Beyond The Garden Gate

Beyond The Garden Gate - Clara PutlitzBeyond The Garden Gate.  I've known so few, truly creative people in my life that when I encounter one, I'm intrigued and I want to know more about them.  Clara Putlitz is one of those people.  Clara is the Proprietor of a lovely florist business located in the quaint town of Grants Pass, Oregon.  The name of her business, Beyond The Garden Gate, is not only inviting, but thought-provoking.  Who is this mysterious flower lady and what lies beyond her garden gate?

I stumbled upon Clara's ingenuity purely by accident 7 years ago, when I saw one of her creations delivered to my RE/MAX office.  I was stunned by the natural beauty of the arrangement... it was truly a work of art.  I've been on the giving and receiving end of flowers for most of my life... and I've never seen anything that compared to Clara's artistic flare in flower arrangements.  I just had to know this woman!

I have a great appreciation for right-side creative brain thinking people... their artistic souls deviate outside the lines where most of us rarely dare to go. They see things we don't see and they have the unique ability to assemble several working parts, sometimes in disorderly fashion, creating a work of art which can be appreciated by all, including left-side logical brain thinkers like me.

Clara stopped by my office today with a very special delivery from beyond her garden gate.  My eyes were in wonder and my senses were engaged from her whimiscial and lovely arrangement. Clara is special and so are her flowers! Thank you dear lady for making my day so wonderful... and a special thanks to the thoughtful person who sent them ;)  The day is always brighter when flowers fill the room... from Beyond The Garden Gate.

Hi Mel -

Obviously Clara is a very talented lady that has touched your life.  I really like the name of Clara's shop Beyond The Garden just sounds like a cool place. 

Best regards from the Q

Mel - back in the saddle again playing catch up in Active Rain. So happy to see this featured. It's a lovely post on a variety of levels. Clara seems quite magical, as is the name of her shop and her creations. Of course, YOU would recognize this in her. I love your heart - keep it up.

Absolutely beautiful, Mel.  I am a gardener too, but when it comes to doing arrangements, my daughter-in-law Jamie has that same right brain creativity and has made some beautiful arrangements for me for events I have had.   I would love to have more of a right brain. What a treasure Clara is!
