My Misadventure!!

Well instead of going to look at lots of fabulous Dahlias, I ended up in the ER in Tacoma. Once I was stabilized (read lots of pain meds) we made a hurried trip home and went immediately to the Langley Hospital where I had surgery last Tuesday. I am now home from the hospital but will be slowly recovering for the next month or so!

So needless to say, I will not be doing any flower work for the rest of the year. The Garden is still open though!! Vivian and my dad are keeping the Dahlias, Delphiniums and sunflowers in good shape for you to come pick. They are also making sure that there are dahlias and sunflowers picked and ready to go. Don't forget about the Bucket of Dahlia. You may or may not see me out and about, but I do encourage you to still come for a visit.

Just thought I would let everyone know that I will be away from the farm until Sept 18th. I am going to Washington State to look at some new Dahlia varieties and have a little holiday at the same time.

The Garden and shop are Open!!. Vivian and Dad are looking after things. Dad's job is to keep the outside Sunflower and dahlia prepicked area stocked for your convenience. He will also be looking after the Bucket of Dahlias. You can let me know if he does a good job! I have done up lots of bouquets so come and get one before they are all gone.

I will post pictures of what I found when I get back. I have quite a list of Dahlias to look at.

There is lots happening in the garden. The Dahlias are in full bloom and a new crop of sunflowers is just starting to open. The Delphiniums are also doing wonderful.

Custom Order Vases.

I was really busy this last week doing custom order vases and I thought I would share with you some of them. You can either bring in your own vase, purchase one or borrow one for your special event.

This first one was to celebrate a 30th Wedding Anniversary. It was a very special vase that the customer brought and it definitely turned out spectacular.
This was for a 90th Birthday.
I did this vase for myself. It looks lovely on my dining room table.
So please keep me in mind if you have a special event coming up that you would like flowers for.
