The sunrises and sunsets have been spectacular--unfortunately due to the fires burning all around us. As I drive east and west, it is very apparent that the entire area is a tinder box just waiting for the slightest spark. So this morning we are grateful for the gentle rain and hope it brings a reprieve to those battling the blazes.
And yet in the midst of so much chaos and destruction the birds greet the dawn, the flowers unfurl and my gentle partner has been up for hours cutting by the light of his trusty headlamp.
This week we have:
Black Eyed Susans and Chocolate Susans
Bells of Ireland
Calendula--the small orange flower just under the lily
This arrangement shows off the lysimachia "firecracker", veronica, scabiosa and calendula. The lilies you must wait a year for--the late frost stunted them so the stems are only six to eight inches--but next year, wow!!
Clematis "Paul Farges"
Please call or email to pre-order clematis.
Clustered Bellflower or Glomerata
Monarda aka Bee Balm--the most beautiful crop we have ever grown.
Nigella in white and blue
Phlox in white and blue
Icelandic Poppies in assorted colors
Scabiosa in white and blue
Sweet peas in white and lavender
As always please consult your fax and email for full availability and be careful out there.
