Just Around The Corner

Written by
It’s hard to believe, actually it’s nearly impossible to wrap my mind around the fact that this bounty will be coming out of our garden in a little over a month. 5 short weeks!
These photos were taken last March and nearly all of the flowers in them were harvested from our property.
After a winter of grey drizzle and dark days it’s hard to believe that once again our space will be brimming with life.
While just the sight of these flowers makes me want to leap ahead in time and be firmly planted in spring, with the flowers comes a whole lot of w o r k.
So rather than being impatient, I am going to consciously savor every last drop of this downtime because just around the corner, everything is about to change.


This bridal bouquet includes: antique fragrant Narcissus (the name has escaped me) Tulips Apricot Parrot and Mt. Tacoma, Lonicera tartarica,Friteleria assyriaca,Erythronium Pagoda,Rosemary Arp.

    You are so lucky to live in that growing climate!! Argh, it's such a struggle to find that many types of flowers growing in TX in one season :). I think we just need more ferociously talented growers like you.
