Today's picture/Week four CSA flowers

Usually we take care of Hazel Nina on Tuesdays and Fridays, but this week her mother had to work today as well, so she came with us to get the CSA flowers. The woman who runs the farm is a friend of Margaret's and so Hazel knows her and was excited to go. The bouquets are all set out on the table, wrapped in paper, soaking in water. They are all pretty much the same, but we can pick the one we want. Hazel chose this week's bouquet and on the way home after five minutes in the car, she was asleep,


as was Lucy in the front seat!


Tom drove us home, I put the flowers in water, and off we went again for an hour, driving the back roads in air-conditioned comfort on this very hot day.

On Monday, I made two little bouquets from the flowers that were left from last week.


And here are this week's flowers!

  1. Beautiful. I love the little shot of orange in this week's arrangement. That Nina is such a sweet little girl, so is Lucy.

  5. Such an angelic photo of Hazel Nina, sound asleep after all that driving and choosing a bouquet. She chose well.
    I love floral arrangements, and enjoy the process of breaking them down into smaller vases, as they die back. Lovely post.

  8. I haven't heard of CSA flowers before, made a note to see if they're available around here. It's pretty that the flowers last week were in cool tones and this week in warm colors. Your granddaughter is so lovely, even while asleep!

  10. The flowers continue to amaze me. So lovely, how rich you must feel to be surrounded by beautiful fresh flowers. Hazel is quite the beauty, too, of course. And Lucy, don't want to leave anyone out.
