With these pictures as inspiration, it is your turn to think about your surroundings to see what you can create.  You can participate on Instagram or Pinterest with other flower lovers and share your creations.

We have been inspired by Erin Benzakein founder of Floret Flower Farm, who, as she calls herself "a total flower nut".  She has created the #seasonalfloweralliance on Instagram to share your local arrangements with others.  Check out her blog and beautiful pictures on her web site.

Debra Prinzing author and founder of Slow Flowers, has a challenge for 2015 to think locally and create an arrangement for 52 weeks.  Click on  Slow Flowers for details. 

We will continue to share our "Friday Night Romance" each week with everyone.  This will give you a peek at what is blooming on our farm and give you inspiration as the seasons change.

 

Stay tuned for details of our DIY event and wedding options for 2015 next week.........
