finding my groove

Written by

The arrival of spring has me spinning in circles, trying to find my center just a bit. One day I felt on top of everything and the next a million blooming flowers threw off my groove. It feels like the first week of school. A whole lot of anticipation, nerves, overwhelm and excitement all wrapped up into one.

 The tulips have exploded in the greenhouse and boy what a stunning crop. Best to date!




I adore this whopping pink variety, Pink Impression. When fully open she’s watermelon pink with a big black throat. A real bell ringer!



This batch of beauty made its way to the city over the weekend and will be gracing tables in 3 states by Easter. I just love that our flowers bring joy to so many : )

    Beautiful. My tulips are coming off in the field, but they are so short in comparison. I am very envious, what a great job you do!

    I'd love to have that many, but oh the work, just lovely. How do you grow such beautiful tulips? I want to know your secret. Your tulips bring joy by just looking at the pictures of them.

    How many ways can I say "wow"! They are simply gorgeous. Wish I lived in your area so that I could have some.
