Happy Monday, all. Isn't it wonderful to have a fresh new week ahead of us? Taking a moment to stop and smell what's blooming seems to be the perfect way to start things out right, so come with me to one of my favorite resources for flowers, The Seattle Wholesale Growers Market.
Housed in an historic warehouse in Seattle's Georgetown neighborhood, the cooperative supports local farmers who sell their flowers, greens and ornamentals directly to florists and stores.
And on Fridays, from 10 to noon, the general public is welcome to shop, too. So it's the perfect place gather blooms for weekend events, or just to bring a fresh bouquet of seasonal loveliness home (while supporting local farmers).
Last week the warehouse was bursting with high summer color - bright dahlias, snapdragons, zinnias and antiquing hydrangeas. Happy sunflowers were perfect for a party, and the deepest, reddest dahlias are currently brightening up the kitchen counter.
