BEFORE AND AFTER
Hummer Heaven 

Fun fact about hummers:

Hummers are “new world” birds and are only found in the North and South America

Hummers can fly up to 34 MPH (54 KM/H)

Hummers can hover, fly forward, backward and UPSIDE DOWN!


The overall symbolism of the hummingbird is joy. In animal totems the hummingbird is a powerful symbol of life and joy, Because of their ability to hover hummers are often thought to be reminders that life is meant to be savored, their tireless activity symbolizes perseverance and because hummingbirds do not simply flap their wings up and down, but instead move them in the pattern of the infinity symbol, or a figure eight, they are often thought to symbolize eternity and everlasting life. The ancient Aztecs believe that the dearly departed souls return as hummingbirds and butterflies.

Before and After

Lavender Lust – 
I am drawn to intense colors therefore the winters in northern Minnesota can be quite uninspiring for me. I was in desperate need to create one winter so I bought a bouquet of flowers and misted them with water. It was bitter cold, 20 below zero, so the water froze on the flowers immediately encasing them in a frosted ice. I was utterly pleased not only with the result but the design as well. The meaning of the Peruvian Lily is friendship and devotion. Symmetry is another manifestation of the balance of Yin and Yang, of the unimpeded flow of ch'i.

The symbolic meanings also change with the color of the tulips. Variegated tulips mean "you have beautiful eyes."
