Beautiful Dahlia Arrangements from My Garden

My home is filled with gorgeous, bright, and colorful dahlia blooms - I just love them all.

As you know, we planted our first all-dahlia garden this year at my Bedford, New York farm. Many of you have seen some of the photos on my Instagram page @MarthaStewart48. The garden was planted in June and through the summer, we all watched its progression. By late August, we had many beautiful dahlias with flowers ranging from small to giant dinner plate size. Some of the dahlia tubers are from Floret, a family farm and floral design studio in the State of Washington that specializes in organic, handcrafted arrangements for special events. Others came from Brent and Becky’s, a family-owned farm and garden in Gloucester, Virginia. And this week when the garden was at its peak, we cut a variety of dahlias to make several cheerful arrangements.

Enjoy these photos.

My New Kubota Equipment

I am always on the lookout for innovative, sensible and easy-to-use tools and supplies to use around my Bedford, New York farm.

Not long ago, I received several pieces from Kubota USA, a leading manufacturer of farming machinery, lawn and garden equipment, hay tools and spreaders, turf products, and utility vehicles. Some of the pieces I received include a tractor and loader, a zero turn mower, a stand-on mower, and a push mower. My outdoor grounds crew uses all these machines on a daily basis - to mow the paddocks and fields, pull the hay wagons, transport compost and mulch, and many, many other chores. I’ve been using Kubota products for years and love how easy they are to maneuver. If you follow me on my Instagram page @MarthaStewart48, you probably saw me mowing my large party lawn. These machines are great additions to my working farm and I am excited to use every single one.

Here are some photos - enjoy.

My Summer in Maine 2019, Part Three

Thank you for all the wonderful comments you’ve shared - I’m glad you’re enjoying these photos from my annual trip to Maine.

I always enjoy the time I spend at my Skylands home. My daughter, Alexis, and my two grandchildren stay there for the entire month of August. We love nature - the hikes, the lakes, and the many picturesque views. And of course, all the great food from the local fisheries and restaurants, the farmers’ markets, and my garden. During my visit, I also hosted a lovely brunch for the Garden Club of America, took a seaplane ride over Mount Desert Island, and attended the Blue Hill Fair with my grandchildren.

Enjoy these last photos of my 2019 summer trip to Maine.
