First Week of May on Our Cut Flower Farm

First Week of May on Our Cut Flower Farm

As the first week of May comes around on the farm, the daffodils, tulips, and hyacinths are all showing off their colorful blooms. Woohoo!!! The air is filled with the sweet scent of the flowers. Among all the blooms, the scent of the tulips stands out the most. It reminds me of the smell of roses. Here is a picture of me holding my first tulip harvest of the year (very tired from all the shoveling of soil and compost, spring planting, and lack of sleep, but feeling joyful because of the abundant harvest).

Compared to tulips, I love daffodils even more. They always bloom the first in the spring, announcing the arrival of spring. While all the daffodils are beautiful in their own right, there are a few standout varieties that steal my heart. One such variety is Daffodil Electrus, with its reflexed petals and striking coral orange center. It's a true showstopper that never fails to impress.

Another favorite is Daffodil Bridal Crown, a multi-flowered small daffodil that exudes elegance and charm. Its delicate blooms add a touch of whimsy to the garden.

 And this is Sweet Love, another small flowered variety but super adorable and long-lasting. It also has the sweetest scent.

I can't wait for more flowers to come! I'm counting down the minutes until the next batch of blooms arrives!
