#AYearInFlowers Week 37

Written by

I’ve imagined our farm one day becoming a place for artists to come and connect with flowers and nature. For the first time this week I could feel it actually happening. At the time we took this shot, Ngoc Minh Ngo was making her way up and down the rows of dahlias with her camera and Christine Chitnis was snipping bundles of flowers to take their pictures.

A Year in Flowers Week 37

Pictured here: Dahlia Country Charm.

The goal of the #AYearInFlowers project is to highlight and celebrate what’s blooming in gardens across the globe each week.

How to participate in #AYearInFlowers

1) Capture. 

Take a photo of flowers that currently 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. Bonus points for listing your USDA hardiness zone and week number (i.e. #week37flowers) 

Here are a few submissions from this week:

A note about week numbers: week numbers are commonly used in the floriculture industry and are standardized across the years. This is the 37th week of the year.

By using the #week37flowers 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.

Next week, I’ll be posting my week 38 flowers to social media and also here on the blog along with a selection of other participants’ photos. If you’re participating on Instagram, please add the #week38flowers 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!
