We are swimming in flowers. With record heat and no rain in sight, the field has burst into full rolling bloom almost overnight. Things that typically come on much slower have come and almost gone already. It feels and is starting to look like August and we’re only at the tailed of June. Geeze.
The snapdragons have exploded, produced a bumper crop and we’ll likely be picking the last of them by the weekend. Sweet peas which can normally stretch until mid-late July are already starting to get short stems due to the relentless heat. It’s a strange year and we’re all just along for the ride. It’s pointless to fight it. All we can do is water round the clock and hope for the best.
But, we’ve been out shooting before sunrise and until dark most days, trying to capture every last drop for both the book and a very special project we’re working on that I will share as we get closer to fall. All I can say is you’re going to love it, and I can’t wait to show it to you!
