Check out the faces behind the flowers of American Flowers Week! (c) Mary Grace Long Photograph

A lot of great people have shared their talents to help kick off American Flowers Week for 2016 and I was able to spend time with a number of them yesterday during the Seattle Wholesale Growers Market’s flower farm tour for customers.

Above, please meet Kelly Uhlig and Pam Uhlig of Sonshine Farm of Whidbey Island, Washington. And standing/smiling next to me is Jan Roozen of Choice Bulb Farms, of Mt. Vernon, Washington.

Kelly and Pam donated their luscious white tulips and Jan donated the lovely blue grape hyaciths all seen in the poster of our red-white-and-blue Flower Fro that Susan McLeary of Passionflower designed.
