#AYearInFlowers Week 16

Written by

I had grand plans of making a beautiful pastel bouquet for my #AYearInFlowers post this week, but after a weekend full of planning and a super busy start to the week, I only got as far as harvesting these beautiful pastel anemones.

My hope is to make an actual arrangement each week for this project, but Chris reminded me that done is better than perfect. So, here are photos of anemones blooming in my hoop house in Skagit Valley Washington this week.

#AYearInFlowers is a community-driven project to share what is blooming in your garden or in your area.

Each week on the Floret Blog I’m sharing a bouquet or snippets from my garden and also featuring a few community submissions from Facebook and Instagram. Information on how to participate is posted below. I’d love to see what is in bloom near you!

How to participate in #AYearInFlowers

1) Capture. 

Take a photo of flowers that are in season in your area, whether it is a fistful of flowers from your backyard or a bouquet from your local farmers market.

2) Post. 

On Instagram, upload your photo and tag it with #AYearInFlowers. 

On Facebook, upload your photo as a comment under my weekly post. 

3) Share. 

In your photo caption, please share what flowers are featured (if you know them) along with your location and date. Bonus points for listing your USDA hardiness zone and week number (i.e. #week16flowers)

Week numbers are commonly used in the floriculture industry and are standardized across the years. Even though we’re entering the fourth week of the #AYearInFlowers project, this is the 16th week of the year.

By using the #week16flowers hashtag on Instagram, you can sort photos by what’s in bloom this week all around the world. In addition, week numbers allow you to compare what’s blooming in your own garden from year to year.

On Monday, I’ll be posting my week 17 flowers to social media. If you’re participating on Instagram, please add the #week17flowers and#AYearInFlowers hashtags to your caption.

Here are a few submissions posted over the past week:

Today we picked the last of the Tulips. A little bit wind and rain bashed but still SO pretty. #ayearinflowers #week16flowers #zone8 #cornwallgrown
