Our little farm is waking up early from its winter’s nap. Daffodils are blooming down by the chicken coop and we’ve cut our first anemone in the hoop house. A few ranunculus are in bud, pussy willow and curly willow are already cut and stored, and about 2000 seedlings are sprouting in trays.  So, while we still have a little time to breathe thought we’d share a bit of our farm and our early blooms with those who might like to visit. Saturday, March 18th (date change if you watched Daytime TriCities :) we’ll gather at the Homeplace where each will create a  Bird’s Nest centerpiece that will keep all Spring and beyond and then a Spring bouquet. All materials, including moss from the old road bed, dried and fresh flowers, and an assortment of things found in our fields and woodlands will be available as we assemble a flower farmer’s version of a bird’s nest and bouquet. We’re also saving two spots for single moms at no charge. So if you know a single mom, why not offer to keep her kiddos so she can have a free morning at the farm!

Then we’ll make a small bouquet with whatever nature lends us mid-march. Daffodils for sure as they’ve already begun to open.
