Flowers For George Washington

First in War, First in Peace, First in the Garden

How’s Your Summer Recess Going?

This week’s bouquet of fresh cut flowers are red and white Sweet William or Dianthus barbatus, which have long attracted birds, bees and butterflies and more recently the bride of a young english prince. The tight cluster of red petals incites in me an urgency to attend to matters of state that I wish transferred to our country’s current caretakers who seem oblivious to the late hour of the day – regardless if they are on recess or not.
