Locally Grown Flowers in February!

February in Maryland is pretty awesome. Especially this year with mild temps and sunny days. This week we’ve had a great variety of flowers, foliage and flowering branches to work with.

On Tuesday, I went down to Annapolis for the last Maryland Growers meeting before the season. This meeting is always fun, interesting and informative. It’s especially fun for me because I get to see some of my grower friends that I rarely see and when they can, they bring me flowers. This week, I picked up some early forsythia and cornel dogwood from Seaberry Farm.

Today I headed out to Farmhouse Flowers to pick up tulips, lilies, dusty miller and stock. The stock was stunning!

All of these flowers, foliage and branches made for some really cool, (early) Spring arrangements.

She used eucalyptus, paper whites, stock, tulips, kalanchoe and curly willow in this table arrangement.IMG_3919We’re gearing up for Valentine’s Day next week.
