The last three months have sprinted by and I am just now starting to feel like I am coming out of the fog of hysteria trying to get the new flower farm infrastructure and plan to where I want it. Now that the deer fence is finally done the plants are having a good go at blooms. Lisianthus, Eucalyptus, Amaranth, Sunflowers, Cosmos, Celosia of every kind, Gypsophila, Zinnias, many Basil varieties are blooming strong! I’ve been able to spend a lot of time working on the perennial beds. It has me excited to see the beautiful perennials popping next season! I’ve put in tall Phlox, Lupine, Campanella, Echinacea, Daisies, Rudbeckia, Eryngium ,Yarrow, Hellebores , Peonies & Columbine. I’m still planting seedlings of other perennials but I don’t mention them until I know for sure they will make it here in this heat. I’ve got so many cool flower annuals started too! Snap dragons, Bells of Ireland, Bupleurum, Fever few, Sweet peas just to name a few!
The most exciting news is that my building that will house my shop & workshop area is being built in October… I can’t wait to move in there and out of the weather! Once it’s decorated and picture ready I’ll share! Workshop schedule to follow.
I wanted to say once again thank you for all of you who are supporting me! I’m excited to have florists and designers interested in my flowers & the special neighbors who have reached out for bouquets have made the last 3 months worth the struggles. Even just kind words from some of you have gotten me farther ahead by boosting my energy. My hard work is making the dream come true (again) but it can’t happen without people understanding the value of local flowers & wanting chemical free , specialty cut flowers that have been fussed over 🥰 I hope you know you’ve touched me.
