A BEHIND THE SCENES LOOK AT HOW WE CULTIVATE BEAUTY

LATE SUMMER HARVEST

I imagine that like me, you are feeling anxious for spring and the return of green leaves and colorful flowers! It won’t be long now, but sometimes I just need a reminder that winter will end and the flowers will return.

Late last summer, I had the privilege of meeting husband & wife team Luke and Kristine Porter. Luke and Kristine are photographer/videographers based in Utah and they were here in Asheville shooting a wedding. They joined me one foggy morning on the farm at harvest time and Luke just brightened my day by sending a short video he created. Even though the plants were tired (and not looking their best!) and I had long given up on deadheading, there was still beauty to be picked. I think the scene with smiling Stanley, my best bud farm dog, is my favorite. I hope this brightens your day like it did mine and reminds you that the flowers will be back soon!
