Alabama to Alaska -our 2017 flower adventures at Scenic Place Peonies

Never in my wildest dreams would I have imagined 2017 bringing  so many long distance floral adventures  - first Washington DC and 3 months later, North to  Alaska!  I had the great pleasure of meeting Beth Van Sandt and Kurt Weichhand, owners of Scenic Place Peonies in Homer Alaska , while working on the First Ladies Luncheon in Washington in May.  After hearing about their  July  field to vase dinner, I was so excited to have  the perfect reason to visit and work as a volunteer on their farm. For three flower filled days I worked alongside Beth and Kurt, their amazing flower farm team, Debra Prinzing  (read her American flowers week post  here ) and Kelly Shore (fellow chapel designer) in peony paradise. The amazing food and  fellowship  offered by this couple on their beautiful property will never be forgotten. And the flowers- the most beautiful varieties and all as big as my open palm and face... well a picture is worth a thousand words...
