I don’t think it’s any secret, but flowers really had a moment in 2014.  From peonies to succulents, it seemed like beautiful florals and plants were all over social media… and I loved it! It’s been a blast to be able to share my passion for flowers on 5th & Hollyhock and also on our Instagram and Pinterest.  Since a large portion of my day is spent staring at flowers and with 2014 coming to a close, I thought it’d be fun to share my top five floral moments of this year. There’s also a free desktop wallpaper for you all to download as a little holiday gift from me to you! Have a safe and happy holidays and I hope you enjoy reading this year’s top floral moments:

This and other photos from Japanese artist Azuma Makoto’s artistic endeavor “EXOBIOTANICA” made the rounds on Pinterest and with good reason! They’re incredible!

Rifle Paper Co. had many amazing moments in 2014 as every product they released was constantly shared, liked, and tweeted. I particularly loved this bag that Anna Rifle herself hand-painted.
