About Me

Fiori_della_Vita_4780

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.

That's me in my shp

That’s me in my shop

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

  1. May I please copy and print one of your beautiful photos of flowers to replace a tired print in my greatgrandmothers bedroom. She will be 85 on the 17th April 2015, has been confined to a wheelchair for the last 2 years and just LOVES flowers.

    freshflowers-0131 is the most beautiful bouquet and I think she would love seeing it every day 🙂

    I understand there may be a copyright fee involved.

    Yours sincerely, Kylie Rogers – New Zealand

    • Kylie, Thank you for the compliment and thanks for inquiring before copying. Feel free, and no copyright fee. All the best to your Great Grandmother.
