STONE BARNS FLOWER CSA WEEK 11

Week 11... that means only 4 more to go! Wow, this summer has been sooooooooo hot but it now seems to have flown by. Week 11's photos were not taken by me; rather by the very capable duo, Lauren and Marta (our summer intern.) I was busy running off to Richmond, VA. This bouquet smelled SO good! See those sage leaves shooting out? Not only do they look great, they smelled great too.

STONE BARNS FLOWER CSA WEEK 9

I am so behind (again!) posting weeks 9 and 10, back to back, because well, it's Wed and we are getting Week 11 TODAY! I have to say that this has been a bit overwhelming and next time I do this, will definitely not be taking photos, and just be enjoying the flowers.

Loved the peaches and oranges in this bouquet (found a great stone wall as backdrop)

Wild flowers on top of wild flowers! We found a small bed of queen anne's lace that looked like clouds

STONE BARNS FLOWER CSA WEEK 8

Week 8: by far, my favorite! Apricot hues and accents really made this bouquet look very rustic and summery at the same time.

STONE BARNS FLOWER CSA WEEK 5

Finally getting caught up! This is the Flower CSA from last week, and the prettiest so far... all yellows and oranges coordinated to create a "wow" factor.  And many thanks again to my neighbor, Bobbie, who picked it up for me, along with hers at Stone Barns.

Week 5, prettiest so far!

We asked our summer intern, Marta, to pose with the flowers since she matched them :)

HAND LETTERING ENVELOPES + PHOTOGRAPHY

I try to practice hand lettering every chance I get... plus the recipient is always so impressed! Here's one that I used to practice getting the light right with my camera, while being coached by our photography advisor, Elena Wolfe.

When I sent this note, Professor Mauer (at Colgate University) was so impressed she wrote me back a note saying this was the nicest mail to ever to go across her in-box.

STONE BARNS FLOWER CSA WEEK 2

Yes, I am waaaay behind on posting these photos! Week 2 was kind of.... weedy. I know, I know, these are wild flowers, but it felt like getting a bunch of weeds that happened to have flowers on them.

On the bright side, Stone Barnes sent out an email to "come pick your own sweetpea!"
