My Favorite Thing About Summer!


FullSizeRender 5


It’s FLOWER SEASON on the farm y’all!  (For the new readers to our Farmgirl Bloggers site, you can read about my flower business here.)  This year we had some early blooming sunflowers so Tuesday, for the first time this summer, we were able to put some bouquets on our honor system stand.   Because most of what we have blooming right now are sunflowers, I walked through the fields on the farm and picked some wild flowers to go with the sunflowers.  As well as cutting some things from my personal flower beds!

    What a nice break from a disasterous morning in the sewing room! Your blog brightened my mood and stopped my tears!!
    I’m always amazed by your venture and the kindness of those in your community. Keep those pics coming of the flowers and Summer Quilt Camp!!!

    Another beautiful post…your gardens are beautiful, as are the flowers, but even more beautiful are your lovely grands. They are getting so big. Your quilt camp looks like mega fun and I can’t wait to read all about it. Wish I could stop by your farm fresh flower stand, but Maine is just a bit far away.

    You brightened my world with your beautiful flowers! We had a late winter so nothing much blooming here, hopefully later. And WOW the quilting room looks like great fun!! An update will be nice. Thanks for sharing from my fav state. God bless.

    Thank you for bringing back a wonderful memory for me. Walking through my hometown in Germany with my grandparents, we came upon a field of sunflowers with a little container in which to put money. I was little and couldn’t believe they were trusting enough to do this. However, I find it to be so touching now as an adult. It feels like the farmer knows me and knows my good character. I love it.

    I love flower season! Like always I wish I lived closer so I could purchase some of your beautiful flowers. I have had a few of my own flowers come up and decided I would go cut my own bouquet today to brighten up my kitchen table. It’s amazing the wonderful feeling you get from having fresh flowers in your room. I hope your business is successful this flower season. I love how the girls quilts are turning out, very bright and beautiful! I’m excited to see how they look next time.

    Oh I love your flower stand, Dori and the all the work your whole family puts in together to make it all work is so beautiful. If I lived a lot closer to you, I’d pay you a good visit, but alas living here in Australia, it’s a little too far. I know the whole panic side of things, it’s so silky isn’t it? Once you panic about one thing, it seems to gain momentum and next thing you know you’re panicking about all these things,that don’t need panicking about at all.
    By the way, how’s your daughters house building doing?
    Lovely to see your grand girls involved in it all, and so nice to see your quilting class up and running well too. I look forward to that post.
    Big Aussie hugs to you.

    Oh, I would love to have a flower cart such as yours near to me! I’d buy two every week- one to sit on my kitchen table and another at my work desk.

    Good Morning, Dori;

    I always love to read your posts. The flowers are blooming beautifully this year! It is wonderful to hear that so many enjoy them and contribute to you so that the joy of sharing can continue. I also love seeing the picture of the girls learning to sew in your Quilt Camp! What a great idea!

    Take care.
