Late spring in a Texas flower farm

When does it change from spring to summer? The 'summer solstice' isn't until June 21st. It gets hot here way before that! Spring time is fleeting in the south. It has been pretty cool this year up until now. I am going to have to start harvesting earlier! 

Thank you to all who support local flora at the farmers' markets! This would not be a thing without you! 

Have a look at what is in the garden now:

Still have lisianthus! The lissies started blooming weeks ago and haven't stopped. The first flush will taper off pretty quick. Probably by this weekend. But we have lots of zinnias coming along:

Some other things ready for harvest are some late season ornamental cabbage. The end of delphiniums is coming, but will be replaced by something else equally spectacular. Then there's 'Paper Moon' scabiosa pod. They are very unique. They look like alien eyeballs.

 

Mother's Day was a hit! It's a fun holiday for getting creative with design. Something I am always practicing.
