September..time for a new journal
I think by tomorrow I will be recovered enough from my knee cortisone shots to do some gardening. I am going to try fertilizing those dahlias one more time...our soil never has too much fertility in it...I beleive it is old farm land that was stripped of top soil and left to grow up to weed trees so fertility is very low... this is also glacial till.
Went out and picked a bucket of wild Queen Anne's lace and another of button yarrow...inspired by Steve and his native flowers. That out to help stretch my garden flowers a bit. Sales are good at the stand...every day I think I won't have enough flowers but I keep doing it. Did close on Monday this week though.
I think we are going to try doing fall and winter arrangements from our local plants..probably in limited numbers..maybe Saturdays only...and see how they sell. I always enjoy working with evergreens, seed pods, lichen, madrona bark, etc.
We are thinking about trying hydrangea wreaths next year...Can you wreath makers give us some idea of how it is done? We would be interested in drying and using other flowers and grasses too but don't have much time and energy...IT would be nice to have some income throuh the late months though! And my stand is now in a shelterd enough location I think it could work to sell there.
