This last weekend, we hosted our third and final Seasonal Floral Intensive here on the farm. We welcomed flower lovers from across the country (and even abroad) for a dreamy three-day floral design focused workshop. One of the highlights of each workshop we host is setting the participants loose in our field to harvest to their hearts desire. Watching them explore our flower fields, discovering new varieties and burying their heads in the blooms is always such a treat (check out all the behind the scenes beauty over on Instagram).
Seeing them in our garden reminded me that I need to check in to see how YOUR gardens are growing this summer. How’s it going? What’s been your biggest surprise? What’s your new favorite flower this season?
A big thanks to everyone who has tagged their flowers, gardens, fields and designs with #growfloret and #floretseed. It is such a thrill to see the beauty you are cultivating across the continent.
Here are a just a few of the many, many pretty pictures that have been posted lately.
The zinnias are getting so tall. . . . . . #zinnias #bluemeadowfarms #growfloret #summer #scabiosazinnia #flowers
Return for deposit. Sometimes it’s tempting, but with this little twit on my heels, I cut faster to keep up with her destruction, and together we put a big dent in the field this morning. I can’t tell you how it feels to see all this hard work come to fruition for such a dear friend’s rainbow wedding. Her blooms have never touched the hands of child laborers, pesticides, or plastic packaging. Every single one was grown with love right here in NH. . . . . #growfloret #dahlias #lisianthus #amaranth #strawflower #digitalis #zinnias #celosia #gomphrena #cavlife #newmarketnh #newhampshirefordamnsure #grownnotflown #flowerfarmer #NHgrown

Are you growing Floret Seeds? If so, please share photos of your flowers in bloom and tag it with #FloretSeeds and/or #GrowFloret. I’ll periodically feature a few submissions here on the blog and send out some Floret Seeds goody bags to those we have featured.
And congratulations to Sonia and Ashley for winning copies of the Flora Forager book via our weekend giveaway. We’ll be in touch to get this super cute journal to you.
