Last Saturday was the first pick-up of my flower share! Gorgeous two-toned violet and blue hyacinths – a variety called “Miss Saigon”- a favorite of the folks at Fivefork Farms for the intensity of color and their sweet fragrance.
I resisted the temptation to purchase additional flowers but enjoyed the beautiful colours on display at the market.
Well if Groundhog Day didn’t give you any encouragement that spring is indeed coming back around..spring bulbs will do it.
Today’s Friday favourite is a perfect pot of spring waiting to blossom – from my favourite flower shop Sweet Violets, and Jo.
What a cool idea! A flower CSA (community supported agriculture)
FiveFork Farm has several options. I chose the 6 week spring share. Beginning in mid-April I get to pick up a single-variety bouquet every week at my local farmers market. Check out your local CSA to see if they have a flower option. I can’t wait for spring!
