Today's picture/Week one CSA flowers - 2017


And the beauty begins for another year! If you didn't happen to see last year's photos, you may click the label at the bottom of this post - Flower CSA.

I especially love this bouquet in my mother's vase. I have four very special vases and I plan to rotate them. The flower grower changed the way the bouquets are offered. Instead of providing a little metal bucket like last year's orange one, this year she is doing something different:

 "The stems will be wrapped in an Eco Fresh Wrap that will keep your stems hydrated and fresh for up to 10 hours! You can then use your vase of choice, unwrap, cut stems to vase length, fluff arrangement, and pop it into fresh water!"

    1. Thanks, Marcie! I love today's arrangement. I must remember each week to ask what the flowers are. I know some of these but not all.

    1. The whites are mock orange, but not sure about the blues. I love that vase. It was used all my childhood.

  3. The flowers are gorgeous, and special in your mum's vase. How lovely flowers each month. Windy Poplars sounds like Anne of Green Gables. Enjoy the summer.

  5. I was so hoping you would be doing this again, Nan, and that you would post. The bouquet is beautiful, as is your mother's vase. Very nice. I think the blue flowers are delphinium. I love them, but, have never had luck growing them.

    1. I'm so pleased you wanted to see the bouquets again. Vanessa does such lovely work. When you said delphinium, I thought it sounded familiar, and I'll bet you told me last year!! I'll try and remember now. ;<))

  6. Nan, we enjoy the mock orange bushes on our trail at Panola Mountain. They are the most gorgeous flowers! Love your bouquet, as I always do! Thanks for showing us!

  7. This is a very beautiful bouquet - but then of course we do not expect anything else from that particular grower, having admired her bouquets already last year :-)
    What are the eco wraps made of?

    1. If you click on the words, you will get to a page that tells all about the wrap.
