so much

Written by

so much beauty in and from the garden these days.
sometimes i can hardly believe my luck, to be surrounded by so much magic, day in and day out.
other moments i feel completely overwhelmed and want to retreat to the ocean or forest, anywhere quiet and away from here.

our days are oh so full.
we rise with the sun and work late into the night.
so many flowers being sent out into the world.
when i get present to this fact it leaves me feeling so satisfied and so full.
i think of each bloom like a magical little orb of light, floating out into the world and transforming everyone in its wake.

baby chicks seem to be hatching on a regular basis.
their scratching and peeping is a welcome sound around the garden and workspace.
so much life everywhere i turn.
so much to take in and be thankful for!

    Love your dahlias, i'd love creating with them… to bad i'm so far away. Would you sell me some bulbs? :o)

    Pretty soon it will be time to scout the hedges and woods for brambles, autumn leaves, cat tails, Mother Nature in her gardens! Beautiful arrangements!

    Love the dahlias. So glad there are still farms like yours in the US, that everything is flown up from South America.

    You say 'sometimes I can hardly believe my luck' … well Erin, I'm here to tell you, it ain't luck! You and your family have planned and worked hard to get where you are today. Blessings to you all.

    Hey I love your blog! It has inspired me to want to be a cut flower farmer when I grow up! I'm fifteen years old now and homeschooled, and I was born with a green thumb from my father, do you recommend any classes to take for college or any tips for future reference for becomming a flower farmer? If so please e-mail me back.
