Ron Morgan

If you have never been to Ron Morgan's store Loot in Lafayette, CA give yourself a treat and go. Immediately. And if you have a Monday morning free, sign up for one of his classes. His demonstrations are inspiring, he makes half a dozen very different arrangements in about an hour and he is hysterically funny. My current favorite line - "Just because it has a hole in it doesn't mean it was made to hold flowers." He tells of going to speak at a very posh garden club where the ladies brought their own vases, and he was to show them what to do with them. An older woman in a proper suit with proper low-heeled pumps came up and said "Oh, Mr Morgan, this compote has been in my family for generations. What should I do with it?"
Ron said "Do yourself a favor honey. Just drop it and break it right now. That is the ugliest thing I have ever seen." And she did.
