I realize I have been in the school of 'bright, sunny and pop flower colors' thus far. That's not bad, as many of us seek flowers to get exactly that for our homes and spaces. But I am now very glad to have learned (and will continue to do so) about this other school - how to use subtler and more harmonizing color approach in floral work. It's a whole new world to me and one that I will investigate and explore with avid curiosity. Again, I find Aesme classes to offer something different, something fresh and with depth. It reminds me of those books I have next to my bed for months and years, as you tend to go back to them time and again. Thanks.
