Seasonal Flower Alliance (05/13/2014)

A few weeks ago, Erin Benzakein of Floret invited participation in the The Seasonal Flower Alliance, a public project to arrange and photograph local, seasonal flowers. Here at Spring Forth Farm that’s what we love, so we’re excited to be a part of this. Periodically, we’ll post bouquets filled with our local, seasonal flowers, list their ingredients, and help capture time passing through the seasonality of what is in bloom.

Bachelors’ buttons are also in bloom, and these small spring flowers make very nice simple bouquets.

Here in North Carolina, we are starting to get days in the 90s. We don’t know how much longer some of these flowers will bloom — the poppies, in particular, are sensitive to hot weather — but the next round of flowers are budding up and ready to burst. As the flowers change with the seasons, we will continue post photos of what is in bloom.
