Flower Farmers

Another AWESOME weekend spent with flower farmers from Oregon, Washington and a couple from back East from Illinois and Maryland.  We enjoyed a tour of J. Foss Flower Farm.  Owner, flower farmer Janet Foss and she is a one woman show.  Janet has 5 or so high tunnels and 5 acres of cut woodies and flowers it was truly amazing to see the variety of stuff she had.  A huge selection of clematis and she makes these gorgeous wreaths from her pussy willow she grows several variety on the farm.  I know there was a flower farmer that had to stay home on the farm and missed this tour so here you go a few pictures.............
