Its been almost two weeks since my last post... I really really have to be harder on myself about getting these up more frequently, so please feel free to give me a push! BUT I have been oh so busy. I turned 26 last week, and in my life, every year is a big party year... ha! I just REALLY love parties, and so I've been busy celebrating.
Anyway, Today I'm sharing my snaps from running through the fields of Geraldine's peony farm just outside of Mt Vernon in Washington State, USA.
As I mentioned in my previous posts, I was blessed with the opportunity to be a part of Team Floret again this year and help teach students from all over the world at Erin's (Floret) insane, floral'd up design workshop in the Skagit Valley. You could check out these posts here & here
A couple of days before the workshop started, the prep began! And so after a morning filled with harvesting at Erin & Chris' farm (which is the floral famous 'Floret') with the team, we headed off for a drive up the highway to Geraldine's peony PARADISE!
I'm not entirely sure how Erin and Geraldine met, but I were sure glad they had! Geraldine supplies the peonies for the 'Floret Peony Workshop' in June every year. She's the sweetest little lady & has been farming peonies for over 20 years!! Through this connection, we were lucky enough to have this amazing and intimate experience that's not all that easy to come by!

I also threw a photo in here on the mountains you could see from the farm... snow capped! SO beautiful!
*I'm very sorry, but I can not share the details of Geraldines peony farm, this is a private farm and not something I can't share publically :)
