I’m juggling a dozen different projects as we enter the last big push before the season comes to a close. The above photo was captured by Moonflower Design as we were hustling to harvest garden roses and dahlias for our last workshop of the season, which just wrapped up last week. I haven’t even begun to filter through the hundreds of beautiful shots from the workshop, but hope to share exciting workshop details soon. The frenetic pace of fall will soon start to slow. I hope. Chris and I have been counting down the days until we get to jailbreak and head to New England for a little getaway. I’m definitely ready for a little down time.
In the meantime, I hope you’ll keep posting and tagging your photos using the #seasonalfloweralliance hashtag over on Instagram. I just love seeing the beauty that you are cultivating and creating across the country and beyond.
I particularly love the caption for the following submission, as it perfectly captures why the seasonal flower movement is so dang special:

Growing my own flowers has given me many things, and I am proud to be apart of the local flower movement. I have discovered that my arrangements and bridal bouquets are more sincere, more personal with my own flowers. I feel like I'm giving little pieces of my life in them – remembering when I seeded those cosmos, when the wind almost took out those dahlias, how my kids helped me water the zinnias. Nothing about them feels store-bought, mass-produced… They're real flowers with a real story.
