Repost because I love the pic & the story = "Here in the states farmers, florists, floral buyers and flower lovers are all celebrating American Flowers Week. When I was first starting out, no one was talking about, or seemed interested in knowing about where their flowers came from. Or more importantly, who grew them. There was a huge disconnect between flower buyers and flower farmers. But over the past decade, and really in just the last few years, interest in local, seasonal flowers has skyrocketed here in the states. Flower farmers are finally stepping out from behind their blooms and showing their beautiful faces, and telling their unique stories. Floral designers are now connecting with growers in their area, and often starting a cutting garden (or farm!) of their own to supplement what they can't yet source. And even the big wholesalers are now offering more and more locally grown product. It is both inspiring and heartwarming to witness this incredible transformation. The future is bright for the floral industry and I am so excited to see what we are able to create going forward. Happy #americanflowersweek 🎉 #farmerflorist#flowerfarmer#floretseeds "

A throwback (by days) to one of my favorite places, the Colorado mountains. Some beautiful Virginia Bluebells line a path between tall stark Aspens. This picture doesn't begin to show the beauty of this woodland wonderland! 💚

Here's how I'm getting a little R&R post- #americanflowersweek & post- #slowflowerssummit 💦🕶☀️I'm joining many longtime gardening friends on the @northwesthort tour of gardens on Kitsap Peninsula! And doing so requires a ferry ride!!! So gorgeous!!!
Last of the yarrow from my garden! Yarrow is such a hardy summer flower that lasts soooo long after its cut, You get to enjoy them for a few more weeks inside too! #AmericanFlowersWeek#longfieldgardens @smilefarmsinc @1800flowers
I'm very late on posting this because I wanted to spend a little time away from social media. But Happy July 4th ! This is an old pic of our double tulips from Spring. Thought it was festive for the Fourth of July 🇺🇸
With a look like this and names like vanilla and cherry vanilla, you wouldn't want to share these fabulous Scoop Scabiosa, but they did get delivered to @localcolorflowers and will look great in wedding arrangements this weekend. #americanflowersweek#farmerbaileyplugs#scoopscabiosa
Hard to capture just how gorgeous this bucket of lysimachia and echinacea is together but I do try! These beauties are for our sold out workshop at @paradocxvineyard this Friday! Missed out but want to join us next time? The link is up for our August date at PDX on my site. Limited spots... also super excited that we will be popping up for 2 workshops at @kennettcreamery in late Aug and September! Stay tuned for details and links. #chestercounty#garden#kennettsquare#americanflowersweek#localflowers
Thanks to everyone who joined in to help make this (2017) the most successful #americanflowersweek evah! Because of you, the #slowflowersmovement generated 4.9 MILLION IMPRESSIONS on Instagram & Twitter alone (not counting FB).... more than triple our 2016 metrics! 🇺🇸💐🇺🇸🌸🇺🇸🌻🇺🇸✌🏽to you all!
Happy 4th and happy final day of American Flowers Week!! This is the beginning bloom of the Sunset Hyssop.
This native to the cool mountain slopes of the Southwest truly encapsulates a Western sunset in its flowers. Bold spikes of sunset-orange flowers are borne from August to frost. The Sunset Hyssop is known for its distinct aromas of licorice, root beer, and mint, and it possesses nectar rich flowers that are unsurpassed in their attractiveness to hummingbirds. It will thrive in our hot
dry climate in sun or partial shade, and it is one of the best, most durable species in the Agastache family. The Sunset Hyssop is cold and drought-tolerant (once established). (Garden In A Box)
Happy 4th, y'all! Just got back from a lovely little trip to the Hamptons. Not a great photo, but wanted to capture an arrangement created with flora foraged from the coastal woodlands, dunes, and bay. (Rosa rugosa, yarrow, Daucus carota, allium, artemisia, juniper, rabbitfoot clover, grass, bayberry, ferns, Eleagnus, seaweeds.) Now gearing up for tomorrow's @ccfmrkt! #americanflowersweek
As #americanflowersweek wraps up we want to send out a big Thank You to our customers for their support and for helping us to put #americangrown roses back on the U.S. home grown flower map. It's been our honor and pleasure to serve you. Wishing you all a happy 4th of July and our country a very Happy Birthday! 📷: @thisohiolife 🌹🇺🇸🌹🇺🇸 #rosegirlltd
Good to have help! Leave it to Mimi to get the red, white and blue sweet peas together. We've been intending to do it and it never even made the list :) Getting up to my mountain is definitely inching its way up, but for now it will wait in the distance. Happy 4th, whatever it may mean to you! Love and patience and summer blooms ❤️☺️💐 #frfshoutout
