Some days, I feel completely defeated when it comes to flower “farming”. By the time summer finally arrives, it’s a constant battle with the weeds and with the mosquitoes. Emphasis on the mosquitoes. When I headed out into the garden this particular day, I knew that I was in for a race against the rain. Unfortunately, the rain started pouring almost as soon as I snipped the first flower stem.
I always look forward to these blooms. While I’ve heard that feverfew are perennial, I usually just pull them up and grow them as hardy annuals again the next growing season. I would love to just leave them in place, but there is so little space in my yard I have to make sure to make the most of it.
The very first of the larkspur flowers have also started to bloom. It always seems like the darkest colors started to open up first. I’m not sure why that is, but I’ll just have to wait patiently until the pinks and whites start blooming.
Last, but certainly not least, I added tons of “wrinkled crinkled cress”. The seed pods of the cress plants are so light and airy. They definitely can add much needed texture to our cut flower arrangement. Thanks for reading!
