Congratulations Graduates!

School's finally out for the summer--and for some it's out for good.  We'd like to offer our congratulations to all graduates, and wish them well in their journeys. 

Do you have a graduate in your life?  Here are some ideas for graduations gifts that will be meaningful and memorable. 


Fresh flowers are of course a wonderful choice for graduation, ask about what's in season to get a bright bouquet to mark the occasion.

Lifetimes candles live up to their names, burning for years before needing a refill of paraffin, making them a gift that will last a lifetime and be a reminder of graduation for years to come.

Hummingbird season is here!

Hummingbirds are one of the smallest signs of summer--but what kinds of things can do you to attract them to your yard?

1. RED!

Hummingbirds are drawn to the color red, and will be drawn to yards with bright red flowers or decorations. 

2. Plant the right flowers.

The best flowers for hummingbirds are those with tubular blooms (they hold the most nectar).  Favorites include lilies, petunias, and honeysuckle.

3. Set up a feeder.

Any commercial hummingbird feeder will do, but glass feeders are easier to clean.  Feed one part sugar to three parts water and wait.

Follow these steps and your yard will soon become a hummingbird haven.

Mother's Day Roundup

Wow, what a weekend!  Between five proms, two weddings, and of course all the craziness that comes with Mother's day, this year was one for the books!  We used thousands of roses alone, not to mention hundreds of other flowers for corsages, bouquets, arrangements and everything in between.  But the fun's not over--we're just getting started!

We have outdoor hanging plants and patio pots available in a wide variety of colors and styles, so if your outdoor space is in need of a revamp, come pick something out.

With the warmer weather comes dreaded mosquito season, but we have our Murphy's Naturals line of mosquito repellent candles, incense sticks and sprays back in stock.  All natural, effective bug control!

Mosquito & Flying Insect Repellent Candle
Another effective natural bug spray is Good Earth Naturals Squito Spray, also in stock for the summer.

We're also planning some summer events at our store to celebrate the summer, stay tuned for more information. 

So, thanks for the great Mother's Day season, and we hope to see you this summer for more floral fun!
