Hello beautiful friends,
My updates have been a little irregular lately and I apologize for that. Currently on the farm I am maintaining my zinnias, dahlias, cosmos and odds and ends to fulfill orders through mid October and then it's out with the old and in with the soil preparation. I've already been sowing seeds for next spring and soon I will be sowing cover crops and amending the soil to ensure next years flowers are big, beautiful and happy. Family life has sped up a bit and with Mark returning to teaching Spanish, and the girls starting kindergarten and preschool, dance class and evening activities. Fall is such a beautiful time of the year and the dahlias are just in love with the cooler temperatures. As I sit in the coffee shop typing this I mentioned to a woman that the seasons are good for us. As much as I love my job and my flowers there comes a time to pull them up and prepare for the new and this is a blessing and makes me love the color they bring in the spring that much more!
