Cut Flower Chronicles: May

Our little community garden plot has completely taken off this month. My rows of seedlings have transformed themselves into gorgeous happy blooms and I couldn’t be more pleased with our progress.

As many of you know, much of my growing has been trial focused to determine what grows well in Texas and who can stand the heat. Thankfully most of my plants are adjusting better to the sudden onset of oppressive heat than I am. It’s been a challenge determining schedules with each plant variety and choosing who is going to make the cut (so to speak) and who won’t be making it for a second season.

Although my Instagram account shows a constant stream of updates from the garden, I thought I would share a few blooms taking center stage this month.
