August Cut Flower List

Updated from 2016:
As the snow deepens into a full blown blizzard I'm working on my flower lists. I double checked all the bloom times and added the new flowers we grow. It's not nearly as fun as growing and arranging flowers but hopefully it will be of some help to those of you planning an event.

Here's the  August list with a few photos.
