A dear friend made this lovely autumn bouqet for the Happy Birthday party on Sunday. She has a genius for artfully creating floral arrangements--here are just pieces of lamb's ear, juniper, and nandina with berries. I received many compliments for it and had to point people to the actual creator. This friend also does such beautiful gift wrapping you feel like a vandal opening your present, is a superb cook, and always presents her culinary creations beautifully, even when you just drop by for a casual tea. Always a pleasure.
