dreaming of cut flowers


Last spring, I bought this simple white pitcher from Target for $13.49, along with several packs of wildfower seeds from the Dollar Spot. While I’m still happy with the pitcher, the seeds didn’t sprout. Not a single one. So this year, in addition to trying some more seeds from any place other than Target, I’m also on the hunt for a cut flower farm or farmer’s market. You can find one near you at Local Harvest . — Sarah L.

Lovely flowers. I’m terrible with seeds, unless they’re sunflowers which sprout anywhere. Perennials are what we use in our flower gardens. They are so much easier to care for and much more forgiving when I neglect them. I also love that we can find them at at deeply discounted prices at various times throughout the year.
