A Year in Flowers

A Year in Flowers Week 23

The goal of this community-driven project is to highlight what’s blooming in gardens across the globe each week.

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. #week24flowers) 

Here are a few submissions posted over the past week:

Foxglove will forever be one of my favorites! Perhaps it is its poisonous, heart-stopping properties that so intrigue me 😬

From Zone 7a in Tennessee: White oakleaf hydrangea, blue Nikko hydrangea, Classic Magic bachelor buttons, blueberry foliage, hydrangea foliage, Queen Anne’s Lace and Pope John Paul II rose. Submitted on Facebook by Stacey Lyn Cannon

A note about week numbers: 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 while now, this is the 23rd week of the year.

By using the #week23flowers 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 24 flowers to social media. If you’re participating on Instagram, please add the #week24flowers and #AYearInFlowers hashtags to your caption. Be sure to also include your zone and where you’re located in the caption.

Thanks for playing along!
