For those of you waiting for fresh flowers from Old Mission Flowers, owner Ginny Coulter sent me a note that they are now open! And the daffodils and tulips are blooming! Happy news, indeed.

UPDATED, MAY 23, 2020: Ginny just emailed to let me know that the u-pick option at Old Mission Flowers is now available. Please bring your own mask, bucket of water, gloves and clippers. Tulips are $2 each, 6 for $10, or 10 for $15. Pay via cash, check or PayPal.

PREVIOUS STORY, MAY 7, 2020: But because of these interesting pandemic times we’re living in, there are a few changes to the opening this year. Due to concerns over customers sharing cutting tools and buckets, Ginny said that for now, she is only selling bouquets of flowers that she has already cut. She is also being very careful to wipe down the table and surrounding area with bleach throughout the day.

Bouquets are available in $10 and $15 sizes, and they are ready and waiting for you in the little farmstand at the entrance to the flower patch, located at 16550 Center Road, on the corner of Center Road and Ladd Road, just north of Old Mission Peninsula United Methodist Church.

There is a tube at the stand where you can make your payment, and Ginny is exploring the possibility of digital payments like Venmo, PayPal or Apple Pay, but is not quite there yet. We’ll keep you posted on that.

Ginny is also experimenting with using cans as vases – they’re lightweight, they fit in a cupholder, they’re a good shape, and they’re recyclable. She ordered some cans from the craft brew suppliers to check them out, and currently has four cases in varying sizes. Let her know if you like them!

Happy May! Happy Cheery Flowers!
