What is one thing you did for yourself this summer?

Working on flower arrangements; it is therapeutic and meditative. I have been doing it with my mom since I was little. My children laugh at me because I get completely engrossed.

What do you use to create your flower arrangements?

Garden flowers — lilies, marigolds, dahlias — and weeds… everything natural can look incredibly beautiful. I love finding things that weren’t intentional and making them work.

How do you use these arrangements around your home?

To brighten up any room and to bring nature indoors.
