Give Us Pleasure in our Flowers Today
Two thoughts come to mind with I look at these two photos. First Pinterest is full of great ideas on how to make cute arrangements for flowers. I loved the hanging mason jars idea so I hung these two jars at our market today. Many people commented how clever and that they should do that for their wedding or event. It helped sell the beautiful narcissus we had available. It gives me much pleasure to see what other are doing with their flowers and how creative they are.
Second, thank you to Erin Benzakein of Floret Flower Farm, for writing an article in Growing For Market, that made suggestions on which daffodils and narcissus we should grow. The choices you presented were just great, performed well and the fragrance is heavenly. Our customers have been very pleased!
And finally Callie our Flower Dog has grown into a terrific dog. She is almost two years, is a great watch dog, and keeps the deer away from our flowers as best as she can. She can catch potato chips and pancakes in mid-air and will follow you anywhere for string cheese. She usually doesn't like her picture taken, but I had cheese in my hand.
"Oh, give us pleasure in the flowers today; And give us not to think so far away As the uncertain harvest; keep us here All simply in the springing of the year." -- Robert Frost
