Homemaking|Flowers For Thanksgiving

November 16, 2023

Hello Friends, 

It's been quite awhile hasn't it?

I hope  you are doing well.

I just cannot quite believe that Thanksgiving is just one week away.

It wouldn't surpise me if you feel the same way too.


Summer truly flew by for us, Sunnydell did quite well for our first year of growing with a farming and florist mindset.

The flowers really strutted their stuff from August on, until we had our first freeze.

The photos for this post came from the blooms that were all picked right before the frost and most of these  bouquets I delivered to decorate tables for a local fundraiser.


While the blooms were fresh I arranged this bold, bountiful and colorful Thanksgiving table.
As you can see the colors of the blooms are so vibrant.
In fact, that was one of the comments that I consisitently recieived at Farmers Market, bouquet deliveries and Farm Tours-the blooms are so bright.


The more I grow flowers, the more my outlook changes on growing!

But for now, please enjoy these blooms.
