Millbrook: part two

IMG_3479
I must confess, my head is miles from Millbrook. I've spent the past week and a half soaking up sun in southern Florida after making flowers for a party in West Palm Beach hosted by the very same bride who brought us to Millbrook in the first place. But again we will suspend time and space to have a bit of fall dreaming.
IMG_3395IMG_3334IMG_3447IMG_3341IMG_3370IMG_3393IMG_3372IMG_3461To get to this little spot in the woods, we had to drive down the most precariously rocky, cliff-side, one lane path (to call it a road would be misleading). With foamy waterfalls on the left, mossy boulders on the right and swirling yellow leaves all around- it was textbook October. Sun-shiny, nippy, see your breath but forget the gloves October. To work outside in places like this, making meaningful things for people that appreciate them, and to call that work, is overwhelming.

  3. Such a wonderful visual... a car load of gorgeous flowers driving ever so carefully up a winding road to a special destination in what sounds like stunning scenery. Beautiful! The word "work" doesn't seem like it suffices.

  8. Perfection. Like a fairytale in the woods. The flowers are breathtaking, but the trees 'growing' up the tentpoles, and the amazing light and leafy shadows on the canvas make the hairs on the back of my neck stand up, just beautiful. x

  12. It is so exciting to see your work, Amy! How wonderful to find "work" that feels like a gift to do, and that is also most certainly a gift to those you do it for. If that makes sense. :) Its a beautiful thing (if not well articulated)!

  28. I just stumbled upon your blog yesterday. I'm in awe of your flowers and your photography - together, very Old Master. And then I scroll down to see this post - not only is my farm about five miles from this spot, but a dear friend was married in this very cabin two years ago. I'm passing on your name and blog info to a stylist friend of mine (who you may well already know). Thank you for sharing your beautiful work here...
