Inspired by Nature
Splints & Daisies
"When I was a little girl, I would go out into Nanny's garden, pick orange marigolds and pink snapdragons, mash them and mix them with water, then bottle the mixture up and give it to her as perfume."
Tara has been a long time flower lover and plant geek. Growing up she was a rambunctious toddler and decided to get a head start in the horticulture industry by eating her mothers house plants. This mostly resulted in the poison control center being called repeatedly, but also instilled in her the love of all things "green and growing". She has had her hands in the dirt and been playing with flowers her whole life. With an art background in her family, florals became her artistic expression.
Tara strive's to use only local blooms. During the growing season, she uses flowers from local farms, foraged finds, and blooms grown in her own cutting garden. Recently she embarked on the journey of growing heirloom mums, and will be expanding each year.
In her spare time, she enjoys nature even more by hiking and kayaking to her hearts content. Tara and her husband, Jason, are chipping away at sections of the Appalachian Trail! They live in Lancaster County with a sweet kitty, Petunia, and a Doodly Lab, Hazel Juniper.
