Locally Grown Flower Bouquets

We have a grocery store not too far from me that sells mostly organic foods, locally grown veggies, locally raised beef, artisan cheeses, etc.

I love going there to pick up a special meal every so often.


They also sell locally grown flower bouquets.  This one was $4.99 for the bunch.  Isn't it pretty?
Welcome Home,
Penny

Penny, I love it. It does look like you just went out and picked it! I wish we had a store like that here. Sounds wonderful.

Penny the flowers are gorgeous, and a super price, plus locally grown means they are easier on the environment, since they are not shipped half way around the world. I love stores like this one you describe.

So pretty and such a good deal. Is that Baptisia or sweet peas in the bunch?

BEAUTIFUL Penny! I can't believe that bunch was only $4.99, great deal! Martina

Penny may I ask how did you get your comments numbered? Martina

Very, very pretty and much more lovely than the generic bouquets at the grocery store. Looks perfect right there on your counter, too.

That bouquet is pretty enough to have come from your own garden!

That's an incredibly nice bouquet for $4.99.

Very pretty! A bouquet of flowers is worth every penny. :) We have a nice store coming in soon that sells alot of organic. They are also advertising wonderfully prepared food. Can't wait to check it out.

Oh, I've been shopping for granite and appliances. So many decisions and it's hard to decide.

They are beautiful flowers for a wonderful price, Penny! I also enjoyed seeing your prolific veggie garden in the prior post! I love Swiss chard and I'd be so happy if i could grow the amount you are able to grow.

Sorry I haven't been able to comment lately due to the ongoing Blogger problem. I finally found the trick to be able to sign in to your comments and a few others I could not comment on.

Fresh flowers are a favorite of mine! I love to go to our local Trader Joe's to buy them. I can have flowers all over the house for less than $20 and they last sometimes for two weeks.

That is a lovely bouquet. We have an Amish market here on 7th Avenue that has all kinds of neat stuff. The new Underground Bakery across the street from them is my favorite place too.

Local grown flowers and wildflower bouquets are always the prettiest! Would love to find a little shop like the one you have in your area.

Can't get past the beautiful Rooster :-)

I love fresh flowers! I've decided I need to have them in my home often. Today I'll probably bring some peonies in from the garden but I won't hesitate to buy bouquets when mine are gone. Your bouquet is lovely!
