“I guess you could say I am like a flower spy. I like to plant myself in nature wherever I go, scouting and identifying unusual plants, foraging them whenever possible, taking my finds home to see how I can best showcase them in my designs.” –Carole A. Langrall
Carole A. Langrall, owner of A Garden of Earthly Delights, floral studio, has a passion for everything that grows in the wild, from the woods and urban alleys of the east to the deserts and mountains of the west. After she got her start in the floral industry in the early 90’s working with Colombian flower growers, she decided to open her own floral events business in Maryland where she could combine her love for foraging with her love of flowers. The result became a successful studio that garnered much media attention, including awards from the Baltimore City Paper and Baltimore Magazine and seasonal features on WBAL-TV 11 and WBFF-FOX 45.
In 2010, Carole became a Master Gardener in New Mexico and opened a floral studio in Santa Fe, adding plantscaping and xeriscaping to her design resume. Her two flower blogs, International Flower Spy and Neglected Beauty, caught the attention of a local writer and in 2012, she was asked to write a monthly column for the Santa Fe New Mexican newspaper called “Santa Fe in Bloom,” which she continues to write today. After moving back to the east coast, she got her second certification as a Baltimore City Master Gardener and is currently the Coordinator for the Charm City Farm & Garden Tour, an event that supports and promotes Baltimore City’s growing garden and farm movement.
Carole has studio spaces in Baltimore, MD and Santa Fe, NM. She is available for lectures and classes in addition to destination events.
