It has been an exceptionally cool and wet spring with record lows (including a last frost date of May 13th here at the farm when it was thirty-one degrees) and record rainfall. Most of my field blooms are a couple of weeks late; plants in the annual and tender perennial hoop houses are thriving, although even a few of these varieties are a bit behind schedule given lower than anticipated night time lows. The great news is that the first two peonies have bloomed and dozens more are just behind them.
West Sound Home & Garden featured our farm and the flower farmers growing here this year in their May/June issue. This is our first year sharing this land with other growers and it's been pure magic to watch it all unfold.
I hope you enjoy these images of a few of what's in bloom here this first week of June.
