This weekend Chris and I hopped a plane and headed for Blanco TX. Our destination was Texas Specialty Cut Flowers, the farm of two of the most badass growers out there, Pamela and Frank Arnosky. I think I may be the Arnosky’s biggest fan and was actually a little nervous that I would freak them out with my overwhelming excitement! It was REALLY hard to act calm ; )
On our flight home, Chris and I were looking through all of the photos from the trip and couldn’t stop laughing. There were SO MANY photos of me totally wigging out with joy!!!
Since I’m saving all of the gorgeous farm tour photos for the April issue of Growing For Market, I thought I’d share of these hysterical outtakes from our flower filled weekend.
My flower farming heros! Lynn Byczinski, author of The Flower Farmer & editor of Growing For Market and Frank and Pamela Arnosky. Eeek!
Frank signing my copy of We’re Gonna Be Rich, their wonderful book.
I think I was whispering, “Holy shit, can you believe we’re actually here!!?!? We’re at the Arnosky’s farm!!”
Surprise, surprise, Alice from Bluebird Meadows in NC was there! What a treasure! If you don’t follow her blog, start now.
Coveting their ranunculus. Coral….sigh…. my favorite color.
Talking with a board member about the 2014 Association of Specialty Cut Flowers national conference. My suggestion..!? That Jennie Love and I co-teach a flower arranging/wedding workshop geared for growers! If you agree, let them know. [email protected]
