This month I was fortunate to make it to Petaluma for a vintage/heirloom rose workshop with the geniuses of Little Flower School at the amazing Garden Valley Ranch. These roses have a very short shelf life so we don’t see much of them at the LA Flower Mart. I have grown numb to the pallets of mass produced Ecuadorian roses, all uniform and smashed into the cardboard packaging, with rarely a scent of real roses. This workshop and garden tour allowed me to fall in love with roses all over again. I fell hard. I can order them directly from GVR if you want them for your event. And they are not camera shy.
