Peonies have kicked into high production mode due to the alternating hot and rainy weather. We're harvesting them multiple times per day right now, and peonies are going into everything! Our first delivery of the season to David's Market in Gambrills had two or three Charlie's White peonies tucked into every bunch:
White dianthus, stock, mock orange, blue cerinthe, campanula, and pretty purple irises join the peonies in the Summer Deliveries this weekend. Remember to order before Friday to get yours delivered on Sunday morning.
And not to worry, we're still planting like crazy in between the rain storms. A few hundred dahlias, zinnias, cosmos, sunflowers, gomphrena, and celosia will all be blooming before we know it. And last but not least, these buds will be our first roses of the 2018 season!
We hope you're staying dry, and enjoying a good book in front of a vase full of flowers. Flowers are to summer coziness as a roaring fire is to winter.
David and Lina
