Procession of the Precious Wood of the Life-giving Cross of the Lord

Not familiar with this feast day? Check it out here.
As I mentioned earlier, I was working on the base for the flowers for the cross when I met with an inconvenient accident.
The stiff foam was carved away from a traced cross in the center.  The wet foam is then placed in the space vacated and the cross is thus elevated above the wet. 
The rest is simple: red carnations surrounding the cross, baby’s breath outlining it and then ferns to finish it off.
The cross you see was hand-carved by a parishioner who has also carved many other things for the church.  He does beautiful work.
I’ve done this for the cross on other feast days as well.
[Normally I wouldn’t be doing the flowers but because of travel and a family member’s death, it was necessary to substitute for the regular flower-arrangers.]
