Today's picture/Week eleven CSA flowers


Second to the last week. Makes me sad but I think that last fall there were some of her flowers in the local Co-op so I'll buy them if I see any. And I talked to her today about a Christmas wreath. She puts her own dried flowers in them, so we shall buy our wreath there this year. She's such a nice young woman. Tom and I are lucky people that our daughter is so close by, and that her friends are our friends. It is a wonderful thing to hang out with thirty-somethings when one is sixty-something. And we see it with Margaret's friends as well. Their folks are a regular, happy part of their lives. Lucky, lucky.

  2. Another breathtaking bouquet, Nan. Your header photos are always gorgeous, but this one I especially like. It feels very peaceful; I would love to be there.

    1. Thank you. It is very peaceful. Beyond the gate is the south pasture.

  3. Once again, gorgeous!
    I know you will miss these arrangements and, if truth be told, I will miss seeing them every week, Nan. If you are able to get a wreath, I hope you will post it.

  4. Unlike many people, I don't dread the Christmas "rush" at all - as for me, it is never a rush; we know all year when it'll be and can prepare well at our own pace, can't we! Therefore, I am looking forward to seeing the Christmas wreath. I am sure it will be as beautiful as the flowers we've seen so far.
    Yes, lucky and blessed when we have our folks close by (and ARE close to them). It always makes me sad when someone mentions they don't get along with their parents (or children) and hardly see each other. I treasure my Mum, Dad and sister so much, knowing full well that they are the most precious part of my life and to a large extent made me what I am.

    1. I don't dread it either! I love the whole season. You are so lucky to be close to your family, both physically and emotionally.

  5. Young friends keep you young, I firmly believe. So do beautiful flowers and views of the south pasture. You are lucky indeed!

  7. I've loved your CSA bouquets and they've inspired me to buy flowers when I go to our Farmer's Markets (food for the spirit, where before I'd only been thinking about for the stomach ;>)! . Mine aren't quite as consistently beautiful as yours, but they have cheered up our little space!
