Okay, so what looks like a handful of buttered popcorn, smells sweetly of cloves and lasts forever in the vase? Stock! I love this flower. It is new to us, this is our second year growing it and I am constantly amazed by this workhorse flower. The bunch above rode in the truck with me to Sun Valley and was not sold, so I get it. (I lay claim to all the left-overs.) I stuffed it back in the cooler for a few days and then made this little bouquet for my bedside over a week ago...and look at it! Amazing!
We are harvesting the end of this stock crop so don't miss out. We have white, butter yellow (pictured above), three variations of pink (pictured below) and lavender and purple.
The snap dragons have also begun blooming. We have Chantilly snaps in white, yellow, apricot and pink and we have white rocket snaps.
The sweet peas are blooming, a bit slowly with the cooler temps, but lovely on strong long stems.
We are cutting the last of the "Tahiti" daffodils, another workhorse. The bouquet featured below was beautiful in the vase for ten days. Our little darling "Bridal Crown" daffodils is also blooming. A double daffodil, butter yellow with multiple heads per stem, these fragrant flowers also look like a handful of popcorn.
