A week or more ago, I had tucked a few buckets of treasures away in the cooler with every intention of making something special out of them. But workshop prep, writing deadlines and meetings took center stage. I was finally able to take a little time away from the hustle and make this beauty. Bouquet includes: dahlias, garden roses, amaranth, digitalis, nicotianna, stock, clematis and varigated geranium.
Here are a few fun submissions that caught my attention on Instagram last week:

If you are just now learning about the Seasonal Flower Alliance, here’s a quick recap of how to participate:
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). Bonus points for listing your location and/or USDA hardiness zone!
It’s a fun way to see and celebrate seasonal flowers!
