August abundance. It’s that time of year when the flowers are going strong, the days are still long, yet I wish I had just one more hour to harvest it all, document it all, and savor it all.
At the end of last week, I walked up and down the long rows of our flower field in order to pick the very best of what was in bloom to incorporate into a super-cute couple’s weekend wedding. The bouquets I created overflowed with dahlias, lisianthus, ammi, cosmos, delphiniums garden roses and other beauties in blush hues; but I think the star of the bouquet were all the sweet little scabiosa-flowered zinnias–I just adore these little blooms!
Walking through flower fields and enjoying the abundance August has to offer is a theme that carries through all of this week’s Seasonal Flower Alliance featured submissions.
Wouldn’t you love to wade through all these flowers?
A big thanks to all of you who have participated in the Seasonal Flower Alliance so far this season. I love scrolling through the feed to see what you are harvesting, arranging, selling and just enjoying!
If you haven’t shared a photo yet, what’s holding you back? I’d love to see what’s in bloom in your part of the world. Participating is super simple. Here’s a quick summary of how to play along:
1) Snap. Take a photo of flowers that are in season in your area, whether it is a fistful of blooms from your garden or a vase full of flowers from your local farmers market.
2) Tag. Upload your photo to Instagram with the hashtag #SeasonalFlowerAlliance.
3) Share. In your photo caption, please share what flower varieties are featured (if you know them) along with your location and/or USDA hardiness zone.
It’s a fun way to see what’s in season both here and abroad!
If you aren’t on Instagram, but want to see what others are sharing, here’s a collage of the latest posts:
