Here is a photo of a bridal bouquet with flowers from Elkstone Farm that I made for my friend Leanne, who marries Seth today. I also included some herbs from the farm, too: basil for ‘best wishes’, sweet marjoram for ‘joy and happiness’, rosemary for ‘remembrance’, lavender for ‘devotion’, and of course, parsley for ‘festivity’!
Best of luck to the happy couple.
Summer is here and things are happening at Elkstone. Pear trees and more cherry trees are being planted in the Pond Garden, while the new paths there delineate the different areas that will soon be filled with berries, herbs, and flowers. Last year’s fruit trees overwintered well and are flowering beautifully; hopefully we’ll see an apple or some cherries this year!
