4638627227_f60437f7b6   Have you visited the Saipua Flickr stream lately?  These NYC flower girls create the most delicious combinations, like Dutch flower paintings that are not at all pretentious or stuffy.

If you follow the history of floristry (pretty sure I am alone here!), you might remember Madderlake (Check out their books), a ground breaking florist from the 1970's who made use of dandelions, poppies, geraniums, and "weeds" and used them in unconventional ways. Saipua has a very similar style to Madderlake!
