Last week there was a flower explosion in my garden … a perfect time to make bokays and have BOKAY DAY!
During the growing season I designate Fridays as a day to make bokays to deliver, but last weekend I had extra time and plenty of flowers and decided to text out random invitations for people to come and get them–first come, first serve.
BOKAY DAY starts with “the gathering.” Gathering containers and getting out my little black wagon for running around the garden gathering the pretties. This BOKAY DAY ended with friends coming by to pick up flowers! Some brought their children! I loved watching everyone look over all the flowers and decided which one(s) to take home. I heard about their favorite colors and shapes–and I heard some family gardening stories I had never heard before.
Bonus: Having people come to the garden opened up so many questions about roses and gardening in general and I loved that too!
Since it was so hot out outside, I chose the table under the patio umbrella for my work space. It was a different climate under there!
The last bucket of flowers for the week…
