Hi, its been awhile. I thought I would do a quick flower farm update. It has been a learning curve for sure. I think I have flowers on my mind 24/7. I hope you enjoy all the pictures. Here are some lovely iris’. I have a whole new appreciation for this old-fashioned flower!! They have such an amazing scent!!
This little raised bed is where I have planted my sweet peas. I didn’t realize that they had such an attitude. I am thinking that they are a little behind then most so I am not sure if I am going to get any flowers from them or not. Lesson for next year. Do not start inside as early, they got a little leggy and plant them out a little earlier in the season…….and give them a little cover.This is just a random shot of my side garden. I am loving the spreading Sedum. Here is a peek of the snapdragon and the strawberries. Both are growing slowly. I think I will get a few berries this year. Like with the sweet peas….some lessons learned with the snaps, therefor I will take notes and hopefully learn from my mistakes. My peony bush in bloom and they smelled so heavenly. I am hoping to plant a bunch more of these wonderful shrubs this fall. I will have to wait a few years to get many blooms but it will be worth it. This is a snap of a snap. My first blooming one!!! So exciting even if it is slightly bent. Bloom number 2….also bent out of shape:)The dusty miller is doing pretty good. I think I need to start these a little earlier next year.
I have had a little tiny experience with hail and crops…..we had a hail storm come through and it shredded leaves on my tiny wonders…it was so disappointing. My hydrangea shrubs and dogwoods suffered leaf damage also. I am holding my breath that I have quite a few blooms in a few weeks. I have my first delivery to Mama’s Happy in Independence Mn.
