Familiar and foreign floral arrangement.

In the garden.
Ladies afternoon tea.

Event planner's office.
The winter of 2012-13 seems to have taken a toll on the Ideas House.
For the first time in many visits neither the garage or the backyard shed were decorated and the absence of outdoor flowers and greenery was notable.
But the temp hit 74, the jacket was shed, and the car windows were down as we drove away from a pleasant afternoon diversion in the city.
