Spread the cheer

Hi! I am so glad you are here. My name is Sharon Kegerreis. I grow flowers from seed and create bouquets from annuals, perennials and my meadow flora in Chelsea, Michigan. My sustainably-grown flowers bloom seasonally on roughly a half an acre in various gardens of my 4.75 acres.

A longtime grower, my dream for a flower stand was fulfilled in 2019 with the launch of Cheerful Nature Bouquets. While I don’t have the flower stand due to limited road traffic, I sell my bouquets at Agricole Farm Stop in downtown Chelsea, provide porch pick up of bouquets and will personally deliver bouquets in my community.

My mission is to spread cheer and help heal my community. I provide free bouquets to school-age children who could use a pick-me-up. New this year, I am also offering free bouquets to teachers and healthcare workers.

Bouquets to go

What a busy month it has been! * Planting seeds (yes — sowing through June), digging up new beds for many cuttings/divides from friends and families, including perennial Forget-Me-Nots, Irises, anemones, Feverfew, peonies, mystery flowers (hmmm?), phlox and more. * Launching a new business with deliveries for grad parties and weekly to Agricole Farm Stop on Tuesdays. * Organizing my work station for creating bouquets and settling into a routine for weeding, planning and marketing. This week, I’ll finally design and order business cards, so I can start handing them out when people ask for them. Simple, yet essential!

There is so much joy in the act of digging in the dirt, sowing seeds and watching the efforts bloom. I have a vision for more raised beds and a beautiful hillside garden for more flowers in 2020. Meanwhile, I am savoring harvests to create wild beauty bouquets with my garden flowers and flora foraged from my meadow.

Off on a wild bouquet ride!

Cheerful Nature Bouquets debuted at the Sjogren/Gofton grad parties on June 8 and 9. Mom turned 84 on June 8, so a special weekend all around! Bouquets centered the white-clothed tables surrounded by photographs of the graduates. The parties were held at the Chelsea Depot, a perfect launch pad for my bouquets! Since then, deliveries have been made to friends and a second grad party. Another grad party this week wraps up a fun first round of bouquet harvesting and creating.

This week, Cheerful Nature Bouquets also debuts at Agricole Farm Stop, a new grocery store venture in downtown Chelsea. Agricole will be the source for locally grown food, flowers and other artisan products with 75 percent of sales going back to the producers. Amazing! Agricole models itself after longtime Ann Arbor favorite, Argus Farm Stop.

Agricole — right on Main Street in a renovated historic livery — is hosting an Open House on June 20 from 6:00 to 9:00 p.m. during Chelsea’s Sounds & Sights on Thursday nights. My bouquets will make their debut during the Open House. I’m in good company with other artisan flower growers who will be selling market bouquets at Agricole as well. Join us for noshing and celebrating!

When Agricole officially opens this month, Cheerful Nature Bouquets will be delivered fresh on Tuesdays in recycled jars, ideal for spreading weekly cheer to friends, teachers, bosses, coworkers, parents and more.

Wild bouquet beauties ready to launch!

Let it glow!

This is an exciting weekend! Cheerful Nature Bouquets is making its debut at a grad party at the Chelsea Depot on Saturday. Bouquets of garden beauties with meadow accents will grace the tables and provide a pretty backdrop to a fun gathering for Sophie, followed by a second grad party on Sunday for Natalie. I’m so delighted to help set the scene at their celebratory events. Photos to follow!
