Do you tell your husband... don't get me flowers...?
Don't make the same mistake that I did!
My name is Peg and I LOVE flowers! My husband, Frank, laughs when I say this. For years I told him NOT to get me flowers for our anniversary or Valentine's Day or my birthday. I was sooooooo wrong!
When I started growing flowers I realized so many benefits to having flowers in the house:
I couldn't do this without Frank. He helps me when I need some muscle (see how that compassion thing works) and is the infrastructure genius on the farm. He also knows how to deliver (retired UPS driver)!
I was growing vegetables and one season the manager at our local farmers market mentioned many, many times that our market needed fresh flowers.
After much research and studying, I decided to try growing flowers. They grew and bloomed!
Then, much to my surprise, my creative side was awakened and I started to design arrangements and bouquets.
So now I am obsessed with flowers. And why not?
Flowers are beautiful! They smell wonderful! They bring back beautiful memories and create new ones. And when they are farm fresh, they last and last.
I hope that you will come out to the farm this year and cut your own flowers or order a bouquet for yourself or a friend!
