Sarah Ryhanen's Flowers

Sarah Ryhanen is an avant garde florist based in the trendy Brooklyn neighborhood of Red Hook, known for unusual and sometimes outrageous arrangements.

In 2008, frustrated that she couldn't buy some of the types and colors of flowers she wanted, she decided to grow her own. So she and her partner, Eric Famisan, bought an old farm upstate and named it World's End.

The 1825 house.

At World's End Ryhanen and Famisan raise sheep, chickens, vegetables, and field upon field of beautiful flowers.

Ryhanen also takes lots of pictures of the enterprise and posts them to her Flickr account.

All of this brightened my day, and I hope it brightens yours.
