In the beginning...

We are in the thick of the seed starting season! I love this time of year, I get to peruse and choose which flowers to grow and see the little seedling babes make their way to the surface. There’s really nothing quite like it! I’m growing hundreds and hundreds of what will be gorgeous blooms, it’s a little overwhelming because eventually these will require some back breaking planting soon, lol! I swear I have a seed addiction, I bought way too much this year…

I finally feel like I’ve got my own space to grow, which, after all these long years of floral design has got me feeling all the feels. I’m doing it! I’m growing and designing my way, from choosing the seeds to handing the bouquet to a client, I’m there for it all. I couldn’t be happier with how these years of hard work are paying off. I’ve still got a lot of years to learn, but I’m trying to take it in stride. Besides, I’ve got the very best helpers (couldn’t have done this without my amazing family).
