I found these photos on a rogue camera card tucked into a crevice of the abyss that is my suitcase. They're from our Melbourne Slow Living workshop in September, taken at Butterland in Newstead. Butterland is a heritage-listed WWII era butter factory, venue rental, and home of florist Katie Marx and furniture designer Greg Hatton. They are expert foragers. One of our favorite moments in the workshop was when Katie demonstrated how to make a colossal bouquet from foraged wattle and eucalyptus (so Australian, hey?!). Here in the Northern Hemisphere we are just now entering the belly of Winter, but looking at these photos reminds me that Spring is just off stage right, crouching, waiting in the wings.
