I knew nothing about Rudbeckia before I started this small flower farm. I had a bed with coneflowers that came with the house, but honestly I wanted to pull them. .... their cousin Rudbeckia has stolen my heart. Sahara is divine. . . . #flowerfarmer #featheredcottage #rudbeckia #florist #cleflorist #flowerlove #localflowers #slowflowers

May, Spring Flowers, and Mother’s Day - that perfect combination!
Dreaming about life last year. We were under construction on the addition and I felt the pressure of the daily chaos, but I’d welcome those days now. This year I’m waking up at 3 am unable to go back to sleep. In the night I lay awake stress recycling about my 85 year old parents and how to keep them safe...from a distance. I worry about the world and I just can’t wrap my mind around the numbers and I know that each one represents someone’s Mother, Father, sister, brother, child, lover, friend... I dig in the dirt. I hug a chicken. I say a prayer and give thanks that nature is untouched by this awful event in time. Flowers help. Talking with a friend helps. Baking the Levain style chocolate chip cookies distracts me for a bit and that helps (oh soooo good -search the recipe on YouTube.) Thanks and prayers sent out to those who are working so hard to care for us. Sending light, and love, and thoughts of beautiful flowers to soothe the soul. Xxo
Happy Sunday! Little desk arrangement to brighten your day. 62 days until spring - but who’s counting? 😉 . . . #farmerflorist #clevelandflorist #featheredcottage #flowerlove
