are putting on a show, calendula are going strong, and I can’t even begin to describe the sweet peas – I need to stand on a stepladder to reach some of them.

I’m also walking past my poppies several times a day to get to them before the bees do (they’re welcome to just about everything I grow, but poppies fall apart once they’re pollinated).

And while I don’t grow them myself, garden roses are in full glory right now, and I occasionally bring some in from other local farms for special events (like last weekend’s beautifully colorful wedding).

One of my favorite things about this time of year is just how fast the plants grow and bloom with so many hours of daylight. I can practically sit and watch the stems lengthen and buds unfurl. And so I do, whenever I can spare a moment!
