Victoria florist and gardener Clare Monica Day knows how to work her green thumb.
In paintings from the Renaissance, flowers were depicted as wild and occasionally decayed, a far cry from the industrially farmed blooms commonplace today. Master gardener and floral designer Clare Monica Day seeks a return to the unruly. Through her 12-acre Red Damsel Farm, Day cultivates organic cut flowers for singular arrangements that spill out of their confines asymmetrically, as though very much alive. For her admirers, such as the editors of Martha Stewart Weddings and her 10,000-plus followers on Instagram, Day offers instructional classes from her on-site studio as well as online through her latest venture, Garden to Vase—a Renaissance woman for our digital age.
