Sarah's Wedding flowers
This past Saturday my daughter Sarah married my wife's naephew and I did the flowers at Wytchwood Farm in N. Stonington, CT. Luckily we had 5 inches of rain and it was chilly on Friday and Saturday so the flowers stayed good. I bought several hundred beautiful peonies grown by my cousin, Jos Konst, which were outstanding and brought down a truck full of late lilacs and iris from my garden in W. Newbury. Because I picked the lilacs when it was cool (in fact it was cold and rainy), and put them right away into deep buckets of water after smashing the stems (and I used some of that floral life stuff), they held up very well. With iris, I got rid of the open flowers and arranged with the buds in mind.
