Susan Bandor, Owner

I am a creative soul, and I have always had this inner necessity to connect with nature. My grandmother’s love for flower gardens and art drove my need to cultivate beauty on canvas and in my own gardens.  This creative drive, that has traveled through generations, has provided a structured balance and refuge for me, especially when my career as a critical care nurse emptied me emotionally, spiritually, and physically.  The rhythms of nature and its beauty provided calm and healing.

My husband Tom and I are now using our deep love for the land to share our passion of honoring creation. Growing flowers, herbs and botanicals that are rich in color and textures, we gather the beauty that nature offers us in all of its seasons. Together, we create gorgeous, unique arrangements that are locally harvested, fresh, and free from the confines of tradition. From our gardens to our design studio and art work, we hope to inspire you with our passion for the creative at Black Creek Ridge.

Beauty and Creativity

The right floral arrangement can add a splash of color and energy exactly when and where it is needed. We hand-harvest and arrange our flowers with delicacy and creativity into works of art to reflect the season or event. We handcraft wedding bouquets, corsages, and boutonnieres and create stylish arrangements for garlands, wreaths, and centerpieces. Whatever your vision, we are happy to create something perfect to fit your event or occasion.
