My garden is filled with my favorite flowers–peonies, hydrangeas, dahlias, lilacs, iris, and more, and I love sitting out back and admiring their beauty when it’s each of their turns to bloom. I very rarely cut them unless there is a special occasion to but I also love having fresh flowers in the house. The problem is that there never seems to be enough of them (especially the peonies!) to enjoy them both inside and out nor enough time to enjoy them, but I’ve turned a corner this year.
I’m vowing to not worry about what the garden looks like and just make beautiful bouquets to enjoy indoors at least once a week for myself…and others too. Yes, pretty soon you’ll be seeing the C&B Farmstand setting up shop in my front yard, and I’m so excited. I hope to have it up and running by next weekend, and you can be sure I’ll let you know about our opening day. Until then, take some time to stop and smell the peonies.
