Four years ago today was my light bulb moment - the starting point of this entire floral adventure. I was sitting at the kitchen table, lamenting to my roommate that I felt stuck in my job and needed a hobby to breakaway from the daily grind on my computer screen. Some leftover photoshoot flowers from work were sitting in a jar on the table, and as I brainstormed a list of possible ideas (Photography? Calligraphy? Pottery? Sketching?) I focused on the foreground and it suddenly clicked - flowers. I should work with flowers.
I had thought to just pick it up as a hobby - a few bunches of supermarket flowers to play with here and there, a personal blog to give me a reason to keep buying flowers, a few bouquets for friends’ birthdays to practice my new skill. I had no clue that that day would be the beginnings of what would become a life changing passion.
Prior to this moment, I had zero desire to ever run my own business and had resigned myself to the idea that my career wasn’t necessarily going to be something I loved - that I just needed a job that I could do well and that paid the bills. Through floral design and the eventual creation of this business, I’ve learned so much and have never felt so empowered, brave, and excited to do my work. It hasn’t been an easy process, but it’s been worth every second of exhaustion, confusion, and hard work. I’m learning to not be afraid of change and to be open to taking a different road than what I had planned. There’s still so much to learn and it’s still hard to stay motivated some days when the exhaustion has worn me thin, but it’s reminders like today that keep me pushing forward. That a little leap of faith can grow into something much bigger and better than you ever dreamed for yourself 💛

• Evening everyone 👋🏼 • I’ve finally ordered some photos, I take so many of Isla and think “I really need to print some” - and then never do, so I’m glad I’ve got some on the way. I’ve ordered them from Free Prints just using their app. • I’m also thrilled to have been asked by @bloomandwild to continue as a #Bloomandwildpartner for the next three months. • They really are such incredible bunches and so different to any other type of flowers I’ve had before. • I chose the Katy bunch, the colours and the style of these flowers I just love. • If you would like a discounted bunch you can use the link in my bio for £10 off your first order and it can then be used for 15% off further orders.

These are yesterday's subscription bouquets, just before we delivered them to our customer doors. Making mix bouquets is one of my favorite farm chores. In addition to our bouquet subscription, we also sell our flowers at the @daybreakfarmersmarket on Saturdays through the season. We also offered DIY buckets, for parties and weddings. And next year we plan on expanding our sales to florists ( We are selling the florists this year, but plan on using the off season this winter to streamline the process for everyone)
Growing flowers here in Utah can be a challenge, but I think that finding markets for our flowers can be just as big of a hurdle. It is one of the reasons that we decided to start this association, to help our local farms be accessible to customers. I love that we have a website that folks can get on and find local flower farmers with a click of a button. In the next few weeks, that map is going to be filling up as we add all those that joined during our welcome event. I'm looking forward to seeing my farm on the map too. Have you had a chance to check it out? Will your farm be on that map? #utahcutflowerfarmassociation
The magnificent Echinops! 🙌🌸➡️ #Echinops can be an amazing addition to your perennial or cutting garden. The different species give an array of different heights and color, ranging from frosty white to bright blue. Commonly called globe thistle, this plant adds a sharp texture to the garden in its leaves, upright stature, and spiky golf ball-sized flower heads. It attracts butterflies, bees, and birds, allowing your garden to thrive with life. 🐝🦋👩🌾👨🌾 #pollinators #flowersofig

Scoop scabiosa - still so amazed by this flower. They are a much bigger initial investment than regular scabiosa but they are so worth it. They produce so many flowers!
