Innovative Arrangements For 52 consecutive weeks, horticultural enthusiast Debra Prinzing challenged herself to create a seasonal bouquet using only local ingredients. She gathered flowers, leaves, branches and seedpods from her own garden, from friends’ gardens, and from the meadows and fields of her favorite flower farms. The result: “Slow Flowers,” a beautifully photographed book celebrating each season’s unique character with fresh blooms, ornamental twigs, colorful foliage and other gifts from nature. “My goal is to inspire others to create personal bouquets with what’s at hand, if only they begin to see what’s around them with new eyes,” said Prinzing, who photographed each bouquet for the book, which offers step-bystep design instructions and an ingredient list. debraprinzing.com.
