The Sweet Pea Festival in Bozeman, Montana, begins this Friday and features live music, a beer and wine garden, about 100 craft vendors, and a flower show.
Katalin Green, a local florist, kicked off her own flower show this evening with an extravagant headdress she designed. Prominently seated at Plonk, the wine bar on Main street, where she is also the florist, Katalin was the center of attention. When I asked Katalin the significance of her fabulous headdress, she said, "Sweet Pea is a celebration of flowers, and I'm celebrating flowers!"
To support the dozens of fresh flowers she was wearing on her head, the florist started with a metal armature, added chicken wire, and then the cascade of dazzling, colorful flowers. What a wonderfully enthusiastic and original response to Sweet Pea. Good for you, Katalin!
