Great Flowers for Entertaining at Skylands

At my home in Maine, flowers are always used as decoration in most of the rooms.  We grow all of the flowers used there in a large cutting garden amongst the vegetable garden.  All are protected from the deer by a large wooden lattice fence.

Kevin Sharkey has taken on the pleasurable chore of flower arranger, cutter, and he does a magnificent job of bringing the outdoors inside and creating extraordinary flower arrangements that make everyone ooooh and aaah!

For the past two weeks, while we were all in Maine vacationing, entertaining, cooking, hiking, boating and meeting friends, flowers filled the house.

Please enjoy the colorful and beautiful blooms.
