Well this is odd--I am creating a post and the week is all but over. Fourth of July week and the following week, are always big weeks for us and if I am busy filling orders, I know you are too!! But seriously this week totally got ahead of me, flowers were selling out faster than I could post their availability. Thank you, we really do appreciate you and LOVE to sell flowers. I am only writing this for next year so that when planning ahead you might have some idea of what was available.
My apololgies to you all for the lack of an entry last week--we were just inundated with weeds, flowers and orders! I had to kick into triage mode and the blog got cut--I knew you would rather have an abundance of fresh beautiful flowers on the truck than photos here.
Sadly we have come to the end of the peony crop for the season. It was our biggest crop ever and thanks to you, every stem went to a good home. We are gearing up for the Fourth of July weekend with white, red and blue flowers. We are heavy on the white this week--white asclepias, white sweet peas (new crop), white scabiosa, white gaura grass and white Iceland poppies, all featured above and below. We will have snaps in a variety of reds from lipstick pink, cherry red, wine and plum red. For blue we have magestic cobalt and sky blue delphinium, veronica and the first of the blue phlox.
The July annuals and perennials have started and we have a nice mix of colors and textures. Bells of Ireland, diablo, dusty miller, firecracker, lady's mantle and silver king can get you started. We have poppy pods, flowering gaura grass, coral penstemon and quaking grass to accent your designs. For focal elements we have heliopsis, Iceland poppies, matricaria, delphinium, scabiosa, snaps, sweet peas, veronica and yarrow.
Some of the new flowers are just coming on and so will be limited in number. Please call, email or text to reserve your order or to check on the most up to date availability.
Apologies first, I am really late with this week's post--sorry to Sun Valley as your orders are in and we are practically out the door. But, for future reference and for the rest of the week here is a very abbreviated entry for the week. Please check your fax and email for the most current availability--we will probably be sending out a new list tomorrow for the Jackson area, things are going so fast. Thank you, thank you for your fabulous orders!
