The answer to that is no. Not today, not tomorrow, not any time in the foreseeable future. But I am having some fun.
Sweet Williams have been doing great, but are about shot now, with daisies and heliopsis coming on. Here is a shot from last Saturday’s market.
Bouquets for sale.
The nine bouquets were nice, but I could have used more. Note to self: let’s get some more early-blooming plants in for next year. Blue would be nice. How about Centaurea Montana or Catananche?
This week, heliopsis is doing really well. See?

Here’s a shot of this week’s bouquets:

Still waiting for cosmos, zinnias, snapdragons, and someday… sunflowers.
As always in the garden, there is good news and bad news.
Sweet Williams are blooming up a storm, but a few more decorative peppers are disappearing every day.
Bells of Ireland are starting to send up stems with bells, but quite a few celosia have been bent by the wind.
The first planting of sunflowers is nice and thick, but I had to replant in the gaps to get them that way. No more using the Earthway seeder for suns!
My new Highland White Dreams daisies have quite a few blooms, but it has been so chilly that only a few are open. Hope I have some for Saturday’s market.
This is my only row of producing flowers at this time.
I have sold some to a local florist and some at the farmers’ market. At the market, I made bouquets that sold well.

Can we please have some warmer weather now? (I’ll probably be sorry I wrote that.)
