Autumn's End

New England doesn't mess around when it comes to the weather. Technically it's still Autumn but we've had just enough biting cold winds sweep through to remind us Winter is just around the corner.  Don't get me wrong, I'm excited for the Holidays. I love cozy sweaters, warm socks, and cuddling by a fire is just the best. But the flowers! I hate having to say good by the garden, and to all of the loveliness we're blessed with through locally grown New England blooms.  I especially miss the dahlias when that first hard frost comes.


I grew my own dahlias from tubers for the first time this season, and am still figuring out to store and separate the ones we dug out.   It's such a process because the tubers multiply throughout the growing season! It's actually really weird, the gift that keeps on giving. Wedding season has slowed for the year and we're getting back to the basics. Because this business can't run it's self. It's funny how at some point even the boring tasks like filing and accounting can be really satisfying.  It's all cyclical like that.

September Flowers

 One of my very best friends got married this past weekend up in the mountains of Vermont and I spent the week up there with her, playing with flowers, sipping bubbly, and breathing in that fresh mountain air. It was a foggy and cold week, but it didn't damper anyone's spirits. In fact it was one of the best, most love filled weddings I have ever been to and felt so lucky to be a part of it all!  Designing florals for this particular wedding was very near and dear to my heart, and the florals we chose were out of this world.
