The Seeds Are Here!

.
{You guys!  I'm making jewelry like a feverish elf, and also launching my first Spotted Dog Farm heirloom flower seeds, so while I intended to write a heartfelt blog about what these flower seeds mean to me, I instead am copying the message from my newsletter.  Which is still 100% true!  But not quite as personal as it could be.  So let me reiterate - seeds are magic!  For real.  And getting to grow them and pass that magic on - the most magical of all.  💛}
.
In a moment that feels like coming home again, I am so happy to offer our heirloom flower seeds in the shop.  Spotted Dog Farm started as a cut flower farm - after working as a business attorney and taking time off to have our son, I decided my return to the work force would be as a flower farmer.  Because... well, honestly just because I loved flowers and wanted to grow them.  So that's what I did.
.
.
I eventually transitioned from selling fresh flowers to preserving them in resin jewelry, but I've always loved sharing the beauty of flowers.  This year I grew a *lot* of cut flowers - and I wasn't quite sure why, since these aren't varieties I typically use in my jewelry.  But as the summer wore on I started saving the seeds, and the idea was hatched - I don't sell fresh flowers anymore, but I would love to still share the beauty of these flowers - as seeds.
.

I believe seeds are the closest thing we have to actual magic.  You start with a tiny hard nugget, and a couple of months later it is completely transformed into mature plants and flowers that bring color and happiness into your world. That, friends, feels like magic.  And the great thing about this kind of magic - these seeds want to grow.  You provide the basics of soil and sunlight and water and they'll do everything in their power to turn into flowers.  So whether you're an experienced gardener or a novice, no worries - this magic is fun, and gorgeous, and trying its hardest to help you out.
.
.
I chose these flower varieties because they're some of my favorites. These varieties are easy enough for a beginner, and many of the varieties hold their color well when dried, making beautiful arrangements or wreaths in the fall. 
.

Seeds are limited, and when they're gone they're gone... until next year.  So if you're planning your spring garden, or looking for a stocking stuffer for your favorite gardener, head on over to the shop.
