Garden Bouquets and Beyond

Combining her lifelong experience as a gardener with her skills as a floral designer, Suzy Bales combines fresh flowers and foliage from the landscape for dozens of enchanting seasonal designs. Garden Bouquets and Beyond: Creating Wreaths, Garlands, and More in Every Garden Season is an all-encompassing collection of everything gardens and floral—from when to cut and how to arrange to using flowers, leaves, and vines in all types of unique decorations and arrangements. Stunningly illustrated with 150 photographs by Steven Randazzo, the book also features a foreword by renowned horticulturist Dr. Allan Armitage. With the latest research on conditioning and caring for individual garden flowers after they’re cut, readers will find complete instructions for prolonging the bloom for arrangements, wreaths, and bouquets.  
   Suzy Bales says “life is best lived in sync with the seasons” and takes this philosophy to heart in her newest book. In each season, fresh-from-the-garden arrangements celebrate the ever-changing landscape and feature unique combinations of flowers and foliage for floral creations in every style. An experienced speaker and author of 14 other gardening books, Suzy takes found objects, leaves of all colors, and the blooms of the season to put together amazingly simple and beautiful arrangements.  buying a term paper
