- This is my current view 😍 My family and escaped for a getaway to Maui, one of our favourite places ! So grateful for family time, sunshine and HEAT, swimming, sandy feet, happy hour (working on perfecting my Moscow Mule), avocados the size of my face, farmers markets with the freshest fruit, and unwinding after an incredibly busy summer. Aloha !!!!! 🌴

- This post has two photos and I would like to title them "newbie flower farmer who sucks at math". In the first photo you can see I am planting my pre-sprouted ranuncs 🎉🎊 from @unicornblooms However, after spacing them at 5 inches apart and rows 10 inches apart I was left with sooo many extra corms 🙈 I was baffled lol. I thought for sure I had my numbers per bed right buuuuut what I didn't realize was that my husband had made two of the greenhouse beds longer than the other two and I had based my spacing calculations on the long bed. So commence panic planting a bed of the left over ranuncs and some anemones and threw together a "low tunnel" 🙈as we leave for Maui in the wee hours of the morning and I was already scrambling to get these planted. But it's done and I'll just cross my fingers that it works. These are the moments I know I will look back and chuckle over. Such a newbie 😉

- With the summer craze behind me I've finally been able to take a peek through some of the images I shot in our garden last year. Hoping to maybe have my website finished this Winter 🙈I'm a photographer in my other life @kimkalynphotography. So combining these two passions has been so much fun !!! #flowers #peony #peonies #flowerfarmer #busybeefarmandflorals #canadiangrownflowers #flowerphotography
- Raise your hand if you love peonies as much as I do 🙋🏼These pillowy beauties are my Coral Charm variety 😍 and on this drizzly November day I am already dreaming of Spring flowers.

- Not ok Victoria, NOT ok. I can't remember a year where we've had snow this early in a long time. Yesterday afternoon the kids were bouncing on the trampoline in their t-shirts while I prepped my presprouted ranunculus and today .... SNOW 😬I still have peonies to plant 🙈Hope it doesn't stick around long.

- These crazy octopus 🐙 like little goodies are actually ranunculus corms. It is my first time growing these beauties and I am incredibly nervous lol. I followed @baremtnfarm fabulous YouTube videos on how to presprout and with any luck these should be sprouting roots in 10 days or so. Before placing these corms in a mixture of 50/50 Perlite and Peat Moss they soaked for 4 hours in a pail with an aquarium pump and air stones adding bubbles to the water. Once they were organized in the trays like this I then covered them with the remaining Peat Moss / Perlite mix. Wish me LUCK!! These varieties are Salmone and Viola. Thanks to @unicornblooms for the amazing corms !! #ranunculus #corms #flowers #flowerfarm #flowerfarmer #yyjflowers #gardening
- This is the look of a (tired) mama who is SO happy to be in the garden today !! My daughter Marina stayed the entire time at preschool today by herself, which is a huuuuge victory! So proud of her 😊 I celebrated by planting even more peonies, parrot tulips, narcissus and hyacinths 🙈and she got a slurpee 🙈Her bribery choice, and I'm not even feeling guilty about it lol.

- Not the most glamorous photo by any means. But these beautiful roots turn into one of my all time favourite flowers, the peony !! I'm so incredibly grateful for my friend @claremonicaday and this super generous gift. Clare I will take good care of these beauties and cherish them for years to come !! #peony #peonies #flowers #flowerlover #flowerfarmer #flowerfarm #busybeefarmandflorals

My other business is @kimkalynphotography This summer I was able to combine two of my loves ... photography and flowers, shooting this boudoir session for @boudoirvictoria on my flower farm 😊 SO fun !!

- My husband took the kiddos to a birthday party today. This is part of what I did while they were gone ;) Another 300 parrot tulips (Professor Rontgen and Renown Unique). So excited to see these babies in the Spring. Thx @unicornblooms 😘😘

- Thankful. With our Thanksgiving weekend this weekend I've been practicing some extra gratitude. This weekend I am thankful for long overdue visits with wonderful friends. Thankful for Canadian health care. Thankful for my kiddo's nana for watching them while I got 600 parrot tulips planted today 😍 Thankful to @unicornblooms for making it a lot easier for Canadian flower farmers to get their hands on hard-to-source beauty bulbs. Just to name a few things 😉
