ABOUT ME: the life of a flower farmer

Hi, I'm Blume, the voice behind the Yellow Desk!


I recently moved to the Oregon Coast where I live in a tiny cabin, high up overlooking Tenmile Lake, surrounded by a rain forest on the Oregon Coast. My yellow desk is perched up high in the second story of the house, with an incredible view. The house is filled with windows for optimal views of the lake and forest and all of the creatures they support. We have only been here a few weeks and we have already spent countless hours enjoying deer, Canadian geese, ducks of many varieties, egrets, and other incredible wildlife right in our own yard.

Living on Ten Mile Lake with its pristine 42 mile perimeter has inspired me to refresh my blog and begin writing again much more often. I'm excited to share my journey with all of you and also to talk about all of the things that I love. I want to tell you about our amazing adventure getting here, including all of the heartbreaks and headaches it took - nothing worth having is easy to come by. I look forward to writing about the many experiences we will have ahead of us as well!

In case you were wondering, yes, Blume is my real name - it means flower in German. My last name is Bauer - it means farmer. Thus I am a flower farmer.... and honestly, I wouldn't have it any other way. I love flowers and glitter and all things sparkly. I love dance and art and yoga and nature.
