Katherine Anderson, our flower columnist, visited Morocco for her 40th birthday and shares with us her beautiful photographs of the colors and landscape that she saw on her trip, as well as three flower arrangements that she created using Morocco as inspiration.
This past spring, my husband and I drove in a semi-circle, from Fez, the medieval capital of Morocco, out to the Sahara Desert, and then back toward Marrakech. It was a 40th birthday trip (mine) and I found what I was looking for: a country saturated on so many levels with color, design, sunshine, and fragrant food.
In this month's column I put together a slide show of photographs from my trip, as well as some photographs of a few different flower arrangements that I put together inspired by the colors of Morocco.
