“My bouquet was GORGEOUS! Perfect, beautiful, would not change a thing.” -Sarah B.
Love this shot of one of our happy couples looking down Eastsound from Ship’s Bay. The food and the views at the Inn at Ship’s Bay are just spectacular.
It’s always fun to see which of the dozens of dahlia varieties we grow will bloom first. This year it’s Linda’s Baby out of the gate! She had a bit of a lead on account of the fact that she’s grown in the hoophouse. We reserve some of our precious covered space to grow these coveted varieties. Next year we should have plenty of tubers of Linda’s Baby, Peaches ‘n Cream, Sweet Natalie & Castle Drive to sell in our online shop.
Peony season has begun! Every morning & evening we harvest these stunning flowers to catch them right before they open so that customers get a nice long show. Corals & reds bloom first here followed by the pinks, whites & blushes of June. They usually get going around Memorial Day making a spectacular start to summer.
A peony plant must be 3 years old before it’s mature enough for cuts. It’s a long wait but worth it. We will harvest over 2,000 peonies this season . . . every one a beauty.
