I wanted to share a few images I took over the weekend during my visit to Floret Flower Farm in the Skagit Valley in Washington. I had the opportunuty to stop by during dahlia harvest because of my generous friend Georgianna who is a kindred flower lover. She introduced me to Erin Benzakein, the founder of Floret which is both a flower farm and a floral design studio. It was an absolute pleasure to meet Erin as she has this contagious positive energy and entrepreneurial spirit. She and her husband are incredibly hard workers. I got to witness them for a few hours as they harvested the dahlias, filling their pick up truck again and again and again. As I walked around their farm I could see their tireless effort to grow new varieties, investigate other planting opportunites in their green houses and care for this oasis in the valley. Erin offers some fantastic looking workshops at her farm, you can check them out here. You can also follow along with Erin on her incredible instagram feed here.
A really special day, thank you Erin and Georgianna!
