I love how each phase and season in the garden is defined by color. In March you rarely see anything blooming that isn’t a shade of yellow. Late summer ushers in bold, vibrant tones that communicate the heat and intensity of the season. In the fall, everything is rusty and golden as it fades away towards winter.
Right now everywhere I look I see purple. It’s the perfect color to pair with the vibrant new growth green that is spilling from every corner of our garden, especially the hedgerows.
These little bouquets were for our lovely, devoted Seattle flower subscription members. Of all the different routes our flowers take to their final destination, this group is my absolute favorite. Always up for anything, they embrace the ebb and flow of what the garden has to offer with such enthusiasm and generosity every week.
The rain has returned a little but this time I am glad it is here. The newly planted Dahlias will enjoy the moisture and it will give me the chance to sow another HUGE batch of seedlings and organize the next phase of planting.
I wish you all a joy filled week from the land of purple!
