In Case You Wondered...

We use Ladybugs as a preventative measure to keep our greenhouse pesticide free. 

These lovely ladies search out and eat any bad bugs that may have traveled into the greenhouse on our stock plants. 

In case you wondered what it looks like when 18,000 Ladybugs come to live on the Flower Farm...

here you go!

A very plump Isabelle came to live with us a few weeks ago. She immediately adapted to life on the Flower Farm. A few days after her arrival she became the mom of five. Isabelle introduced us to her family this morning. 

Let's just say we've had some cute and cuddly breaks around here today!

A Grateful Flower Lady!

Thank you! Job well done! The new roof on the greenhouse looks great! Just in time too! The weather service just issued a freeze warning for tomorrow morning. Now our collection of rare plants will be safe and warm!

No more hail storms, please! It's been a long week...but we are so grateful to be getting the new roof on the greenhouse before winter arrives. The first of many roof replacements on the Flower Farm. Feeling blessed the damage wasn't worse!
