We all have to do what we can to make this country the country we want to live in.

PEONIES ARE MY FAVORITE FLOWER. There, I said it. And getting to share their beauty with you all is one of the joys of my life.

There are Friday and Saturday options for both Rocklands Farm Winery and Locals Farm Market!

Don’t forget to send us pics!!!
Offering y’all this little bit of found-on-the-roadside beauty in the hopes that it brings a moment of peace today.
So thankful for some extra stems this week from my girl Kristin over . This season has been a challenge, with dips in temp, supply chain issues, and difficulty with quality bulb sourcing so I’m feeling big time gratitude for our solid network of fellow local growers!
Second day of potting up all your plant sale babies! They’re looking SO GOOD and let me tell you, time spent in the greenhouse is MY FAVORITE.
Can’t wait to see them bloom in all of your gardens. 🌱
The prettiest leftovers. 🩰
Today’s the day, folks! Our Queens of the Spring week #1 pickup is today in the flower shop until 8pm. Catch some local music and take home some wine while you’re there.

Last pic is a painting Maisy did yesterday afternoon. 😍
You know what can make this rainy dreary week a lil bit better? You guessed it. LOCAL FLOWERS! Order today for pickup tomorrow Rocklands Farm Winery.
Tulip Avant Garde is comin’ on QUICK. The perfect creamy white with a delicate scent that reminds me of wildflower honey. We will probably do a *CROP DROP* for these beauties in the next few days as they continue to color up.

Who’s got two thumbs and forgets how much she loves daffodils every March and then again in May when it’s time to order more bulbs?
Happy Friday, flower lovers. Can one of you please volunteer to remind me of the above? K thx. 💛
Over the last decade or so of growing flowers, we’ve tried them all. And in order to stay in the crop plan, varieties have to be highly productive, easy to grow AND remarkably beautiful. The 36+ starts included in this collection check all those boxes.
Trays will be ready for pickup and planting in mid-May, after all danger of frost has passed. You can expect a mix of the following annuals (exact quantities and varieties will be grower’s choice, depending on seed germination and other factors): various colors and varieties of zinnias, cosmos, celosia, strawflower, gomphrena, marigold, ageratum, rudbeckia, and scabiosa. All flowers are cut-and-come-again and grow very well in our climate. The more you harvest, the more they bloom. Many of the included varieties are also great for drying and for natural dyeing!
You can have the cut flower garden of your dreams, without all the guesswork, complicated timelines, and seed-starting. We’ve got that stuff covered.
Detailed growing instructions will be provided with each Curated Cut Flower Garden. Pre-order using the link below!
Happy Spring Equinox, dear ones!
Every year, without fail, daffodils and tulips push up from the ground, branches burst with fresh green leaves and delicate blossoms, and we press seeds into the soil, imagining the armloads of flowers we will harvest once the weather warms. Birdsong returns and the ground begins to hum with life. We take comfort in the beautiful familiarity of Spring and in the rhythms of our tasks.
One of our favorite events of 2021 is back for 2022, baby!!! A 6-week long spring flower love-fest begins this April and sign-ups are LIVE in the shop. Two weeks each of the fanciest tulips, ruffly ranunculus, and bodacious peonies. Pick-up each Friday (noon - 8pm) from our workshop at Rocklands Farm.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Growing, harvesting, and bunching these flowers and then getting to gush over them at pick-up with each of you was truly a highlight of last season. We're pumped to do it again. ☀️ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
✨Full circle moment✨ right here, my friends: On Christmas Eve, I conjured up this pillow sham for my sister and David using cloth napkins from their wedding, dyed with the flowers from their wedding (marigolds and two different dahlia dye-baths, along with avo pits for the pink). Mostly Sungold farmed + foraged, with some goodies from our friends sprinkled in.
This is a dream I’ve had for a long time and it feels magical that I made it happen for my sister. And I still have PLENTY of the dyed napkins to make a quilt later this winter.
My question for you guys is this: do you want to see more of the art we’re making, aside from florals? Natural dyeing, quilting, painting, writing, illustrating?
✨…tidings of comfort and joy…✨
From Caitlin + Anna, your friendly neighborhood flower freaks.
We return to the bright side, day by day. Happy Solstice, dear ones. ✨
2022 is shaping up quite nicely, friends! We’re putting the finishing touches on our Queens of the Spring subscription, a September DAHLIA share (💃🏻), chatting with amazing wedding couples, and brainstorming a bunch of flower-filled workshops . Is there something in particular you’d like to spend an afternoon learning how to do? We’ve got flower crowns, a giant install, and natural dyeing on the list - tell us what you’re thinking! Maybe another painting day with ???! 💚
All of this goodness will be announced first to our e-mail list, just so ya know!
TULIP BULBS ARE IN. I just dumped the last wheelbarrow of compost on this bed and I’m checking this task off the list. Anna and crew finished the dahlia cleanup last week (some got dug, others were left in the ground for another winter). Hoops are being prepped for ranunculus and beds have been untarped to get ready for another 200 new peony roots. All this dirty work has to get done in order to produce ALL. THE. BEAUTY. in 2022. That dichotomy is one of my favorite parts about farming, how bout you?
As part of our commitment to radical anti-perfectionism, please enjoy this very impromptu wild vine wreath tutorial. Making these wreaths has become a little mediation for me, a simple act of looking for and acting on inspiration in nature. Many of you asked how the heck to make them so here you go!
Remember those impossibly cheerful yellow cosmos from a few weeks back? Turns out they actually were perfect for my sister’s wedding.
Long live the lush, vibrant, colorful backyard wedding. Cannot WAIT to share more from David + Shannon’s (that’s my SISTER!!) beautiful October celebration. 100% local flowers, foliage and fruits and one of our favorite all time color palettes.
A snap from Frostmas past…
And that’s a wrap on our 2021 weddings, y’all. It’s been a WILD fall, filled with color and beauty and texture and warmth and ART. We’ve pushed ourselves creatively and connected with our community to make each one of these events happen.
Now we turn our focus to end-of-season cleanup in the shop and garden, fall bulb and perennial planting, number crunching, goal-setting and REST.
We will only be taking on a very small number of events in 2022 so if you’re looking for artful, seasonal, terroir florals don’t wait to get in touch. We’d love to hear from you.
We plan to announce our 2022 Workshop Calendar before the end of the year so if you’d like to be among the first to hear, make sure you’re signed up for our newsletter.
We live for surprises in the garden.
We knew this variety of cosmos takes FOREVER to bloom and after two years in a row of “wtf is going on with this flower?” we SWORE we wouldn’t grow it for 2021. But I had a big pack of seeds left and was feeling abundant and so I seeded a couple trays back in MARCH. They made their way into the ground in April and finally bloomed this week, 7 months after being sown. From a business perspective these are clearly not worth the bed space. But as far as bringing joy and brightness to my day, well I’d say they’re pure gold.
And they just might be perfect for my sister’s wedding on Saturday. 🌼
This is true
Mid October still-life. 🍂🥚
A wreath that Anna made today as a celebration what’s happening in the garden RIGHT. NOW. It’s what we try to do for each one of our weddings, an authentic snapshot of the natural world in the time and place of your celebration. There’s no shortage of material when you source the way we do, only abundance.
Grow yourself some moonflowers, friends. Their scent is otherworldly.
