To be quite frank, it’s been a hard autumn season. We are having a wake-up call to the menagerie of critters eating our vegetable garden including, but not limited to: 8 different species of caterpillars, a colony of rabbits, deer, and cutworms to name some. Needless to say, after losing half of the vegetables we planted, we felt discouraged and inadequate. Luckily, our flowers are growing elsewhere right now, and they have been growing beautifully.
HOWEVER, in spite of all that, Spring Forth Farm is celebrating a big accomplishment. We provided flowers for our first wedding. We worked hard planning, cutting, and arranging. It was a joy to deliver such beauty to our friends, the bride and groom, on their big weekend. We are thankful that they gave us this opportunity and took a risk with us as we stepped forward into the world of wedding flowers!
This is a good reminder for us that when we are struggling in one part of the farm, we can have a success in another.
Below are pictures of our work including Jonathan’s boutonnieres, Megan’s first bridal bouquet and table arrangements for the rehearsal dinner and wedding reception. Enjoy!
