Worshiping these Corvacado OT hybrid Lilies this week.

What’s with all the hate towards Lilies these days all about anyways- I don’t get it.

People are all like “my CAT!” 🐈🐈‍⬛

To that I say- There are many cut flower varieties that are toxic to cats- not just Lilies. 😬 So chances are if you’ve bought a bouquet (with or without Lilies) and had it in your house and your cat hasn’t thrown up or died yet, they aren’t interested enough to eat enough of it that will kill them.

Nontoxic flowers= herbs, roses, snapdragons, calendula, bachelors buttons, monarda, asters, pansies, statice, Orchids randomly.

Toxic flowers= most the other ones. But esepecially Lilies, Tulips, Ranunculus, Daffodils, Foxgloves, HYDRANGEA, PEONIEs, CARNATIONS, Lavender, EUCALYPTUS, Iris, BABY’s BREATH!, Chrysanthemums

^^^a lot of these are very common and popularly used in mixed bouquets

(I know ya’ll arn’t avoiding these like you’re avoiding Lilies- NOT FAIR!!!)

This anti Lily movement can be chalked up to cherry picking data. If you don’t like like Lilies, fine- I don’t get it, but OK- just don’t blame it on your cat.

Totally understandable to be worried about your furry friend- just wanted to do some myth busting! Oh- also NOT ALL LILIES ARE SCENTED! try Asiatic or LA hybrids if you’re sensitive. Now,

Maybe some of you can feel free to give Lilies another shot!

I say if you have a troublesome flower eating kitty- put that s**t somewhere out of reach- and if you’re cat is that determined than stick to the flowers I mentioned above and godspeed.

PSA: these are NOT wildflowers!

I think it is important to clarify that the flowers that are grown by me and other flower farmers are NOT wild. They are a crop. Like all other crops, cut flowers take a lot of work to grow. Us flower farmers raise these plants from seed, making sure each plant gets all it needs to be as prolific, productive and healthy as possible in order to deliver beautiful, quality blooms for floral customers spanning from professional florists, couples getting married, and retail customers alike.

We test and amend our soil so that it is heathy and hospitable, we support our flowers so they don’t flop in the rain or wind and get all twisty and crooked, we are out in the field at 9pm spraying fertilizer, scouting for bugs. We spend 90 degree days harvesting at just the right stage.

I know, that most of the time, when folks refer to flowers as “wildflowers” they actually are describing a design style. Meaning, they don’t want roundy moundy arrangements, they want something more organic- maybe “wild” in style.

It makes sense that locally grown flowers are confused with true wildflowers (flowers that just grow by themselves in the actual wild- not on a farm or in a garden) This is because, locally grown flowers are SEASONAL. Most US flower farmers do grow flowers that mirror what grows wildly. Because that is what grows well in the area and at that particular time of year.

The problem I have with people using the term “wildflowers” when referring to cultivated local flowers, is that it makes invisible all the work put into growing them. It DEVALUES them. People assume they should be cheaper. It constantly puts flower growers in the position of defending their prices- especially when prices are already being compared to the grocery store prices. It takes a lot of work, time and experience to make flowers look this “wild” 💁

I suggest the term “seasonal” instead. Or perhaps “fieldy.”

Would love your thoughts on this. Have you ever made this mistake? Is this helpful? Lets have a discourse!

Just bit the bullet and registered for the Sustainable Flowers Project 2022!

Last September I ventured out to Alberta, Canada to learn from , , , Syma Habib, and Carolynne Crawley of Msitnokmaq

Talking shop with other flower people who are genuinely working to make meaningful change in this industry was invigorating, inspiring, healing and FUN!

This year it will be held in NJ, and I simply couldn’t pass up a visit to my home state for another couple days of enriching education. Straight up self care ya’ll.

Can’t wait to learn from another inspiring group of instructors including , , and and to spend time at

If you’re a flower person, and care about making the industry more sustainable ( you should…) and are able to invest, I highly recommend!

“WE’RE HERE, WE’RE Q***R. DON’T F**K WITH US, WE’RE FABULOUS”

I took last weekend off the farm to celebrate pride in DC.

Pride still feels a little lonely for me. I spent a lot of years feeling confused and stuck in between before it dawned on me that I’m q***r. Pride is so much about celebrating q***r magic and joy with your “family” - for a lot of q***r folks that is not the family they were born into. Since coming out as gender q***r, and adopting THEY/ THEM pronouns (please and thank you) I am still searching and working on building my q***r fam in Loudoun County, VA. I’ve certainly found some amazing q***r friends and allies and it’s finally starting to come together- but it’s a loooong work in progress!

PSA about pronouns! Trans folks know it’s hard for you. Before you complain about how hard it is- take a minute and think about what it was like for them to make the switch (all the courage) , and then think about how bad it might feel after doing all that work, to be ignored, or denied the dignity of being gendered properly. If they can do the work, you can do the work. WORK ON IT.

I am resolving to be a better advocate of my gender identity at this moment. If/ when I correct you- I’m not angry- yet. I just need you to be conscious of it. You can be sure that I am. I clock it every time you call me she- and every time you call me they, I feel happy inside. Thank you in advance!

SO! Shout out to all the LoCo q***rs out there! Let’s get together yayaya!

And as ever, deepest gratitude to all the trans folks of color who kicked it off decades ago!
