This morning I woke with thoughts of this year’s flower garden to be. Perhaps it was the image of these strawflowers last night before I went to bed. The apricot to orange hues of the flowers transported my thoughts to warmer days ahead, and set my creative mind in motion.
On the way to 34th street are Strawflowers. . . Apricot Mix via Floret Flower Farm .
I visualize them dried and tucked here and there around the house for late Summer into Fall house dressing. They can be gift embellishments. Gosh . . . lovely strung onto natural twine.
How to Grow
Start seed indoors in trays 6 weeks before last frost. Seed requires light to germinate so do not cover. Bottom water until seedlings emerge. Transplant out after all danger of frost has passed.
6 weeks before the last frost . . . a reminder we are nearly half way to the next season.
Feelin’ warmer already.
