For my #AYearInFlowers bouquet this week, I paired peachy/coral Ranunculus from the La Belle Pastel Mix with Pansy Rococo Frill Mix and Nature Antique Shades and tucked in a few sweet stems of wild Bleeding Hearts, Lilacs, Blueberry flowers, Heuchera Peach Flambé leaves and Aquilegia Double Pleat Blackberry.
#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
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.
On Instagram, upload your photo and tag it with #AYearInFlowers.
On Facebook, upload your photo as a comment under my weekly post.
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. #week20flowers)
Week numbers are commonly used in the floriculture industry and are standardized across the years. Even though we’ve been doing #AYearInFlowers posts for a few weeks now, this is the 19th week of the year.
By using the #week19flowers 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.
Early next week, I’ll be posting my week 20 flowers to social media. If you’re participating on Instagram, please add the #week20flowers and#AYearInFlowers hashtags to your caption.
Here are a few submissions posted over the past week:

You see that halo on her head too? Farm Grammy calls the light right before the sun goes down, and before it comes up, the halo. And as #flowerfarmers and #flowerfarmhers we often spend halo to halo at work on the farm. Cheers to beautiful this bounty! #columbine #ayearinflowers #week19flowers
