I am a florist in Rocky River, Ohio. I started writing this blog to share pictures of my flowers. Like many flower shop owners, I have an interest in a lot of things other than flowers.
I love to bake and sew. I am passionate about running and have done several marathons (including the original course in Greece from Marathon to Athens.) I enjoy bicycling, cross-country skiing and ice skating. I’ve been traveling since I was 16. I have found a new interest in photography and Photoshop. I am a Photo Stylist. I do hand and machine embroidery, create and digitize my own designs. I quilt. I’ve published a book.
I’ve taken numerous classes; ballet, tap, watercolor, cake decorating, snowshoe, boomerang, pantomime, sewing and a gazillion floral design classes.
I am a daughter, sister, aunt, cousin and friend.
And, I am a blogger.
I started blogging a few years ago and created a “lifestyle” blog.(zinniabuzz.wordpress.com) That blog included recipes, crafts and sewing projects. When I opened my flower shop I didn’t have time to work on two blogs, buy flowers, clean flowers, deliver flowers and cook and clean and everything else that happens in a day. So, while I think someday I will add to my other blog again, I am usually busy taking pictures of fresh flowers for my Fiori della Vita blog.
I hope you enjoy my photos, learn about unusual flowers, are inspired, get creative, have fun with new ideas and view my site often.
Thanks for visiting,
Catherine A. Jones
