One of the at least 10 butterflies I see on a typical morning.
“Stop and smell the roses,” or in my case zinnias, lemon basil, tansy and mountain mint. Working at a nursery is hard work. It’s more often than not hot as hell, theres bugs and insects and creatures and bee stings, heavy lifting, back breaking, hole digging work to be done. But at Belvedere Farm our 7 acres of flowers start from seed. Seeds are sown, nurtured, transplanted, nurtured some more, cut, and arranged by about 10 sets of hands. Then theres pricing, market preparation, side work and lots of other jobs to be done. But thats what makes it rewarding. You get a beautiful, hand grown with sun water and sweat product that really is cheaper than therapy.
Flowers make people happy.
