    Field Trip: Figone Flower Farm

    My friend Jenny invited me on a little Friday Fun Day to visit Louie at his Half Moon Bay flower farm. The ranunculus were starting to come up and the mustard was in full effect! Louis collected some to saute up with garlic for his dinner, while Jenny and I harvested all the straggler blooms. We cut a few of the biggest green ranuncs I have ever seen- I can't wait to get some at market in the next few weeks! It was the best Friday I have had in a while. It is very easy to get caught up in the stress and drama of wedding production- which I have been deep in this it was nice to spend time with people who are so genuinely happy to be doing what they do.


    SF Flower and Garden Show

    You might want to take the day off work this Wednesday March 19th. There is going to be quite the crew of flower folks on the SF Flower and Garden Show seminar schedule that day (Max Gill, Christina from Farmgirl Flowers, us, and more!) We'll be sharing our design philosophy and making some fun arrangements on The Flower Design Stage at 2:15pm. Admission to the seminars is free with the purchase of your garden show ticket. There is other awesome stuff going on all week too- hope to see ya there!


    get in the van

    We had our first wedding of the season last felt good to get back into the groove. I always love the spring events- especially when they have a yum color palette like this. Seriously, couples out there-contemplating a wedding date- do it in March or April. The flowers are awesome, florists are not burned out, the weather is cool, the locations are it. Yes I told Mary to gaze adoringly at the bridal bouquet. Yes Katie performed a site installation dance routine.


    on the front porch

    We took a spin around Healdsburg yesterday to meet about a possible collaboration we are so very excited about! Front Porch Farm already has a ton of awesome stuff going on (pigs! baby goats! stone-ground flour!)...but they are going to have beautiful flowers this year and we are gonna get in on that action. More to come when we figure out all the juicy details.
