It’s April which means lilac season is almost here! Another one of my fave flowers, lilacs hold a special place in my heart.
If you’re like me, you love your fur babies and your plant babies, but sometimes the two just don’t mix. Especially if you have a cat like Hettie who treats her owner Michele’s maidenhair fern like her own private salad bar! Luckily for Hettie and Michele, the maidenhair is not toxic to cats. But there are many common houseplants that are. While some can be fatal, most are not and will just make Fido of Fluffy not feel so good. And nothing’s worse than a sick baby fur or otherwise.
I love spring! Of all the seasons it is my favorite. Maybe it has something to do with the fact that I was born in the spring or that green is my favorite color or any number of other reasons but it is the one season that resonates with me the strongest.
Now hopefully many of you just received a bouquet or an arrangement of beautiful fresh cut flowers for Valentine’s Day, that’s if the snow and ice didn’t thwart your sweetheart’s plans as it did for many here in the Pacific Northwest. And I am sure you have wondered at one time or another as to what is the best way to make them last as long as possible?
Ok, I admit it, I love carnations! There I said it…whew! I finally got that off my chest. As someone in the floral industry, it is often hard to admit that you like the carnation. Once a super popular flower, somewhere over the years it got a bad rap and liking them gave you a reputation for being cheap and without taste.
While it really is just a date change and continuation of time, the new year always feels like a new beginning to me
Every year come December, people all over the world ‘deck the halls with boughs of holly’, pine, fir and other greenery. But did you ever wonder where this tradition came from?
Needless to say 2020 has not been the best year by a longshot. But despite all the crap that was thrown at us this year, I find that there is still so much to be grateful for.
Each year right after Labor Day, chrysanthemum plants seem to materialize out of the blue at grocery stores, home improvement stores and garden centers. Mums are the poster child of fall in the world of flowers and no other flower can match the chrysanthemum as the epitome of fall.
With Halloween just around the corner, I thought it would be fun to showcase some of the creepy and gruesome members of the floral and plant world....and no, I am not one of them!!!
Welcome October! This is one of my favorite months out of the year and to me, the epitome of fall.
I loved working with Eleanor & Max on their wedding and wanted to share a little of their day.
Now that wedding season is upon us I thought I would share with you the 5 most popular wedding flowers.
For as long as I can remember I have wanted to go to Italy. Every book I have read or movie that I have seen which takes place in Italy just pulls at my heartstrings and awakens in me this unexplainable deep connection to Italia. I feel it in my soul. (Or maybe it’s just the pizza talking!)
