Wedding Season

Wedding season has officially begun here at the farm. That means that each week for the next 9 weeks, we will be host to a gathering of friends and family as they witness the exchange of vows between two people. This also means we will be arranging lots of flowers for weddings here at the farm and in other locations until the frost takes the flowers in the fall.

And finally, this means we are playing the wedding game daily, which includes the requisite bouquet and corsage, cut by the bride and always tied with a ribbon to match. No matter how much I encourage long stems, my youngest helper always cuts the stems to match her grip.

Luckily, she has a great eye for design, just like her older sister, and she loves flowers almost as much as kittens. Yesterday, when there was no groom available, Flora was delighted to learn she could marry a woman, and God willing, this will be legal by the time our girl meets a mate.

Blessings on the meal,


  1. Good gracious, Stacy, those flower arrangements are especially gorgeous. You do that so well.
    (And I certainly hope all is legal when that girl is old enough to marry, especially because I've got a girl here who would very much like to be her bride!)

  2. What amazing bouquets! And your last comment made me tear up a little! We're working hard with EqualityMaine for the next campaign; this world needs a little more love!
