Four days of spring!
Each year I look forward to the arrival of spring at the Milwaukee Art Museum where flowers are the art. ‘Art In Bloom’ is the museum’s four day event that fills each room with the scent & colors of spring.
Art in Bloom pairs one piece of incredible art to a talented floral designer or group. It’s quite an honor among florists, garden centers and garden clubs to be selected as a designer for this event.
The challenge of the day: deciding which arrangement receives my “people’s choice” vote.
I found it difficult to walk away from this arrangement! It was fascinating from all sides.
Elegant in simplicity.
Three panels of abstract flowers – an interpretation of
Yellow Guitar and Blue Vase.
Floral humor: grilled cheese & tomato soup
Simple, stunning, creative.
Vision, skill, artistic creativity.
Art in Bloom – always worth the trip.

I just can’t stop!
I wanted to climb each layer of the pink peony petals and dive into the center of the white peony and swim. It looked like it might be whipped cream lightness (the way I think jumping onto the tops of the clouds from an airplane would be). (I’m the only person who thinks that might be fun…?)
When I see a blossom so beautiful in nature, I just can’t stop myself from shooting endlessly. The ones with imperfect petals stand proud of their uniqueness. They’re my favorite. Perhaps if I can hold it still for a moment, it could last forever.
Nature. Perfect. Gorgeous.
