Dreamy David Austin Roses: A Flower Arrangement

This year has been a really great season for roses here in my garden. Even though they were a little bit late to arrive, they've been blooming like crazy. Most of this, I can attribute to the weather, but I did seem to do a very good job of pruning this year. I have such…

Light Apricot Chantilly Snapdragons and Feverfew: The Perfect Match

I've been playing with arranging these gorgeous light apricot chantilly snapdragons all this week. The bright, peachy stems are so lovely alone - but work exceptionally well with nearly every other flower that I'm able to combine them with in a vase. However, one of my absolute favorite combinations involves the single feverfew. Let's take…

My Favorite Arrangement of the Season, Thus Far…

Planting Hardy Annual Flowers from Seed into the Hoop House – Progress – Cut Flower Farm

I feel like I've been saying it for months now, but I'm so far behind. In a perfect world, the hoophouse would have been planted and ready for winter back in October. Between the weather and the busy thanksgiving holiday - it just didn't happen. I was finally able to get things situated last weekend.…
