With the heat wave here on the East Coast I thought it a good time to post pictures from a spring trip to the California desert with one of the coolest florists I know. Working with Lewis Miller Design in Palm Springs at the beautiful Smoke Tree Ranch (hotel cottage accommodations) felt more like a vacation than real work. The orange trees were in bloom and their sweet scent wafted through the air as we worked outside under a canopy in the warm desert air. The colors of the desert sky and flora greeted us morning, noon and night. The sounds of the desert in their rustling, chirping tranquility were a welcome break from the sounds of the city. And the colors Lewis chose married the colors of the desert perfectly. Oh how I wish to be back!
