It’s mid November and the reality of the end of the garden season is settling in. But today I’m looking forward to a chilly but sunny day in the garden. I will be planting the last of my fall bulbs and peony roots. I’m excited about some of the peonies I’ll be planting today. James Mann, a nice clear pink with beautiful dark red flecks, Grace Batson, a cool dusty pink, a vintage theme comes to mind, Brands Magnificent, dark rose with hints of purple, and Inspector Laverne, a clear deep crimson.
The anticipation of seeing these babies bloom next June will have me out checking on them all winter long!
Today I was inspired to rename my Blog, well actually it was homework for a Blog writing lesson, so I created “Flowers Feed the Soul” as my new Blog Title! It has been a mantra for me for the last year or so after becoming aware that folks have trouble picking up fresh flowers, just because! Every Sunday afternoon last summer I was shocked and disappointed at the number of gorgeous bouquets that were leftover in our flower farm cooler. The comments usually went like this, “I wish I knew of someone’s birthday to buy them for” whaaa? Folks don’t hesitate paying a crazy amount of money for a purple tomato, but they have a hard time justifying buying fresh flowers? So I’m here to give you permission to go buy yourself some fresh flowers today! You will be nourishing yourself! One of our $18 bouquets. Every stem from our organic flower farm!
Hi, my name is Julie Schiedler and I’m sitting at my cozy little writing nook, looking out the window at a chilly November morning here in Bend, OR.
I got my first Social Security check last month, (I applied for it as soon as they would give it to me!) so I guess I am now officially a senior citizen! Some days I feel my age and other days I fell like I could run a marathon.
So I’ve done some interesting things in my life but I am now getting to do what I have always wanted to do. I have a small cutting garden nursery and garden shop.
After running the nursery for over a year now, I began to realize that not everyone knows how to garden! So I am filling in the off season with flower garden workshops! I love inspiring folks!
My blog theme will be all things flowers! Growing, Harvesting, and Arranging Flowers! Because, Flowers Feed the Soul!
