Early Summer Flowers


I am so in love with the ornamental lupins (pictured right) that were all over the farm for the last month, and with the peonies that are all over the farm now, especially the extremely fragrant white peonies. I am such a sucker for fresh cut flowers, and my favourite bouquets are the ones that are picked from my own neighborhood, or in this case, backyard. 

Yesterday I stumbled upon this website for a florist in Vancouver who works with eco-friendly packaging and organic, fair trade flowers. It will be nice to have her as a go-to when all there is left out here in the Langley Township is dried blackberries on the bush and the flowerless rose bushes swaying in the breeze.
