Pretty, New Things

It's been far too long since I've visited the seems like I said that a lot over the 9 months of my pregnancy!  ;) 

The pregnancy part is over!  As of June 1st at 9:00 a.m., we have a new, pretty lady in our lives!  Miss Celia Opal has arrived & we're in love!  We're working on figuring out our flower work routine with a little baby who likes to eat pretty often & needs to stay out of this brutal, humid heat that we've been having recently.  Travis has been doing a TON of work!  He's tilled rows, run water out to the field, planted hundreds of dahlias, bulbs, seedlings & is constantly moving our soaker hose around to make sure that everything gets watered.  The watering part of things is going to get a bit easier soon...Travis just placed a large order for irrigation hose, tubing & timers!

The flowers are all growing like crazy {so is Celia...!!} and we'll be continuing to plant more over the next few weeks so that we have plenty of flowers to get through fall.  With Celia being so little, we've decided to wait until the end of July for The Iowa City Farmers' Market.  By this fall, you should be able to find us there & at The Freight House Farmers' Market.  In the meantime, we'll be at The Freight House every Saturday from 8 a.m. til 1 p.m...this weekend we'll have some newly blooming Chantilly snapdragons, fragrant lilies & loads of other pretty things!  

Thank you so much to everyone for your kind words and sweet gifts for Celia!
