Challenging Flowers

Tonight was the last class of my level one floral design program where we learned how to make a spiral hand tied bouquet. It was extremely challenging. It is so amazing to be doing something that I love but is difficult to learn.

Therein lies the secret to enjoying life. Taking on challenges that stimulate you and stretch you and allow you to learn and grow. While I was struggling to create my spiral I was totally engrossed in the task at hand and all other thoughts and worries disappeared.

Then at the end there is the satisfaction of learning a new skill. I will certainly need more practice at spiral bouquets, but they are lovely to look at and great as hostess gifts.
