Vegetative Spring Design


I love springtime.  I love the longer days and the warming temperatures.  But, most of all I love the flowers, foliages and budding branches that are unique to the spring season. For this slide show we asked David Kesler AIFD to create a design in the vegetative style.  This style of design requires a naturalistic composition in which plant materials are positioned as they would grow in nature.  This is David's favorite design style and his finished design is spectacular.
