Start of the Season

 

So the season has semi-officially begun! It's mostly just tulips this week and I'm a little worried it’s quite likely there’ll be a slight gap once they're finished until the annuals start blooming. But it's pretty exciting to have some colour showing this early in the season. I’m loving being lightyears ahead of last year, but as always planning to do things a lot differently and a lot earlier for next spring. In all reality it’s probably still going to take me a few years to really get all my timings and what works fully down packed, but it’s a start.

 About this time last year.

 About a month ago, different part of the field from the opposite end— I already need to go take some updated photos.

 The anemones are finally getting a bit taller, and the ranunculus have quite a few buds, neither are being all that reliable and probably won’t be able to hold their own when the tulips finish, but they sure are beautiful.

 First of the annuals to flower is looking to be the airy saponaria + larkspur, with everything else starting to take off as spring really sets in.

WHERE TO FIND OUR FLOWERS

Currently I have Mixed Tulip bunches and Seasonal Bouquets available to order on the website, as well as at HokoLoko. This however might be short lived when the tulips end, but I’m really hoping some other things will pick up where they left off at the same time without too much of a gap, though tulips are some pretty big shoes to fill—I already can’t wait to grow exponentially more of them next season.
