Just north of San Francisco in the Golden Gate National Recreation Area, you will find the Headlands Center for the Arts.  Why is this one of our favorite places?  The Headlands has both public programs and artist residencies that work to “build understanding and appreciation for the role of art in society.” As if that was not enough the Headlands is housed in nine historic, 1907-era military buildings that have been renovated through commissions to artists such as Ann Hamilton and David Ireland.  Truth be told, we are smitten and this is one of our favorite places to adorn with local botanicals.

Hand-Dyed in the Headlands

Last weekend,  we filled blue, hand-dyed ball jars with giant peachy-orange ranuculas and anenomes from San Diego and sweet peas from our San Francisco lot garden and brought them up to the Headlands for a really special winter wedding.

“Hand-dyed,”you ask?  Yes indeed.  You can learn more about it here and while we admit that the process can be time-consuming, the results are ever so pretty and perfect for showcasing your fresh spring blossoms.
