It looks like we’re gonna go for another round of pictures without too many words today. I’d love to wax on about how magical life is, surrounded by flowers, happy children and small creature but I just can’t seem to find the words to say it. So, photos will have to do.
The past week has felt like we’re treading water in a churning ocean. Trying to catch up and keep up with the rapidly growing list has been, well, tough. I know we always catch up and everything will turn out in the end but gosh, it’s been hard to remember that.
Yesterday our Oaxacan angel returned! He spent the entire day planting lilies and got every last bulb in. 9 hours straight,2,800 lilies, what a guy! Having him back is the biggest gift of all!
I watched a wonderful interview with one of my favorite people, Me Ra Koh this morning. She is so dang inspiring! If you need a lift, check it out HERE. My favorite part was where she pointed out the term “starving artist”, for her, applies to not feeding her creative self but still expecting it to put out, produce, produce and make money. I loved hearing how unrealistic that is in the long run. My poor creative self hasn’t got any love or space in a very long time. Hopefully this weekend I can remedy that :)
Well, the sun is out and I have a million orders to fill before the van heads to the city this evening . I wish everyone a glorious weekend!!!! and I’ll see you on the other side.
For those that will ask. The white rectangle buckets are called Proconas and we get them from Patger. Also, we grow our tulips as annuals and during harvest cut off the bulbs and throw them away. This seems to break everyone’s heart but it’s how it’s done in the cut flower world.

These photos are breathtaking! The spring is a rush like no other. Thanks for all this beauty.
