There's more to Easter than chocolate (but did you read the story in last week's WSJ about how eating chocolate regularly lowers body fat, cholesterol and blood pressure??? Honest...).
Marigold and Mint, the European-flavored flower shop in the classy little Melrose Market on Capitol Hill is offering a class for kids on adorning Easter bonnets with flowers (11a.m. to 1p.m. on Saturday April 7, $30 per child).
And talented owner Katherine Anderson reminds us it's time to order Easter flowers...like this still life of an early springtime narcissus and hellebore bouquet she pulled together to show Plant Talk readers one of the many possibilities for Easter flowers from her charming shop.
For more information, to reserve a place in the bonnet class, or order an arrangement, please email [email protected] or call the shop at 206-682-3111.
I hope the sun shines and warms your Easter celebrations...I'm not taking any chances, and am heading for Rancho La Puerta in Mexico for a week....so expect some blog posts from across the border, where I'll be giving talks about flower arranging based on "Petal & Twig" and soaking up the sun....
