Crowley House Flower Farm
Guest Blog Post by Beth Syphers
Spring is winding down. The peonies have bloomed with such fantastic flare, and now dropping their petals like 4th of July fireworks. The lupine has gone to seed, providing a feast for the birds. The iris is ending the show with an encore of sputtering blooms. Spring is in the home stretch and summer is fast on her heels.
It’s early morning on the farm, barely light, a rooster crows as I start my daily routine of walking the gardens, feeding animals, checking the farm, coffee in hand I head out. I mutter to myself, noting my to-do list as I shuffle along the path, saying hello to tender flowers starts that greet me.
