|The last of our late blooming varieties have shed their
petals and our traditional tulip season has come to a close. It was a season unlike
any other we've experienced. As quickly as we found ourselves gearing up to
welcome visitors to our garden and fields, we found ourselves trying to find
any and every way to tell people to stay home and stay safe.
Being closed to the public came with several challenges. We
felt extremely blessed by the outpouring of support of our flowers and
understand this experience did not come free of frustration. Reflecting on this
past season, we know there are areas we can improve upon while working with a
limited staff. To the people whose phone calls we missed, whose messages may
not have been returned and whose emails got lost in the mix - please know we
DO care, and you ARE important to us. The love and support from people
near and far has meant the world to RoozenGaarde. We thank you for sharing us
with your friends, your family, and your coworkers. Thank you for spreading the
word through social media and word of mouth. Thank you for being a huge reason
we can look forward to the future, continue to grow our flowers, and share our blooms. THANK YOU!
As we mentioned in our last newsletter, if there is anything
we learned from the woman who built RoozenGaarde it is this, struggle provides
an opportunity for growth and a chance to improve upon the past. While we look
forward to our next season ahead - one that brings fresh cut peonies for ordering and
dahlias for viewing, we also want you to remember the beauty of our blooms
during the 2020 tulip season. The blessing of trying to capture every moment
through a camera, means we have an abundance of content without an expiration
date that we can continue to share through Facebook, Instagram, and our website. Even though the tulip
season may be over, we aren't ready just yet to let it go.
Wishing all our friends happy, healthy gardening!
The RoozenGaarde Team
