31 Days of Nature Walks-Little Buds Bouquets

IMG_8139.jpg

For well over a year now, Aneliese has been asking to have a table at the market selling flower bouquets. She loves to run out to her garden or around the pasture and yard gathering flowers for the center of the table and she really does it beautifully. 

At this point, I'm not sure that she cares so much about making money by selling her bouquets as it is that she wants to share them with other people but she does like the idea of saving up for a puppy. Then too the market is one of their favorite places so I think she like the idea of being part of it.

After quite a lot of discussion, she and I (with some help from Daddy, Cecily, and Kathleen) are going to go into a little flower business together, selling fresh cut flowers. Little Buds Bouquets. We love flowers, we love being in the garden together and I like encouraging her endeavors so we are going to try it out.

Today we went and picked out many beautiful tulip and daffodil bulbs for our spring bouquets. We had also heard of a lady who was selling Dahlias for a great price so we went there as well. Even though her Dahlias are nearing the end of the season, we were still awed by how gorgeous they all were. We may have ended up with more than we had intended and tomorrow will be spent getting the tubers ready for storage.

Today we went and picked out many beautiful tulip and daffodil bulbs for our spring bouquets. We are hoping to have flowers for spring, summer and fall so are working on collecting what we will need. We had also heard of a lady who was selling Dahlias for a great price so we went there as well. Even though her Dahlias are nearing the end of the season, we were still awed by how gorgeous they all were. We may have ended up with more than we had intended and tomorrow will be spent getting the tubers ready for storage.
