While in my garden early this morning gathering the last of the drying hydrangeas, I stumbled upon a little surprise. I couldn't believe my garden blessed me with a final gift..... these last two lovely huge zucchinis. I got such a kick out of it. It's almost Thanksgiving, and here in New York, I am still gathering a harvest! Just yesterday, I spoke of my sleeping garden all tucked in for the winter.
In the spirit of the season, I think I will bake up several zucchini breads, wrap them in brown parchment paper tied with some raffia ribbons and deliver them to some of my friends and neighbors in Thanksgiving for their friendship.
My passion for flowers began as a little girl when my grandmother inspired me to plant my first flower garden. I remember her growing breathtaking zinnias in huge old tomato cans sitting on her porch. She didn't have money for decorative planters, so she just used her imagination. I would love to have those old vintage cans with zinnias in glorious colors spilling from them. That passion for flowers and designing with them has followed me my entire life, and eventually was the inspiration behind starting my own business and opening a flower shop 10 years ago when Meadowsweet was born. Today, my days are spent creating beautiful floral arrangements and wreaths, and helping others beautify their homes on the North Shore of Long Island where I live
