old tricks

It's true.
You can teach an old dog new tricks.

No, I'm not an "old dog" by any means....

But in the floral industry, I would certainly be considered an "old timer"...I've been working in the industry for over 40 years, so I passed the "rule of 90" a   L O N G   time ago! 

I have learned the long standing, tried and true methods of creating intricate designs from seasoned veterans, the methods that are still used by florists today.

But there is this thing called progress.

The floral industry is no exception...and it has made huge advances in technology over the last decade.  Good changes. 
They have made it possible to create things that are beyond your imagination!
They have made things easier, less time consuming, stronger, and opened up a whole new world of design....IF you are willing to learn about the new techniques, new products, and new ideas. 

I'll be making a another trip to the big city this weekend for the third time in as many months to learn new design techniques...with another session scheduled the following weekend. 
I've been amazed at the possibilities that have been presented to me thus far!

Yes, this "old dog" can learn new tricks! 
The old brain still works...and I am loving it!
