An intimate moment in the garden. Tucking in bulbs we won't see again --if at all--until spring. It's an act of faith and trepidation, like placing a baby--maybe not a human baby, but some kind of tender young thing--in a soft bed, covering them from the light, and hoping you made the conditions right for their survival.
The autumn equinox is this Friday, the official turning of the wheel of the year from the light of summer to the dark of winter. These bulbs are a prayer to spring, a hope buried in the earth, that the sun will again return once the cold nights have passed.
Sweet dreams, little plant! We hope to see you again next year!
It's finally here!!! This summer, I worked on an anniversary calendar for the @calgaryhorticulturalsociety, and after 2 months of grueling editing, it's finally in print! It was created from scratch, with some photos from @314j and yours truly. The calendar also features gardening tips and an exclusive seed-starting chart. Today, it debuts at the Society's AGM. In a way, it's a bit more nerve-wracking to see this calendar in print than my own products, since this was my very first client-commissioned piece but I'm excited to see if people enjoy it. If you'd like to buy one for $15, let me know or stop by the Society office in Calgary. 🌻🌼🌻#calendar#design#colour#flowers#horticulture#gardening#garden#plants#2018#calgary
Reflection;🤔Our farm has a lot going on; Goat Yoga, Designer chicken coops, raised gardens, photo location & our treasured Fl aquifer...sometimes it's hard to focus on what it is we are rapidly becoming but in the midst of all of this one of our greatest joys are the people our boutique farm attracts. Social media can be daunting to me at times but yesterday we were visited by one of the most talented photographers we've met. While passing through @wild_billiam stopped by with his drone & took incredible impromptu pictures of our farm. His IG account is superb & what a gift it was for us to connect through social media. He's not only immensely talented but an incredibly kind person. If you have social media mastered 👏. Those like me stay #positive the connections are real & not just the number of likes you get.💫💕🌱*
I bought this beautiful 5 star jasmine plant from Bunnings, re potted it, fed it and now it's got crazy 12inch growth in 4 weeks! Flowers will be coming in soon too, hope the local bees 🐝 like it too! I'm looking forward to the sent of jasmine in the air mixed in with our lavender should be a real delight. 🌻🐝
Four years into experimenting with saving seeds from a single mother sugar pumpkin. Clearly nature favors diversity! Also as clear, Monsanto's not knocking on my door anytime soon. 😝 #artlife#gardening#diversity#lifeisbeautiful
