Today is Christmas Eve and time for celebration and reflection. I am so thankful for all the blessings I have received this past year.  However, I have a bad habit of looking at things in the negative light sometimes.  This past year for flower growing gave me lots of challenges with the insects and weather.  I was disappointed at the end of the season with overall flower business and try to understand what I can do different this coming year.  But the truth is, sometimes you do all the right things but life just doesn't turn out the way you want it too.  Then I stop and think, I did learn new things about flower growing this year and I did have many successes too.  But today and tomorrow I will take the time and enjoy family and friends and give thanks to God for all he has given me.  Then come 2019 I will again begin to plan for the planting and harvesting of all the beautiful flowers that God has made and allows me to grow and enjoy and share with others.  So Merry Christmas to everyone and a Happy New Year.  2019 is going to be a fabulous year, so y'all stay tuned and watch the flowers that will come out of my fields this year.

It has been awhile since I posted anything.  So I'm going to post a few pictures from our 2018 season. Things were very busy this year with lots of challenges to overcome in the flower business and our personal lives.  My husband and I both are a little older and face some health issues from time to time, but overall we still manage to grow lots of beautiful flowers.

These were bouquets that were on the Flower Wagon for sale.


A new sunflower variety I grew and really liked it.  Will be growing more in the 2019 season.


Another bouquet from the 2018 season.

We had a beautiful crop of orange Marigolds this year.  Very prolific bloomers.

We planted lots of flower plugs in October and direct seeded lots of seeds for spring flowers.  After a brief rest, we will soon start seeding trays for more spring flowers.  Here are a few pictures of some of the young plants that come from direct seeding.






 Some of the young tiny plants are covered with frost cloth to protect against winter weather.

Here we are in August with hot, humid weather, insects having meals off the sunflowers and zinnias and of course the powdery mildew on the zinnias.  But this is what we expect every year at this time. Just some years not as bad as others.  But you keep planting and hoping to have a fall crop of useable blooms.
I'm going to post a few pictures of the bouquets we had available on the wagon from May until today August 8, 2017.


              These bouquets were on Flower Wagon May 27th, 2017






                                   These are from the June 3rd, 2017 cuts.








These are from June 24, 2017





                                          These are from July 9, 2017  

In one bouquet you can see the beautiful Stargazer lily.  The stargazer had just begun to bloom.  In the bouquets below you can also se the limelight millet, tansy, some small pieces of celosia syphlid and hi-z as well a tuberose and of course the zinnias and sunflowers.






                                             These are from July 28, 2017  

Now seeing more spiky celosias, purple gomphrena, purple majesty millet and of course lots of bright colored zinnias and the big red head celosias.






                                            These are from August 5, 2017.   

Seeing more celosias in bouquets, both the spicata varieties and cristata varieties. And in a few there is the sweet little Henry Eilers rudbeckia.




 So this brings up to date through August 2017, showing the basic bouquets we have as the months progress.  I have to say, we have wonderful customers that come and buy from our Flower Wagon when we have bouquets available.  I always enjoy the feedback my customers send my way about our bouquets.
