Q & A

Q & A with Jonathan Sloane

Since seeing is believeing when it comes to our silk floral designs, photography is one of the most important investments we make on a seasonal basis.  Not only do the pictures appear on our website but also in printed catalogs that we send to our retail and design clients.  Our photography is so well edited that even shelter magazines don’t hesitate to use the images in their editorials.  And we are grateful to Norwalk-based photographer Jonathan Sloane for helping our designs look “un-real”!

Leaves by Jonathan Sloane

Leaves by Jonathan Sloane

In Autumn when the trees are brown
The little leaves come tumbling down
They do not make the slightest sound
But lie so quietly on the ground
Until the wind comes puffing by
And blows them off towards the sky.

The winds will blow their own freshness into you,
and the storms their energy,
while cares will drop away from you
like the leaves of Autumn.

John Muir (1838 – 1914)
